Semi-automatic or turntable type stretch wrapping or pallet wrapping machines as they are also known can be the first rung on the ladder away from manually shrink or stretch wrapping palletised loads. A Pallet is placed on the wrapping machines turntable, by a hand or forklift truck,then the stretch wrapping film is attached and the operator presses the start button. The turntable then rotates the load and the mast raises and lowers the film carriage, wrapping the load on to the pallet.
These relatively simple pallet wrappers such as the MSW Mobile Pallet Wrapper are the logical step up from hand wrapping pallets and can give benefits that do not come with more automated systems.The operator walks around the load whilst raising the film carrier thus giving the option to wrap odd and uneven shape loads.Our manual pallet wrappers can be taken to the load thus saving time and also require minimal space to wrap a pallet. One of the main advantages of pallet wrappers is the reduced stress placed upon operatives due to the reduced bending required when compared to wrapping a pallet by hand.
