High Performance Collation Shrink

Downgauging collation shrink film to 35 μm while meeting all performance requirements of the final packaging solution is a challenge. Such a thin film requires very small thickness tolerances and consistent layer distribution to achieve the needed performance. W&H's 5-layer polyolefin-dedicated (POD) technology combines consistent film performance with maximum machine output to boost line efficiency. Instead of downgauging, a performance polymer PE, acting as a booster, can be used to incorporate high amounts of post consumer recycled material while maintaining the original film thickness.


This joint development between ExxonMobil and W&H provides a highly competitive market with a cutting-edge solution. The performance polyethylene combined with high precision 5-layer film extrusiontechnology created enough reserves in the film strength, holding force and sealing performance, to add a high percentage of PCR.


The goal of this new winder generation was to achieve best-in-class winding performance, easy operation and excellent safety standards. The start of the winding pro-cess is critical, therefore we improved the surface winding from the beginning to the very end of the roll. To make the highly-complex winding process easy and reliable for all operators, W&H has developed a completely new human machine interface. Among other safety features, new light curtains and laser-supported core alignment promoted meeting the highest international safety standards.

  • Single point of operation reduces the risk of operator errors
  • Integration of W&H automation and assistence modules
  • Improved flexibility due to possible change of the winding direction
  • Improved accessibility for easier maintenance
  • Option for right angled cut with no foldback
