Companies that are hand wrapping and switch to stretch wrapping will see significant savings in film usage. As well, hand wrapping is a time-consuming and physically demanding operation. Stretch wrapping is easier and safer, while reducing product damage and labor. The cost of a stretch wrap machine is easily justified, even with 10-15 loads per day. A stretch wrap machine is excellent business sense production rates go up, labor costs go down, wrapping is more consistent and there is more quality control over the wrapping process to ensure damage-free distribution.
