Pallet Wrapper Applications
Handle It pallet wrappers help improve the efficiency of your packaging operations while reducing labor costs. Handle It has a fully automatic, semi-automatic or mobile robotic pallet wrapper for your application, no matter your industry or niche. It’s important to understand how your volume and type of wrapping required will impact which machine and budget are needed for your specific application.
Boxes - All Sizes
No matter the size or shape of the box, a fully or semi-automatic pallet wrapper from Handle It can securely wrap it.
Bags & Sacks
Keep your bales of bags and sacks secure and tight with the power pre-stretch features.
Barrels, Drums & Pails
Barrels and drums often contain liquids and other materials that can easily shift the balance of weight when in transit. A pallet wrapping machine with a roping device helps ensure a secure wrap.
Bottles can come crashing to the ground if the pallet slightly shifts its center of balance when in transit. Wrapping the pallets helps ensure a tight and secure wrap that prevents this domino-like effect from occurring
Wrapping your electrical cabinets properly will help ensure a secure load while preventing moisture from damaging sensitive electrical components.
Plastic components are prone to shipping damage resulting from an improperly wrapped pallet. With a Handle It pallet wrapper, you can adjust the wrap parameters to ensure proper tension and a secure load.
Construction and Industrial Related Products and Parts
Keeping your steel castings free from defects doesn’t stop at the casting and QA processes—a properly shrink-wrapped pallet can help prevent dings, scratches, and damage during transport.
Despite its strength, pre-cast concrete is highly susceptible to chips and cracks. Wrap the pallet securely with a Handle It stretch wrapper to prevent damage from occurring.
Dark/black-colored products (tires, black powder-coated products)
If you need to wrap dark or black-colored products, such as tires or black powder-coated pieces, you may need to upgrade the photosensor of your pallet wrapper so that it can properly “see” the load.
Fabricated Metal Parts
Maximizing load containment is critical to shipping fabricated parts. A fully or semi-automatic pallet wrapper from Handle It will securely and consistently wrap pallets of fabricated metal parts.
Replacement parts come in many different sizes and shapes—A pallet wrapper from Handle It will help ensure a consistent and secure wrap regardless of box or item shape.
Spools of wire can become a deadly and dangerous hazard if they fall off the pallet during transport. Wrapping pallets of wire spools will help keep them securely on the pallet.
Large, Unstable and Sensitive Materials
A mobile wrapping machine can drive around the pallet putting no limits on pallet size. Options on turntable style machines include a larger turntable and an extended frame giving you more clearance to wrap larger pallets.
A rotary arm pallet wrapper or top press plate on a turntable will help stabilize the load for wrapping.
Sensitive and Information Storage Materials
Keep prying eyes away from sensitive information such as papers, banker’s boxes, and digital media with a secure shrink wrap. You can also use black film to mask the contents of the pallet.
Applications that Require a More Custom Solution
The applications below require more engineering to determine the appropriate machine and accessories to enable an effective wrapping solution.
Cold Transport and Storage
Insulated pallet covers alone are not enough to keep pharmaceuticals and other perishable products at a safe temperature when in transit. A pallet wrapper will help ensure a safe and secure wrap every single time.
Transporting Food That Requires Cooling
Wrapping pallets of perishable foodstuffs helps keep them cool while lowering the moisture content levels. You can slit the stretch wrap in key areas to improve airflow further or use a special ventilated film.
Doors & Windows
Doors and windows are highly susceptible to scratches when in transport. Wrap your pallets securely with a fully or semi-automatic pallet wrapper and prevent in-transit damage from occurring. You can also add a special clamp that stabilizes the doors, so they don’t topple over.
