Here are several Pro Tips that will help you properly wrap oversized pallets for transport:
- Unsure where to start? Consider using an initial cycle with 2-3 top and bottom rotations and a 50% film tension for an average pallet load.
- Slower speeds and less tension are ideal for dialing in and optimizing load containment and cycle time.
- For sharp edges, try lowering rotation speed and film tension. You can also use a more puncture-resistant and thicker film to prevent rips and tears.
- For pallets with outlier products at the top, try increasing the “flanging” or overwrap delay time and top rotations to ensure you get a high enough film band to catch the top layer.
