Having to wrap pallets by hand while monitoring carton packing, sealing, labelling and palletising was stretching the operator’s resources on the muesli bar line. With limited space and only hand pallet trucks to move the completed pallets a conventional pallet wrapper was out of the question.
Universal Packaging supplied a Spinny S140TP Wrapper with a slotted turntable specifically designed for use with hand pallet trucks. The wrapper was positioned so the operators could stack the cartons of finished goods directly onto the pallet sitting on the wrappers turntable. Once complete the operator simply attached the film and started the wrap cycle. On completion of the wrap cycle they could then unload the pallet from the wrapper using the hand pallet truck.
This solution eliminated a number of steps from the process allowing the operators time to concentrate on other areas of the production line and ensured a well wrapped pallet every time. Damages to pallets for export due to insufficient wrap integrity were eliminated, operator fatigue and wrapping related injuries were eliminated, and production rates increased.
What Our Customers Say
I have modified that parameter which has increased the carriage speed and reduced the total cycle time by half a minute, so definitely a good result. Thanks for your help with this.
Our new stretch wrapper is performing very well. It’s amazing how well it works, we are getting a far better yield from our wrap and with the new automatic option the time to wrap each pallet has been reduced dramatically.
Today I made the decision to place an order for another pallet of stretch film from Universal Packaging after buying from another supplier for the last couple of months. The reason is very simple – we had some supply issues with the other supplier. With Universal, we can absolutely trust their service, delivery and back-up and their price is still competitive, so we’re back. All the best for you and your team – we really appreciate our partnership.
We have been testing different stretch wrap in the past and found that Universal Packaging supplies really great quality product. We wrap pallets tight and keeping them stable is very important. From great consistency in the stretch wrap to fast and responsive service, I highly recommend Universal Packaging to supply you with your wrapping requirements.
Universal Packaging’s film is excellent because the film clings to itself very well which means we don’t get tails or film unwinding off the pallet which had been an ongoing issue until now. This is very important for wrapping pallets in our dusty environment.
Universal has super service and we like the quality of the product because it helps us with production efficiencies.
