Logistics: Thin Gauge Films Secure Heavy Loads
In November 2012, Windmöller & Hölscher KG (W&H), Lengerich, Germany held a symposium on “Load Stability” for a diverse global audience consisting of film converters, multinational packaging end users, polymer suppliers and logistics companies, as well as responsible members of the traffic police. One of the symposium’s key messages was that the whole process chain from the resin up to the wrapping machine needs to be considered. A case study was introduced showing that even in a bulk commodity market such as stretch films there is the opportunity to develop “value added” products.Beitrag auf Deutsch lesen
