Automatic stretch wrappers can take your packaging or shipping department to the next level with many practical and time-saving features. Power pre-stretch, auto film weld, and full remote control can help improve productivity while providing a consistent and safe wrap.
At Handle It, we’re often asked what’s the difference between our model 1100 AA-C fully automatic stretch wrapper and the Cousins A-ARM. Read on for a side-by-side comparison of the Handle It 1100 AA-C vs. Cousins A-ARM and learn more about the similarities and differences between the two models.
The 1100 AA-C is a top-of-the-line automatic pallet wrapper that allows forklift drivers to remain in their seats and utilize the included remote control to start and stop a pallet wrap cycle. This translates to increased efficiency and decreased labor required to wrap pallets.
The model 1100 AA-C will have your facility wrapping up to 300 pallets per day. It comes standard with the following features:
When it comes to wrapping a large number of pallets daily, speed, accuracy, and efficiency are critical. You can easily adjust many parameters on the Model 1100 AA-C, such as bottom wraps, starting wrap height, top wraps, film tension, carriage descent, and ascent speeds. You’ll also be able to store 32 end-user programs to increase productivity further.
Several key differences set the Model 1100 AA-C apart from the competition. The rack-and-pinion carriage drive system increases reliability and decrease downtime. Heavy-duty carriage rollers and self-lubricating turntable bearings translate to years of trouble-free service.
The Cousins LP-SWA A-ARM only has a 1/2hp turntable drive motor while the Handle It Model 1100 AA-C comes standard with a 3/4 horsepower TEFC turntable drive motor.
The Model 1100 AA-C comes standard with a roped bare tail treatment, while the A-ARM model only offers it as an add-on feature.
The Cousins LP-SWA A-ARM automatic pallet wrapper can wrap around 35 loads per hour (depending on several factors such as load size, number of wraps, and forklift operator skill). It offers a 33% to 313% fixed stretch capability, side-mounted film carriage, and ANSI # 50 direct chain drive c/w chain tensioner.
The treatment of the tail end of the shrink wrap can help add several extra layers of security.
