What is a Stretch Wrapper?
A stretch wrapper is a high-performance automatic or semi-automatic machine that uses a large turntable to rotate loaded pallets while they are tightly and securely packaged with a plastic film for a more efficient shipment.
The turntable has a heavy weight capacity and rotates as an adjustable plastic film roll quickly packages the load, saving a boatload of packaging time and providing extra protection for your product. The Synergy® models are specifically designed to have a longer film stretch limit as well as a higher wrap height limit.
With a control panel that is more simplistic than you could ever imagine, stretch wrappers are easy for anyone to use. Just one push of a button is all it takes to adjust the level of the film stretch length and height to match the size of the loading equipment, and another button to start the machine. These machines will last nearly a lifetime, making it that much more cost-effective for your company.
Industries that use stretch wrappers include:
- Food and Beverage
- Pharmaceutical/ Health product
- Medical Supplies
- …Any industry that puts product on pallets to ship!
Why are Stretch Wrappers Important?
- Saves time (and money!)
- Makes shipment more tamper resistant
- Unitizes pallet loads for better organization
- Extra dust, moisture, and UV protection
- Most secure way of shipping (less product damage)
- Reduces stress and work-related injury
