Stretch Wrapper Machines
Used Stretch Wrapper Equipment
Looking for a new or used stretch wrap machine? Stretch wrapper equipment uses stretchable film that is applied by the stretch wrapper. The stretch wrapper stretches the film as it applies the stretch film up to 300% of the film’s original length. Once the film has been wrapped around the product and the force stretching the film is no longer present, the film will un-stretch or shrink back to near the film’s normal length.
The action of the film shrinking in length results in the package being held more closely together and being in a tighter package.Stretch wrapper equipment is most often used for pallets or skids of products or containers. The multiple layers of stretch film that get applied by a stretch wrapper withstand surprisingly well the rigors of shipping a skid or pallet of product.Semi-automatic stretch wrapper equipment performs all the functions of wrapping stretched film around a pallet of product except attaching the initial portion of film to the pallet and cutting the film once the pallet has been stretch wrapped.
Fully automatic stretch wrappers will automatically feed pallets of product to be stretch wrapped, wrap the pallets with stretch film, and discharge fully wrapped pallets.Determining the proper stretch wrapper equipment for an application requires knowing the maximum weight of the pallet to be wrapped, the diameter of the largest pallet to be wrapped, the maximum diameter of the pallet or skid to be wrapped, the type of product on the pallet to be wrapped, as well as understand the overall production environment in which the stretch wrapper will be utilized.
