The method of applying a plastic hood to a product allows extra stability during transport and provides protection from dust. Gordian Strapping are a leading supplier in fully automated hooding systems that can be easily integrated into production lines to enhance operational capability.
There are two types of hooding systems:
Stretch hooding applies a stretchable, gusseted plastic bag to a pack without using heat. The hood machine draws stretch film to the desired length, welds and cuts it to form the hood before it’s lowered over the pack to the desired position (often at conveyor level).
Shrink hooding involves applying a heat shrinkable bag to a pack and then shrinking it to the pack using hot air emitted from gas burners (LPG or natural gas).
