Investing in new equipment will save you money on pallet stretch packaging, as well, so you’ll experience less waste.
Automatic vs. Semi Automatic Stretch Wrap Machines
A semi automatic pallet wrapping machine will require the assistance of an operator to start the pallet wrapping process, to attach stretch machine wrap film at the wrapping, and cut the wrap at the end of the cycle. There are a few advantages to having a human operator overseeing the stretch wrap cycle of production, not least of which involves being able to customize load containment per pallet. For low output volume applications, a semi automatic stretch wrap machine is ideal.
For higher volume production, fully automatic pallet wrappers are a better option, especially at warehouses that operate at high speeds and see a high volume of product going through the line day after day. With no human intervention necessary, these machines can handle, maneuver, and wrap the load throughout the cycle, from start to finish. Benefits of investing in a fully automatic pallet wrap machine are obvious- lower labor costs at your distribution center. You can expect a high level of consistency from a machine such as this.
Determining Your Pallet Wrap Machine Needs
By answering a few simple questions, you can determine on your own which type of equipment will best serve your workplace. If you answer ‘yes’ to any of the following questions, you might consider a fully automatic machine:
- Does your company employ full-time forklift operators?
- Do you notice employees with idle time while pallets are being wrapped?
- Are you experiencing delays in outbound shipments due to an inability to wrap pallets on time?
- Are you seeing a high volume of film waste due to human error or outdated equipment?
