At CMB we work with different solutions and packaging materials, always depending on your needs
We have been designing and manufacturing machinery and packaging materials for more than thirty years. We work both cool and hot packaging, and we are specialized in packaging medium and large products in both the wood and aluminum sectors, in addition to many others. Our equipment is capable of focusing on any sector except, for the moment, that of food.
We have always bet strongly on innovation and the development of the most advanced solutions, trying to improve our machinery and packaging materials day after day, with the aim of optimizing the production lines of each of our clients, also helping them to make the process more profitable.
In this section you will see that our machinery is able to work with different packaging materials, such as bubble polyethylene film or stretch film, or they can even be combined, offering the maximum degree of protection for your products.
If you have questions or need detailed information, do not hesitate to contact us so that we can study the needs of your production line, until you find the optimal and most suitable packaging solution. Keep reading!
Polyethylene bubble film and stretch film
Wrapping systems combining bubble and stretch film to obtain high level protection and low power costs. Packaging systems that combine the bubble film with the stretch film, thereby obtaining high protection along with low energy consumption
Polyethylene stretch film
The stretch film wrapper machines allow the packaging process to be carried out with a very low cost of the applied material. You can stack products and you will obtain a high degree of fastening. The packaging process is much more economical than the retractable one, since the energy consumption is lower, and you do not need to adapt the size of the reel to the product to be packed.
Great protection of the product thanks to the possibility of combining any type of material, without limits …
It offers the possibility of combining superimposed layers of a great variety of packaging materials, achieving an unbeatable degree of protection and full guarantees.
Shrink Polyethylene Film
The packaging with shrink film allows a good visualization of the products and, at the same time, a high production, at a very competitive cost.
Shrink Polyethylene Film for Bottom Overlap Welding
Packaging with shrink film with bottom overlap welding is ideal for large runs of products in the same format that require a suitable aesthetic presence. It allows to obtain high quality finishes and high productions at very competitive prices.
Stretch film machines allow the packaging process to be carried out with a very low cost of the applied material. You will be able to work with stacked packages, with a high degree of support. The packaging process is much more economical than shrink wrapping because energy consumption is lower, and it is not necessary to adapt the size of the reel to the product to be packaged.
Combination of materials
It offers the possibility of combining a wide variety of packaging materials in superimposed layers, achieving an unbeatable degree of protection with full guarantees.
Shrink film packaging allows for good product visualisation and, at the same time, high output at a very competitive cost.
Cold packaging uses polyethylene film, a material that allows tying, packing and protecting objects in a simple and practical way, with a result that provides safety and fastening at the same time to all packaged products, making it possible for them to arrive at their destination in perfect condition.
This type of packaging is ideal for parts that do not have irregular protrusions, such as doors. It is a simple and economical type of packaging, which is indicated for transport to the distribution warehouses.
It is important to keep in mind that this is a packaging that is not recommended for products that go directly to the end customer, since over time it could lose properties. In addition, its finish is not optimal as offered by heat packaging.
Our packaging machinery can use different types of materials, according to the requirements of each industrial sector. Polyethylene stretch film and bubble film are the most commonly used, although corrugated cardboard sheets can also be used. These are recyclable materials, which are key to making the production process more sustainable.
Stretch film is one of the most efficient solutions for industries when packing. Some of its great advantages are:
- It allows accelerating the processes: the stretch film allows the packaging in horizontal and continuous system of stacked pallets with a high degree of fastening, without suffering any setback and in a quick and simple way.
- It is very economical: by not requiring heat for adjustment, this type of packaging produces great energy savings.
- Great versatility: stretch film packaging allows you to pack a wide range of products, such as large and small furniture, doors, windows, stacked sheets, textiles and polyethylene, and many more.
Heat shrink film is one used by machines with heat. It is a transparent polyethylene film that, when heated, shrinks and offers an optimal and long-lasting fit. In addition, it allows you to visualize the product inside, making it ideal for the end customer.
Bubble film and corrugated cardboard sheets are often used as a complement to cling film, to increase the degree of protection. They are usually used in products that have a certain fragility, or those that will be transported in certain conditions that require greater protection.
This type of solution works by subjecting packaging materials, in this case retractable polyethylene, to heat, with the aim that it contracts and adapts to the product. In this way, it provides greater support and offers greater protection to the products, against dust, water and other factors that can damage them.
In addition, thanks to the adjustment offered by this type of machine, a better aesthetic finish of the packaging is achieved, and it is even possible to visualize the product inside. For this reason, heat packaging is the most recommended for the end customer.
It is also because of the type of adjustment offered by the film when it comes into contact with heat, that these machines are the most recommended for those cases in which pieces with irregular shapes are packed.
At CMB, we produce cold and hot packaging machines. Cold packaging, also known as “bandaged packaging”, is one that uses stretchable polyethylene, which is a material that stretches with cold and shrinks without the need for heat. On the other hand, heat packaging uses shrink polyethylene, which is a film that, when temperature is applied, adapts to the shape of the product.
Their main differences are:
- While both use polyethylene film, one packs by bandaging, while the other does so by shrinking the material through the application of heat.
- Heat packaging lasts longer than cold packaging.
- Cold packaging uses less energy
- Heat packaging supports products with morphologies with greater variations.
- Cold packaging supports the use of bubble film.
Because of these differences is that not all industries can make use of the same machines. This will depend on a series of issues, such as how fragile the product is, its shape and dimensions and how it will be transported, among others.
