The Containment Force Awakens Part 2

 Welcome back to our saga on Containment Force…

We left off with this important question: How will you know whether or not the standards you’ve set using Stretch Tools’ recommendations are being adhered to or not?

Much like secret plans exposing faulty exhaust vents, the HiLIFE System will give you A New Hope when it comes to knowing about system performance, as well as measuring the parameters that make a difference in the safety and economics of your loads, including Applied Stretch, which is the most accurate way to determine your Containment Force. Forget what you thought you know about measuring pre-stretch only.

As a famous Jedi Packaging Master once said:

As the Packaging Masters know, measuring pre-stretch only doesn’t factor in relaxation, post stretch, or slippage. Applied Stretch, as measured with HiLIFE, is the only way to ensure accuracy in your wrapping.

You’ve now completed your training – you’ve learned to utilize the wisdom from Stretch Tools to provide you with your Containment Force. You’ve acquired your weapon, the tool you’ll use to combat poor containment by data acquisition, and you’ve been guided under the Master, HiLIFE, to monitor performance and maintain your standards.

You are no longer a Packaging Padawan, but a Packaging Master.

With these components working in harmony, you will ensure the balance of Containment Force, and ultimately the reduction in damage, and the savings on film.

The Dark Side of Packaging – damaged product, wasted time, wasted money – will not prevail so long as you stay at the ready with your knowledge, and there will be peace in the galaxy warehouse.

The Containment Force Awakens, Part 1

star wars highlight intro
The need for the Force has been reawakened….

All too often, Containment Force is either looked over as unimportant, or the Force is not properly balanced or calculated, and load failures occur.

CONTAINMENT is KEY. Accuracy and repeatability is required when determining it, but how are you supposed to know what is right for your loads, and how are you supposed to achieve a balanced Force and reduced damage?

Balanced Force
Manual systems rely on operators to perform tests and determine Containment, but operators can influence tests, either purposefully or accidentally.

Highlight has the solution: our line of film testing equipment, along with the technology in our Stretch Tools App, will help you Master the Force and get you well on your way to proper load Containment, damage reduction, and film savings.

Starting with the Stretch Tools App, the inner strength of Highlight’s packaging knowledge. You could say that the knowledge from Stretch Tools is what allows us to be one with the Containment Force….

Stretch Tools contains powerful and easy to use tools based on over 30 years of research and experience. With the power at your fingertips, you can calculate the proper Containment Force for individual styles of loads, and determine how much film will be used on that load, the cost to wrap, and much more.

The most effective and efficient way to understand containment is to understand how the film’s forces are applied to your load. You’re still a padawan learner, but even padawans need weapons.

Highlight’s Portable Film Force System is your lightsaber; portable and wieldable, the PFFS will take operator influence out of the equation, providing you with real time data on Containment Force as well as puncture resistance on your wrapped loads. It can, and should go with you everywhere you go. The PFFS is the best tool to collect data on your loads, and ultimately combat poor Containment.

But how can you ensure that even after you measure your load’s Containment, your machine keeps up with the standards set and tested, day after day, year after year?
