Fully automatic stretch wrappers save time, money, and will add immense value to your high-volume shipping department. Remote control, power pre-stretch, and auto film cut are just a few of the many features that will help improve efficiencies.
At Handle It, we often get asked about the key differences between our popular Model 1100AA-C versus the Lantech Q300XT. Read on to learn more about the differences and similarities between these two automatic pallet wrappers.
The Model 1100AA-C is a top-of-the-line automatic pallet wrapper that’s ideal for wrapping up to 300 loads per day. It offers a wealth of features and benefits, such as:
The Model 1100AA-C has easily adjustable parameters such as starting wrap height, bottom wraps, top wraps, film tension, and carriage ascent & descent speed. Six working cycles helps to ensure complete shrink wrap coverage of your loads:
One of the key differences between the two models is that the Lantech Q300XT is a mechanical machine, and the timing can get worn out. The 1100AA-C instead has a rack-and-pinion drive, heavy-duty carriage rollers, and self-lubricating turntable bearings that offer improved reliability.
The Q300XT is Lantech’s high-end model offering. It can wrap 30-40 loads per hour and offers a 200% power pre-stretch and several other features that allow complete pallet wrapping automation. However, the remote control feature is optional, whereas it comes standard on the 1100AA-C.
When it comes to securely wrapping pallet loads, the tail end treatment of the wrap cycle is of utmost importance. The Handle It Model 1100AA-C has a standard roped bare tail treatment, which forms the tail end of the shrink wrap into a very strong rope and then seals it to the load. The Q300XT only offers this feature as an option.
Unlike the Model 1100AA-C, which utilizes a 110-volt outlet, the Lantech Q300XT requires 120V, 20 Amp. If your shipping area doesn’t support a 120V 20 Amp, this could require additional expensive electrical work.
