New from Premier Tech ChronosIndustrial Equipment Group located in Rivière-du-Loup, Que., comes the LH-400 Stretch Hooder.

Designed as an efficient, fully automatic load securing systems designed to produce secured, weather-protected pallet loads, the LH-400 enables safe outdoor storage.

The film hood used exerts vertical and horizontal tension on the load, gently pressing it down onto the pallet, which considerably improves the packaging quality of unstable or heavy loads.

With capacities of up to 110 loads per hour, the LH-400 Stretch Hooder can produce between 500 and 700 pallets with a single roll of film—less frequent film replacements mean reduced down times and increased productivity.

It works equally well with regular pallets or mixed-load pallets, its main movements are fully electrical meaning no need for hydraulic maintenance such as oil changes, air bleeding, leak repairs, etc..

Premier Tech notes that installation of the machine is quick, with minimal on-site wiring and assembling.

Entirely designed, engineered, manufactured and serviced in North America, the LH-400 is robust, durable and built in accordance with North American standards.
