We supply a full range of pallet wrap machines. Starting with low cost machines, our range expands to efficient, highly sophisticated machines. Therefore, the model chosen will depend on the amount of pallets being wrapped and the budget.
The low cost machines are core break which means that they have a brake on the carriage. This slows down the film coming off the roll and so stretches the film onto the pallet. This is a good step up from hand wrapping pallets. It is more cost effective and the goods on the pallet are more secure as the film is wrapped tighter. Depending on the machine setting, we would expect that for every metre of film used it will be stretch up to 2 metres.
The more sophisticated machine pre-stretches the film as it goes through rollers so that the film is stretched to it’s maximum. Then the final roller on the machine lays the film onto the pallet so it is tight. We would recommend this machine for 10 pallets a day and upwards. In addition, the extra cost of the machine is easily covered by the film savings. Depending on the set up of the machine, for every metre of film coming off the roll it is stretch up to 4 metres which offers an excellent saving over the core brake machine.
