The Problems With Hand Wrapping pallets.

Image
Ever since the creation of stretch wrapping, various types of applications have been developed for wrapping pallet loads. One of these methods includes hand wrapping which involves a person walking around the pallet, securing the load with a roll of hand-held stretch film.  Although some people might find this method useful today, it’s not always the most productive.


Depending on the size and structure of the pallet that you are wrapping, there is a large amount of bending and twisting involved in making sure that the entire pallet is wrapped thoroughly. Even with orderly and square pallets, hand wrapping requires that an employee walk around in circles which causes dizziness and may lead to a higher risk of harm for employees. Thus, hand wrapping could generate inefficiencies in the supply chain process as work injuries cause downtime, high insurance costs, and workers compensation. Sometimes you may even need to hire a replacement worker which could result in more time and money.

Heat Shrink Films

Image
Polyethylene (PE) Shrink Film

The most widespread shrink wrap film is low density polyethylene, more commonly referred to as polythene or PE.  The principal use to which PE is put is as a transit medium. It allows packs to be wrapped individually or collated and offers the best combination of protection and unit cost when compared with the alternatives.
PE shrink wrap packaging film is used on a vast range of products, from radiators and work surfaces to collation of cans and jars and the individual shrink packaging of cartons and products themselves, such as pizza.
Shrink wrap plastic applications do have overlap between transit and display shrink film where there is a requirement for the enhanced presentation offered by display, and equally, where the advantages of display are not required.
The shrink wrap plastic ranges do not overlap totally as a fundamental transit requirement in the normal way can be satisfied only by PE shrink wrap film.
