How Can Pallet Wrappers Benefit Your Packaging Business
Anyone who works in a warehouse is familiar with the transportation of bulk goods. Often, these shipments are being moved on pallets to their next destination. While this is an efficient way to send large quantities of goods to their next destination, care must still be taken to ensure the safety of that product. A pallet wrapping machine will help you do just that. This equipment is a way to protect and control your goods and provide safe transportation in a cost effective manner.
What are the benefits of a pallet wrapping machine?
As mentioned earlier, stretch wrappers are devices that are used to wrap pallets of goods and help prepare them for shipping. They provide great security for the product during transport. The stretch wrap film wrapped around the pallet load helps to protect the box and the goods inside from any elements that may be encountered during the shipping process. Wrapping the product also helps to keep the box in one place during the journey to the next destination. By wrapping your pallet load, it provides security and stability for both the box and the goods during transit.
Another benefit of pallet wrapping machines is that it saves your workers' time. Before the advent of automated pallet wrapping machines, workers had to do this work manually. While workers were still performing quality work, they were not able to pack goods as tightly or as quickly as automated and semi-automated stretch wrappers. Using a machine-operated pallet wrapper not only reduces the amount of stretch wrap film you need to use, but it also reduces the number of repetitive workplace injuries workers suffer.
What material does a pallet wrapper use?
Pallet wrappers use a material called stretch wrap, which is then wrapped around boxes that are stacked on pallets. Stretch wrapping is equivalent to Saran Wrap or shrink wrapping. This would be a good way to describe it to the uninitiated, but it doesn't do stretch wrap justice. Stretch wrap is a highly stretchable plastic film made of low density polyethylene. It has an unparalleled elasticity. This elasticity allows it to maneuver so easily around the goods, which is why it can hold items together so tightly.
What types of pallet wrappers are available?
As mentioned earlier, pallet loads can be wrapped by hand. However, this method is not the most efficient. You may use more wraps than necessary and your workers may suffer repetitive stress injuries. In addition, the machine will move more quickly than it would by hand. There are several types of stretch wrappers and they fall into two main categories: semi-automatic or fully automatic. Fully automatic machines have more bells and whistles than semi-automatic stretch wrappers.
