What should you consider when you buy a pallet stretch wrapping machine? The first thing you should think is the type of production (i.e. how many loads per day do you have to wrap) Does your organization have now? Seasonally? In five years? In ten years?
This will help determine if you have enough production to warrant a fully-automatic pallet stretch wrapping machine and/or the speed required. In many applications, a semi-automatic stretch wrapper does just fine and is a great introduction to automation in the production line. It will also help you determine not only the right machine for now, but the right machine for future growth as well.
Other considerations include:
1. How are pallet loads created?
2. How are they moved around the warehouse?
3. How much space do you have for a stretch wrapper?
Once you have a strong sense of your organization's needs and goals, it's time to seek out the most suitable pallet wrapping machine.
