It can also eliminates damage from dropped rolls as often occurs with conventional hand films. Plus, you lower your overhead costs.
If you focus on machine stretch film, how do you know which is the best value? Most customers revert to the price per roll. Does that work or not in making your selection? Is that wrong? No, it just may not be giving you the “whole” story.
