Alexandria, MN - Orion Packaging, powered by ProMach, will be introducing at Pack Expo 2014, November 2-5 in Chicago the InstaThread-S powered prestretch film delivery system. This film carriage will be available optionally on most Orion models and is the first S pattern prestretch stretch film carriage with “drop in” film threading for safe and easy film roll change overs. (Orion Packaging Pack Expo Booth N-5431)

The S pattern routes the film around the front of the first prestretch roller, then around the back of the second prestretch roller dramatically reducing the distance between rollers where the film is actually stretched. This allows for reduced neckdown (width reduction) and the ability to use one sided cling films with the cling side against both the prestretch rollers and the load. The new InstaThread S will come standard with 260% prestretch with higher or lower rates available optionally.
