Know that buying a new automatic pallet wrapper will give you some advantages that can drastically increase the productivity of your company.

Lower labor costs, less film waste and a better safety are the main reasons why you should change your old manual wrapper with a cutting-edge model.

Keep reading to find out why.


Why buy an automatic pallet wrapper?

Depending on how old your manual pallet wrapper is, there may have been some progress in the safety field that can give it greater reliability. This is the first reason why you should upgrade your machinery and buy an automatic pallet wrapper.

Some manual wrappers have exposed wires or motor that could injure someone. On the other hand, most modern wrappers are very safe. Some automatically stop wrapping in case the film tears up.This prevents the operator from reconnecting it while the machine is running, thus avoiding unpleasant consequences.

Another advantage deriving from having an automatic pallet wrapper is the pre-stretch function, which is missing in the traditional manual wrappers.

It allows you to pre-stretch the stretch film, thus using less of it. If you manually wrap 100 pallets with a film roll, it will be possible to wrap between 200 and 300 pallets with an automatic wrapping machine, saving film thanks to the aforementioned pre-stretch function.

Saving money will help you allocating it to other corporate projects.

Moreover, any company can use this machine to reduce its labor costs: as a matter of fact, a manual wrapper requires many operators to work.

By purchasing an automatic pallet wrapper, you have the chance to save labor costs, as the automation will take place independently, while operators can now be assigned to activities that require critical thinking.
