Benefits of a Pallet Wrapping Robot

Date: 18-10-2019 Posted in Product Education

Have you considered a mobile stretch wrapping robot? 

In the right situation mobile pallet wrappers are an excellent investment. They can offer wrapping machine solution in situations where a conventional machine is not viable, and in doing so offer greater productivity, lower labour costs and most importantly greater safety for workers.

How do they work?

The user stands behind the unit and drives it to the desired location, parking it alongside the pallet to be wrapped. The user simply presses a button and walks away, and the unit will wrap the pallet automatically and stop once complete.

 Ideal situations for a mobile pallet wrapper

  • Sites that have pallets being wrapped in multiple locations- e.g. despatch & incoming goods areas
  • Wrapping pallets/crates that are oversized and too big for a conventional rotating pallet wrapper
  • Situations where there is not enough space for a conventional wrapping machine, in these cases you may wrap products in a driveway or hardstand using your mobile pallet wrapper.
