To give film special characteristics, e.g. tear strength or shrink properties, the films are machined on film stretching machines. The machined films are used for packaging and in technical areas of application, for example. Hundreds of carriages are arranged one behind the other in film stretching machines. These carriages are known as grippers and are used for gripping and clamping the film.
