An effective pallet-wrapping-machine is an essential part of any well-designed warehouse workspace.
Along with a well-thought-out warehouse management system and an efficiency-boosting pallet racking system, pallet wrappers (often referred to as stretch wrappers or stretch wrapping machines) are the best way to keep your products safe, dry, and organized.
Without stretch wrap machines, pallets can be subject to unnecessary wear and tear. By including a stretch wrap machine in your warehouse, you can prevent damage to products by eliminating the shifting and toppling that often accompanies the transportation of goods not properly secured with stretch film.
At The Material Handler we offer a variety of top-quality stretch wrap machines, supplied by Fox Packaging Services.
Take Your Pick
Before choosing a stretch wrapper for your warehouse, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of each stretch wrapping system. Choosing the appropriate stretch wrap machine will depend on the size of your warehouse, the amount of product you carry, and the amount of available space you have to work with.
The three varieties of pallet wrapping system we offer are:
Turntable Stretch Wrappers
Turntable stretch wrappers are designed to work in conjunction with forklifts and pallet jacks.
Turntable stretch wrap machines are built with welded steel and consist of a circular table that rotates in unison with the stretch film roll, which is itself attached to a vertical post. The stretch film moves up and down on the post as the pallet is rotated slowly on the turntable. The stretch film is fed by a brake system which determines the tightness at which the film will be applied.
This product is offered in a variety of versions. These include a manual stretch wrap version, a semi-automatic stretch wrap version, a portable automatic stretch wrap version, and inline automatic stretch wrapping version. There are several add-ons available for the turntable wrap machine, including a base extension, a loading ramp, an integrated scale, a ramp extension, safety curtains, safety fencing, and the option to create a custom design.
Rotary Arm Stretch Wrappers
A rotary arm pallet wrapper is best suited for heavy or unstable loads. The machine consists of a large steel frame with a welded mechanical steel arm that applies stretch film around your pallets, wrapping them while they are stationary on the floor. Rotary arms wrap machines are known for their speed, and can process up to 40 loads per hour.
The Material Handler offers a variety of rotary arm stretch wrap machines, including semi-automatic, portable, and inline automatic pallet wrapping machines. Automatic versions require no intervention by the operator, whereas manual and semi-automatic wrap machines require a supervising operator to cut and stretch the film.
All of our products are designed with an unlimited weight capacity, and can include safety fencing, light safety curtains, a three-leg gantry, and conveyors. Our stretch wrap machines can be made in custom sizes, with varying height, width, and frame sizes to best suit your warehouse needs.
Orbital (Ring) Stretch Wrap Machines
Orbital (ring) stretch wrap machines are effective for wrapping oversized or oddly-shaped items such as long planks or tubing. These systems apply stretched film from a vertical rotating ring, require no manual labor, and operate in caged machines, which reduces the potential for human error and/or employee injury.
The Material Handler offers three orbital stretch wrap machines: manual stretch machines, semi automatic stretch machines, and fully automatic stretch wrap machines. All units consist of a precision steel ring, friction carriage, and can be used to wrap items on or off of the pallet.
Orbital wrappers can be customized by adding product hold-down rollers, in-feed or out-efeed conveyors, film roping, or pre-stretch carriage.
Protect Your Pallets and Your Packaging
Combining our pallet wrapping machines with an effective pallet racking system and warehouse management system is one of the best ways you can streamline your production process, save yourself money on stretch film costs, prevent unnecessary loss or damage to products under your care, all while dramatically improving workplace safety.
Whether you choose a turntable wrapper, a rotary arm wrapper or an orbital wrapper machine, you’ll be able to safely and efficiently wrap products in a fraction of the time it would take to do manually.
