Pallet Wrapping

Pallet Wrapping using Stretchwrap (Pallet Wrap) Film, has long been recognised as one of the best methods of securing a load to a pallet. Pallet Wrapping with Stretchwrap (Pallet Wrap) Film reduces the risk of a palletised load getting damaged in transit. Pallet Wrapping diminishes the risk of returns. A load is placed on a pallet, and then Stretchwrap (Pallet Wrap) Film is wrapped around the load and the pallet, thus securing the load to the pallet. Pallet Wrapping keeps the pallet stable in transit by preventing the load from slipping or moving when it is being moved by a fork lift or pump truck, and ensures that the palletised load arrives in perfect condition, safe and secure. The risk of theft or partial theft of products in transit is also greatly reduced. Pallet Wrapping with Stretchwrap (Pallet Wrap) Film also gives added protection from the weather, and the protective covering on the palletised load minimises the risk of damage from other pallets whilst in transit.

Pallet Wrappers

Pallet Wrappers wrap pallets quicker. Pallet Wrappers save you time and increase throughput. Pallet Wrappers use significantly less film and ensure a consistent wrap quality. Operators do not have to judge the amount of Stretchwrap to be applied according to the load being wrapped. Pallet Wrappers markedly reduce health & safety concerns. By using less film, Pallet Wrappers reduce waste, considerably. Demonstrations show that using Pallet Wrappers reduces the time and materials to wrap a pallet. Pallet Wrapper Cost savings of over 30% are regularly achieved. A recent Loveshaw Pallet Wrapper installation in a factory with a 2 shift 6 day week working pattern, achieved a saving approaching 50k per yr.

Q6. What's the payback from a pallet wrapper?

Aside from the health & safety aspect, pallet wrappers save time & money. They save time from increased throughput. They SAVE money by :

  • Improved load stability, reducing potential damage in transit and therefore the need to replace damaged product and re-ship.
  • Material Saving, a power pre-stretch pallet wrapper will stretch 1m of film to 3m. Saving material.

In addition, using a pallet wrapper ensures a consistent wrap. The pallet wrapper can be pre-programmed with particular pallet wrap cycle for different loads. Thus ensuring the same load is always wrapped the same way. The wrap sequence does not depend on the person wrapping to make the decision on the number of wraps 'just to be sure the load is secure'.

Using a core-brake wrapper? You may save money by moving to power pre-stretch. If you use power pre-stretch wrapper, does it stretch the film as much as you think it does. Is reliability an issue, what about spares, what about health & safety rules?
