Is your Machine Film being Stretched!
Here at Quick Pak Inc, we see this all the time. If a
stretch wrapper is not actually “stretching” the film to its full potential,
you are throwing money out the window. In addition, increasing the stretch of
the film will increase the containment force. A load wrapped with a machine which is not
stretching the film properly is much more prone to shipping damage. Many
companies don’t take these factors into account. They think that as long as
their machines are working, they are working properly.
We recently got a
call from a customer who has large distribution centers in many states and is
wrapping 2500 pallets per day. Their corporate office had noticed a trend that
a distribution center in one state was spending much more in film costs per
year than their other locations, even though they all used the same machines
and the same film. These machines are meant to stretch the film at 250%.
the Quick Pak team arrived we quickly found that some of their machines were
working properly, stretching the film to 250%, while others were stretching the
film significantly less due to mechanical failures in the film carriage. Using
state of the art testing technology we were able to determine that these faulty
machines were costing this customer about $600 per day in added film cost. We
quickly worked to resolve the issues with the film carriage and this location
is now exceeding their film cost benchmark.
If you don’t know how
much your machines are stretching the film or how much you are paying per load,
give us a call. We can perform a machine audit and provide a report on your
machine performance, film cost, and recommend solutions to bring your costs
down. A small investment in testing
could save you a lot!
