Still hand wrapping loads because you are unsure if a stretch wrapping machine is worth the investment? Many companies, even ones that wrap just 10 loads per day, have found significant savings in film usage and labor costs with a stretch wrap machine. Hand wrapping is a tedious and time consuming job that can lead to uneven packaging and slow throughput. A stretch wrapper is a quick, easy way to secure loads and get more product out the door.
The savings from using a stretch wrapper comes from a reduction in film needed to wrap loads. We've witnessed it many times, packages being wrapped with far too much hand wrap. A stretch wrapper is set to wrap the loads with the least amount of stretch film to secure the load, reducing unnecessary packaging waste and reducing your costs.
