Stretch Wrapping Pick and Pack Mixed Products on Pallets

A semi-automatic pallet wrapping machine from Handle It will provide a safe, secure, and consistent wrap. With the ability to wrap up to 300 loads per day, you’ll save time and money while preventing worker’s comp claims due to workers suffering from repetitive motion injuries.

Here are several Pro Tips that will help you properly stretch wrap mixed pick and pack products on pallets:
- A great starting point is a cycle with 2-3 top and bottom rotations with a film tension of around 50% for average pallet loads.
- On initial setup, try slower speeds and less tension, and work your way up to optimize cycle time and load containment.
- If you have sharp product edges, try lower film tension and rotation speed or consider a thicker, more puncture-resistant film.
- For outlier products at the top, try increasing the overwrap delay or “flanging” time along with top rotations to make sure you get the film band high enough to catch the top layer. This can be especially helpful with pick and pack operations when the top of the pallet might have a few boxes in the center of the stack.
- If you have empty spaces or voids, try either increasing the flanging time or trying the fixed height setting available on the model 1100.
