Stretch Wrapping Bottles

A Handle It machine for stretch wrapping bottles is more efficient and safer than manually wrapping by hand.

Stretch wrapping pallets of bottles by hand often leads to damage and worker injuries caused by repetitive motion. All it takes is one poor hand wrap to send the contents of a pallet crashing down to the floor. Fully and semi-automatic stretch wrappers from Handle It will help you wrap a wide range of bottles and similar products, such as:

  • Shrink packs
  • Open top milk crates
  • Boxes
  • Empty milk jugs

Handle It stretch wrapping machines come standard with the following features:

  • User-friendly control panel
  • 250% power pre-stretch (lower film costs by up to 60%)
  • Remote control (1100AA-C)
  • Auto film attach, hot weld film seal, and auto film cut
  • Storage of up to 32 end-user programs
  • Wrap up to 300 loads per day

Pro Tips

There are several Pro Tips that will help you optimize wrapping wire spools and unstable loads for transport.

  • 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 edges on the product, try lower film tension and rotation speed or consider a thicker, more puncture-resistant film.
  • If you have an outlier product 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.
  • If you have empty spaces or voids, try either increasing the flanging time or adjusting the fixed height setting available on the Model 1100
  • Use a roping device and set reinforcement extra height to lock in.
  • Variable tension allows the wrapper to start with lower tension at bottom of the pallet to put a layer of film over the sharp edges. Then increase tension on the way down to secure the load.
