Hand Wrapping VS Stretch Wrapping

Are you still manually wrapping loads because you think a stretch wrapping machine is too costly for your current needs?

You may want to reconsider before dismissing this option.

Hand Wrapping

  • Film waste
  • 10% pre-stretch
  • 12 loads per hour
  • Uneven packaging
  • Tedious and time consuming
  • Manual labor

Stretch Wrapping

  • Film savings… up to 66%
  • 250% pre-stretch
  • 55 loads per hour
  • Professional packaging
  • Quick and easy
  • Minimal operator involvement

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 makes 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.
