Two types of automatic pallet wrappers

There are two types of fully automatic pallet wrappers: a wrapper with a rotating arm and a turntable wrapper. 

  • A pallet wrapper with a rotating arm keeps the pallet stationary instead of rotating The machine can pack all kinds of pallets but is a particularly good choice if you need to wrap extremely light loads since the machine allows the pallet to remain securely in place 
  • A pallet wrapper with a turntable has a platform on which the pallet rotates around itself which makes it wrapped.
