At first glance, the differences are subtle. The 1200UL looks similar to our other pallet wrapping machines, but as soon as you see it, you’ll find yourself remarking: “Wow, that is the lowest turntable I’ve ever seen.”
Indeed, it is the lowest turntable height available on the market. It measures under 3/4″ tall and comes with an ultra-slim 8″ ring ramp. This allows operators to load and unload on all three sides.
Read on to learn more about the tremendous benefits, value, and features that the 1200UL model can offer your packaging operations.
The 8″ ring ramp allows for loading on all three sides. Smoothly roll pallets on and off the turntable with minimal effort.
There are three main benefits to the ultra-low turntable design. The first is the ease of loading and unloading with manual equipment. Whether you are using hand pallet jacks or electric walk-behinds, the transition from floor to turntable is very smooth.
This is a vast improvement over the standard loading ramps that are typically five to eight feet long. These require far more physical effort to push up and you run the risk of dumping your load or running off the ramp altogether. The sheer ease of loading pallets onto the ultra-low protects against spills and increases worker safety.
The second benefit is the space savings aspect. Without the need for long loading ramps, the 1200UL occupies a much smaller footprint. When you can reduce the overall area needed for equipment, it helps save both floor space and money while improving efficiency.
The third benefit is the turntable drive system’s reliability. Typical designs are either chain drive or belt-driven. They require routine maintenance and repair over the life cycle of the machine. The 1200UL has a patented gear-driven design, which results in a smooth and reliable system that requires very little maintenance.
Handle-It brand semi-automatic stretch film wrapper machines offer tremendous value and the 1200UL includes the following features:
The 1200UL offers users many highly customizable configuration options that will enable them to adjust it to any size or height of a pallet load:
Worker safety is paramount when it comes to safely loading and unloading pallets with a forklift or hand truck. Traditional loading ramps are longer and have steeper grades. This equates to more physical effort and an increased chance of falling product.
The ultra low profile on the 1200UL turntable dramatically reduces the effort needed to load a pallet. This helps prevent the operator from losing balance and is ideal for unstable loads when using pallet jacks.
The ring ramp allows workers to safely load and unload from three sides with far less floor space required. The gentle slope of the lip greatly reduces the strain of pushing a load. This significantly lowers the chances of the product falling off the pallet. A lower profile also reduces forklift impacts and possible damage.
The Handle-It Model 1200UL provides the most value when it comes to safely and efficiently wrapping your pallets. The ultra low profile decreases the chances of spilled or damaged products, and the turntable’s patented gear-driven design means less maintenance and more uptime.
