The company approached Atlanta UK with a request to cocoon stretch-wrapped paper reels from a new reel winding process at their Burneside site. The objective was to handle various reel lengths up to 2,500mm, reel diameters up to 1,500mm, and weights up to 3,500kgs at rates of up to 22 reels per hour. As the product is often exported, the cocoon wrap process had to fully enclose the reels to create a secure, protective and completely dust and waterproof wrap.
