Semi-Automatic Rotary Arm Stretch Wrapper (Custom Three-Position)


This client came to us with three specific challenges:

  1. Compact space for palletizing and stretch wrapping.
  2. High volume of pallets.
  3. Minimize pallet handling due to tall and unstable loads.

Our engineers set to work designing a solution for all three difficulties and what’s shown in the video is what they created. Let’s take a look at this stretch wrapper and how it solves each problem.

Challenge 1: Limited Space

With not enough warehouse room for multiple stretch wrappers, we created a single stretch wrap machine that could wrap three loads one after another. The machine and carriage is mounted on a swivel base. With a simple push (shown in the video beginning at 2:29) an operator maneuvers the wrapper to into position and readies it to wrap the pallet. A foot pedal locking mechanism ensures the swivel base stays put during the wrapping cycle.

Challenge 2: High Volume

A stretch wrapper with speed and agility was a tall order. Our modified rotary arm semi-automatic has three defined positions. The video shows a complete cycle through all three positions. Watch for the forklift operator to place a full pallet load in position 1 (at 1:03) then remove the fully wrapped pallet load from position 2 (at 1:44). The video demonstrates the stretch wrapper’s ability to keep up with the volume: It wraps three tall and large pallets in less than 3 minutes and 30 seconds.

Challenge 3: Minimize Pallet Handling 

A rotary arm stretch wrapper works well for tall and/or lightweight pallet wrapping jobs. This customized machine has an extra-large 30-inch stretch film carriage and accommodates pallets up to 105 inches (8.75 feet) tall. The loads remain safe and stable on the warehouse floor during the wrapping cycle.
