a. Manual Stretch Wrapping: If wrapping manually, start by anchoring the film to the load. Hold the film roll and walk around the load, applying tension to the film as you go. Overlap each layer of the film by 50% to ensure proper coverage. Continue wrapping from the bottom to the top of the load, creating multiple layers for stability. Finally, secure the film by tucking or cutting the end and applying pressure to ensure it adheres to itself.

b. Automated Stretch Wrapping: In automated systems, the load is placed on a turntable or conveyed through a stretch wrapping machine. The machine automatically applies the stretch film based on pre-programmed settings. The load rotates or moves while the film is dispensed and stretched to the desired tension. These machines offer speed, consistency, and precision in the wrapping process.

Stretch wrapping is an effective and versatile packaging method used across various industries. By understanding why and how it works, you can implement stretch wrapping techniques to protect your goods, improve handling efficiency, and enhance the overall integrity of your packaged items.
