We have reinvented pallet packing with the Nipper Stretch Hood.
Use our compact, modular packaging machine to pack your pallets in a sustainable, fast, and qualitative way.
The Nipper Stretch Hood is the most energy-efficient stretch hood machine on the market. It consumes only 40 watts per pallet as the machine is fully motor driven. This is a unique feature! Thanks to its smart zero-gas design without hydraulic or pneumatic system, the Stretch Hood is more economical in use than any other pallet wrapping machine. Moreover, the Stretch Hood can also process 100% recyclable and sustainable packaging film with high percentages of recycled material. And thanks to the adjustable vertical tension (up to 15%), film-consumption is limited. Which is good for your wallet and the environment.Read more
The Nipper Stretch Hood can simultaneously carry out multiple processes. As a result, the machine can process up to 100 pallets per hour! It only makes motorized movements, ensuring high reliability and low maintenance costs.
With this fully automated packing process, the costs are fixed, and the packaged pallets are of equal quality. And fully water and dust proof.Read more
The Nipper Stretch Hood can be assembled in a modular way based on your project specifications. The machine can process different pallet sizes and films, and offers various options for transport of containers. Thanks to our modular approach, the Nipper Stretch Hood is an interesting machine to work with. Its compact design makes it perfectly suited for many different locations, even when floor space is limited.Read more
Nipper knows the challenges faced by internal logistics. Therefore, our solutions are perfectly tailored to your production process. For example, we can use the Nipper AGV or any of our other building blocks to transport the pallets to and from the stretch hood machine. Furthermore, we offer various packing methods, such as a closed or open top, string film for extra pallet stability or an extra band of film to cover the load. Moreover, the Stretch Hood is also easy and safe to use.Read more
How does stretch wrapping with the Nipper Stretch Hood work?
When a pallet is brought in, the Nipper Stretch Hood measures the dimensions of the pallet and the load height. An ultrasonic sensor emits a signal and measures the time between sending the signal and receiving the reflected signal. Based on this time measurement, the machine determines the distance, which is used to calculate the load height. The machine uses the measurements calculated to generate a customized stretch hood.
The Nipper Stretch Hood is available in three different heights, allowing for packaging of pallet loads up to 1,800, 2,500 or 3,000 millimeters.
The film is supplied via a roll in the film unit. The Nipper Stretch Hood can be equipped with two film units, making it possible to use films of various thicknesses and various degrees of transparency without having to change the roll. The stretch hood is then transported to the opener via a belt system. The film transport module can process films of various thicknesses and sizes without any problems.
Resulting in a tightly and neatly packaged pallet using sustainable films. Moreover, it is also possible to print a logo on the stretch hood, turning the packaged pallets into the perfect business card for your company.
The opener opens the stretch hood, after which the tension arms take the film from the conveyor belt and fold it over the tension spoons. The tension arms move within the stretch unit’s framework, which pulls the stretch hood over the load and the pallet. During this process, the film is pulled in both horizontal and vertical direction, ensuring extra stability while limiting the use of film. Moreover, the pallet load is now fully water and dust proof and is neatly packaged.
Human Machine Interface
The Nipper Stretch Hood’s human machine interface (HMI) has a graphical interface projected on a large, full-color touchscreen. Allowing for intuitive operation of the Stretch Hood without having to depend on the operator’s native language.
The Nipper Stretch Hood is part of a set of building blocks you can use to automate your production logistics. All building blocks work seamlessly and automatically together. The Nipper AGV, for example, is a powerful addition to your machinery as it automatically transports pallets to and from the Stretch Hood. We will gladly advice you on the most efficient solution for your production environment.
