Pallet packaging plays an important role in the field of packaging. Pallet wrapping machine is a cost effective and quick way to protect your goods during transportation. In this guide, we'll take you through what pallet packing is and how to pack pallets properly.
Pallet wrap is a highly stretchable film, also commonly referred to as "stretch film" or "stretch wrap". It is most commonly used to wrap items on pallets. The elastic recovery ensures that items are tightly bound and fully secured for shipping.
By securing the load, product loss and tampering are reduced. It also protects goods from certain weather conditions, dust and light debris. Black or tinted stretch film is ideal for shipping goods that cannot be exposed to excessive sunlight, such as electronics.
Versatile and highly durable, pallet wrap is used primarily in factories, manufacturing and storage. It can also be used for many everyday items, such as furniture, windows and food packaging.
Pallet wrap stretch film is the most common plastic film made from linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE). The manufacturing process involves heating and compressing the resin (small particles of plastic material) at a specific temperature depending on the desired viscosity. It is then pushed through an annular mold to form a continuous plastic layer. Additional resins and additives, such as pigments, tackifiers and UV resistance, may be included.
Packing trays by hand follows a very similar process, but is a very manual process. Whether you are using machine or manual pallet wrapping, you can follow these simple steps as a guide for wrapping pallets.
First, choose a pallet that does not have any broken boards and is similar in size to the load you will be packing.
Stack the products as tightly as possible. Also, make sure the weight is evenly distributed, with heavier items at the bottom and lighter items at the top.
Attach the wrap by passing it through one corner of the pallet and tie it off until it is completely secure.
Begin wrapping the bottom of the load. Then wrap at least 3 or 4 times, making sure the corners are tightly wrapped.
Work your way up with the layers overlapping. Once you reach the top, start rewinding to stabilize the load.
When the entire load is securely wrapped, tear off the ends and tape or tuck them into the edges of the tray.
When finished, test the stability of the load by gently pushing on the top item. If nothing comes loose or moves, then you can be sure the load is strong and will not move during transport.
Lightweight - Low thickness general purpose pallet packaging. Ideal for well-stacked pallet loads consisting entirely of similarly shaped boxes.
Medium - Stronger than light and should be used when your pallet consists of a few extra irregularly shaped boxes (such as poster boxes).
Heavy Duty - A very strong pallet packaging film with a high level of tear and puncture resistance. Use this type of pallet wrap when you have a lot of irregularly shaped boxes with sharp edges.
