The stretch wrapper or pallet wrapper is a machine that uses stretchable plastic film to keep products in place for shipping on pallets. The stretch film is wrapped around items and keeps them tightly bound for stability. It is useful for creating stable pallet units for transportation purposes and provides protection. As such it is used at the end of the production line.
How does a stretch wrapper work?
Although all stretch wrapping machines have the final result of a pallet load wrapped in stretch film, the method of how they achieve this depends on the type of the stretch wrapper.
Rotating table or turntable stretch wrappers
With the turntable the pallet is placed on table that rotates while a film delivery system dispenses the stretch film around the batch. The film application starts generally at the bottom of the pallet, goes up to its top, and then down again to the bottom. The rotating table stretch wrapper is the most used type of stretch wrapper and can be set up for many types of applications.
Rotary Arm or Rotating Arm Pallet Wrappers
Rotating Arm Stretch Wrappers can reach wrapping speeds up to 40 loads an hour. They are especially efficient for loads that are not stable i. e. that are very heavy or light. The rotating arm moves around the pallet, applying the stretch film while the load stays in place. Like this the likelihood of the load falling over during wrapping is reduced to a minimum.
