Pallet wrapping machines for stretch film

Well wrapped pallets are critical for items moving smoothly through the supply chain. Poor pallet stability can cause movement in transport issues resulting in damaged goods, rejected loads, health and safety issues and additional rectification costs. The right stretch film combined with the right pallet wrapping machine will improve your pallet stability and reduce movement in transport issues.

As market-leading pallet wrap and stretch film experts, we work closely with businesses across the UK and Europe to optimise packaging operations to ensure companies are not only using the right stretch film product, but also the right processes and pallet wrapping machinery to deliver maximum efficiency.

Why are pallet wrapping machines important?

Pallet wrapping machines are designed to make pallet wrapping quick, hassle-free and efficient. Machine wrapping can also reduce plastic usage and wastage, reduce stretch film costs and reduce labour costs. Making pallet wrapping machines more efficient, cost effective and reliable than hand wrapping.

As well as improving pallet stability, we want to help save you money, reduce plastic packaging usage and reduce your CO2 footprint. So, alongside our wide-ranging expertise in pallet wrap and stretch film, we have all the knowledge and know-how to advise you on the best pallet stretch wrapping machines for your business too.

How to choose a pallet wrapping machine

Choosing the right pallet wrapping machine will depend on the specific requirements of your business’ packaging operations. Things to consider include:

  • How many pallets you are wrapping every day?
  • Is the volume likely to increase in the future?
  • Are your pallets heavy or light?
  • How stable/unstable are your loads?
  • Are all your pallets a similar size or do they vary?
  • What are the environmental conditions of your packaging area?

From a hand held pallet wrap dispenser for low volumes, to small scale semi-automatic pallet wrappers, to fully automatic packaging lines, we offer a wide range of pallet wrapping machines to suit your needs. We can provide machine options for wrapping extra-large pallets and we have stainless-steel options for more challenging environments.

Types of pallet wrapping machine

  • Turntable – a stretch wrapping system that places a load on a turntable which rotates to dispense the wrapping film. This is ideal for light to mid weight stable loads.
  • Rotary arm– a stretch wrapping machine that uses an overhead arm which rotates around the load to apply the film. This is ideal for the high-speed wrapping of lighter fragile loads and heavier less-stable loads.
  • Stretch hood machines– stretch hood technology uses the elasticity of tubular plastic film which gets stretched and then released around the pallet load. Ideal to secure uneven or unstable loads without the need to heat the film.

Additional features like electric pre-stretching functions help to minimise film consumption, electromagnetic brakes to allow for film tension adjustments, and film dispensers for anti-dust or anti-rain coatings can also be fitted depending on the model you choose.

Regardless of the model, all of our pallet wrapping machines and pallet shrink wrap machines allow you to wrap a pallet in the quickest possible time – making your pallet wrapping easier, quicker and much more efficient.
