Stretch Wrap is a thick strong stretchy plastic that is commonly wrapped around palletized loads or heavy bulk items like 55 gallon drums. Stretch wrap is commonly applied at the end of the packaging process by a semi-automatic pallet wrapper or fully automatic stretch wrap machine before the products are shipped on to their final destination. Its primary purpose is to keep products from shifting during transport. Stretch wrap does not shrink and is not affected by heat guns or shrink tunnels.
Pallet wrap machines use stretch film, a highly stretchable plastic film that is wrapped around items. The elastic recovery keeps the items tightly bound. It is frequently used to unitize pallet loads but also may be used for bundling smaller items.Types of stretch film include bundling stretch film, hand stretch film, extended core stretch film, machine stretch film and static dissipative film.
Many films have about 500% stretch at break but are only stretched to about 100 _€ 300% in use. Once stretched, the elastic recovery is used to keep the load tight. Other properties such as break strength, cling, clarity, tear resistance, static discharge, etc. are also important.
In pallet unitizing, stretch wrap can have several functions:
improved stability of products or packages, forming a unit load
more efficient handling and storage of unit loads
some degree of dust and moisture protection
some degree of tamper resistance and resistance to package pilferage
Making sure cartons stay on the pallet is an important consideration in warehouse distribution, especially as the demands for increased throughput continues to rise. Stretch wrapping is the most cost-effective way to keep loads secured, on a pallet.
Manual stretch film dispensers are great because of their ease of use, a built in braking system and the ability to secure loads more tightly. Our hand wrapper stretch tool section features the tried and true J-Type hand film dispenser and a different kind of tool to apply film to a pallet - the Pole Wrapper.
If your business wraps more than 15 loads per day, an automated machine may be right for you. There are several factors you should consider when deciding on what machine to buy including the number of loads are you currently wrapping and how much future growth you anticipate reaching, what types of loads will you wrap, will the loads all be boxes, irregular shapes, fragile, etc. You will also want to consider load weight, stability and whether you need a pallet wrapper with a scale.
Turntable Stretch Wrap Machines are one of the most common forms of stretch wrap machines. They are designed to be used with a forklift and/or motorized or manual pallet jack. Semi-automatic turntable machines are good for less than 30 loads an hour.
Fully automatic machines are used in conjunction with conveyors and are best suited for warehouses wrapping hundreds or thousands of pallets per day. Straddle or overhead spiral stretch wrappers feature a rotating arm that moves the film around the load. These machines are commonly used for light, fragile, unstable loads and pallets that are too heavy for turntable machines.Horizontal stretch wrap machine these machines use a rotating film carriage that moves around a load as it passes through a horizontal ring.
Horizontal machines are typically used for wrapping carpet, molding, windows and doors and other products that are better wrapped horizontally.
