Stretch wrapping, also referred to as pallet wrapping, is the process of using stretchable plastic film to secure products firmly in place for shipping on pallets. Getting the right stretch wrap machine for your operation is critical to guarantee proper load control, packaging throughput and stretch film consumption rates. At Crawford Packaging, we find the right stretch wrap machines tailored to your operation’s needs to ensure your packaging solutions run quickly and efficiently.
Turntable Stretch Wrapper
Turntable Stretch Wrapping machines use a rotating platform to turn your pallet in place. A mechanical arm applies the stretch film ensuring an even application. Turntable Stretch Wrappers are available in automatic and semi-automatic formats.
Rotary Arm Stretch Wrapper
Rotary Arm Stretch Wrap Machines keep your load stationary while a mechanical arm rotates around the load. This method is optimal for tall or oddly weighted loads that have a risk of collapse. Rotary Arm Stretch Wrappers are available in automatic and semi-automatic formats.
Orbital Horizontal Ring Stretch Wrapper
Orbital Stretch Wrapping Machines, also known as Horizontal Stretch Wrapping Machines are for stretch wrapping long, wide loads. Utilizing a moving conveyor to move the load through the stretch wrapping machine. A rotating ring circles the load applying a consistent wrap across the entire load.
Top 3 Benefits of Stretch Wrap Machines
Prevent Costly Damages
Securing your products in place with proper load controls reduces costly shifts and falls during transport. Stretch wrapping machines help you to keep consistent restraint pressure on your pallet, minimizing the risk of product damage and reducing unsaleables.
Increased Efficiency and Throughput
Pallet wrapping equipment is available in multiple types and sizes, each specifically engineered to match the needs of specific packaging requirements. Available in automatic, semi-automatic and manual formats, stretch wrappers can improve your packing times by eliminating the need to wrap pallets by hand.
Improved Health and Safety
When volumes increase, hand wrapping pallets can lead to serious health and safety issues for employees. The addition of stretch wrapping equipment can help decrease these health and safety risks by eliminating the cuts and bumps that can occur when volumes become too large for employees to keep up with by hand.
