Light pallet loads are difficult to wrap with conventional stretch film wrappers. The Safetech MX A-Arm stretch film wrapper can safely and effectively contain light loads because of its unique wrapping process.
VIP Packaging are plastic and steel packaging solutions providers in Australia and New Zealand. Their extrusion and thermoformed packaging plant produces foam meat trays for supply chains. However, production wrapping bails of foam meat trays, which are light loads, were swept off the pallets by the tension on the stretch film. Operators were required to assist existing wrapper until the wrapping cycle was complete, which caused a loss in film cost and productivity.
VIP Packaging chose the Safetech MX A-Arm powered pre-stretch wrapper with automatic attach and detach of film. The MX A-Arm stretch wrapper was chosen to eliminate the need for an operator to control the wrapper during a cycle. The overhead arm, which applies the film, contains the most vulnerable part of the load immediately. Powered pre-stretch rollers deliver the film pre-stretched to the load with minimal force, keeping the light load intact.
