If you regularly work with pallets in your business, you should know what a pallet wrapper is, and the usefulness you could give it.
A pallet wrapping machine is a machine specially designed to quickly and efficiently wrap or wrap a pallet. Being wrapped, the pallet can be transported and stored safely and compactly, and that is why this technique is very common in the transport of goods.
Pallet wrappers, also known as pallet wrappers, are used in a wide variety of industries: food, construction, chemical, textile, etc. Depending on the size of the pallet and the complexity of its wrapping process, we can see wrapping machines of different types.
There are different ways on the market to wrap pallets using a baler, but the most common is to use film. It is a very flexible, resistant and economical material to wrap the goods to be transported and ensure the integrity of the pallet during the entire transport process.
Depending on the machine used, the wrapping process is done differently. There are machines that keep the pallet fixed while a moving element of it, such as a robotic arm, performs the wrapping process. On the other hand, there are machines that move the goods, through a rotating plate, for example, to apply the film and wrap the pallet.
In the market we can find different types of wrapping machines, each of them designed to adapt to a specific production needs. Some of the most common types are:
They are the most basic and economical. They are mainly used in small companies, or in processes where the wrapping needs are very low volume. These balers require an operator to load and stack the pallet in the machine.
They are machines that are integrated into an industrial automation process, in which the pallet is loaded automatically into the machine, and the wrapping process is carried out without operator intervention. They are ideal when you need to baling a large number of pallets in the shortest possible time, although they are more expensive than manual balers.
Including a pallet wrapper in your end-of-line process will bring you numerous advantages, such as:
Once you have decided to implement a pallet wrapper in your packaging process, you may be overwhelmed by the number of different models and types of machines available.
