If you are in the packaging business, you know about the industrial stretch wrapper or strapper at the end of the packaging line. These are two most common types of equipment that are ideal for saving time during the end of the line packaging process. With this equipment, you can increase productivity, efficiency, and ensure that the integrity of the load is secured to the pallet and reduce damage during transit.
Stretch wrappers, also known as ‘turntable stretch wrappers,’ are automatic and semi-automatic industrial equipment for stretch wrapping. Stretch wrap protects the load from environmental damage. Water and sunlight can damage products during their shipping journey, and stretch wrap acts as a physical barrier. In this same vein, stretch wrap protects from casual damage like scuffing. Stretch wrap also protects a load from damage during shipping in bigger ways. The process of transporting goods from one location to another is fraught with opportunities for damage; for example, trucks bounce over roads, pallets are stacked high and can fall, products are jostled, etc.
On the other hand, strappers are used to secure a load while allowing for breathability, or to lessen the use of plastic to ensure they are properly closed or contained. Strappers can be combined with stretch wrappers to band a load to a pallet. This equipment can be hand-operated, semi-automatic, and fully automatic. Additionally, they can use different materials for strapping, including metal, plastic, or polyester.
Legacy Packaging offers a variety of stretch wrappers and strappers for various packaging needs. Our equipment is designed to save you time, avoid wastage, and improve productivity. These are low-maintenance equipment that comes in different series. Keep reading to learn more about our top picks and which ones would be best for your needs.
