And once you find the machine you’re looking for, you'll find that our delivery and installation services are comprehensive, so you’ll never be left with half a solution.
Let’s face it: Before the development of plastic stretch wrapping machines, the responsibility of properly protecting products was far more labor-intensive — and not always as effective as material handlers would like. But now, with the manufacture of incredibly strong and versatile stretch wrap materials — like linear low-density polyethylene or LLDPE — a clear plastic film is fed through a mechanism that efficiently wraps and binds palletized loads.
Unlike shrink wrap that requires heat to bind around items tightly, stretch wrap used by pallet wrapping machines merely needs tension to tightly bind around a load. While many forms of stretch film have as much as a 500% stretch point before breaking, it typically takes only about a 100% to 300% stretch to work effectively.
Benefits of Pallet Wrapping Machines
When palletized goods are bound using the process of applying stretch wrap via pallet wrapping machines, material handlers are able to take advantage of many time and cost saving benefits, including but not limited to:
- Stability: Pallet wrapping allows for the forming of unit loads that are more stable.
- Efficiency: Wrapped pallets can be handled and stored with greater efficiency.
- Protection: Stretch wrap supplies some protection against product exposure to moisture, dust and UV sunlight.
- Security: Wrapped items are more resistant to being tampered with and/or stolen.
- Shelf life: Some items — including certain foods — maintain a longer shelf life thanks to being wrapped in stretch film.
Types of Stretch Wrap Machines
Options for stretch wrap machines typically come down to one of three types — manual, semi-automatic and automatic solutions. Your material needs will help determine which option will work best in your setting. And of course, we’re happy to advise you on which type would work best in the long run.
Manual — also known as hand — wrappers are the simplest version, often equipped with a mechanical brake and ergonomic design to save operators from undue bending and wrapping of odd-shaped loads.
Semi-automatic stretch wrapping machines — like the ones we offer from Vestil — are typically equipped with a turntable mechanism that makes moving the stretch film up and down each load a quick and efficient process.
Automatic wrappers are often much like semi-automatic solutions, except they’re typically part of a conveyor system and can operate the processes of applying film, sealing the product and cutting the film in an automated setting. Since many automatic wrappers work as part of a larger, customized solution, you’re best advised to contact us directly about this option — as well as any others you have questions about.
