Pallet Wrapper

At the heart of a secure packaging process lies the intricate balance of using the right machinery with expertly manufactured materials. Pallet wrapping, a critical step in ensuring the safety of goods during transit, is no exception. It’s also possible to reduce wastage as the machine can be programmed and fine-tuned to wrap efficiently and consistently. Pallet Wrapper Machinery can also make a safer workplace as manual wrapping can be very labour intensive.

What do you wrap pallets with?

Pallets are primarily wrapped using a specialized film known as stretch wrap or stretch film. This plastic film is both elastic and robust, capable of holding products firmly in place on a pallet. The types of stretch wrap include:

  • Cast Stretch Wrap: It's clear, allows easy scanning through barcodes, and is noiseless during unwinding.
  • Blown Stretch Wrap: Offers higher load and stretch capacity, ideal for heavier goods.
  • Hand Stretch Wrap: Best for manual wrapping of smaller loads.
  • Machine Stretch Wrap: Designed specifically for use with machine pallet wrappers, ensuring uniform application and optimized protection.

Apart from stretch wrap, there are other products like shrink wrap, which, when heated, shrinks to snugly fit around the product. However, for pallets, stretch wrap remains the popular choice given its flexibility and strength.

What are the benefits of using a machine pallet wrapper?

Using a machine pallet wrapper, as opposed to manual wrapping, presents a plethora of advantages:

  • Consistency: Uniform tension ensures that all your pallets are wrapped with the same level of tightness, minimizing the risk of product damage.
  • Efficiency: Speed up the wrapping process, allowing for more pallets to be prepared in less time.
  • Cost-Effective: By automating the wrapping process, you save on labour costs and also optimize the usage of wrap, reducing waste.
  • Safety: Manual wrapping, especially of heavier loads, can lead to workplace injuries. Machine wrappers ensure operator safety and also protect the goods from potential damage during transit.

What is the best way to wrap a pallet?

To wrap a pallet effectively:

  • Start at the Base: Begin wrapping at the base of the pallet, ensuring the wrap is slightly underneath it. This secures the load to the pallet.
  • Overlap: As you move upwards, overlap the stretch wrap by about 30% to ensure thorough coverage.
  • Secure the Top: Once at the top, wrap across the top products, then work your way down to lock everything in place.
  • Optimize Tension: If using a machine wrapper, adjust the tension to ensure a snug fit without over-stretching.

A properly wrapped pallet will ensure minimal movement of goods, protecting them from potential damage due to shifting during transportation.

How do I choose the right pallet wrapper for my business?

The choice of a pallet wrapper is influenced by:

  • Volume: The number of pallets you need to wrap daily. High-volume businesses may benefit from automated systems.
  • Load Size & Weight: Different wrappers handle different sizes and weights. Ensure your choice can handle your typical load.
  • Budget: From basic models to advanced wrappers with automated features, there's a machine for every budget.
  • Space: Ensure you have adequate space in your warehouse for the machinery and its operation.
