SEMI AUTOMATIC vs. FULLY AUTOMATIC WRAPPING MACHINES – WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE?

Are you wondering which type of machine is better for your business – semi automatic or fully automatic wrapping machine? In the following article we are going to explain what is the difference between the machines.

Semi automatic wrapping machines are usually used when handling low-volume applications

Semi automatic wrapping machines are suitable if you are handling low-volume  applications, with fewer than 20 loads per hour being wrapped. These machines provide a safe method of unitizing loads, while providing a competent pallet load to fulfil your customers’ demands. Semi automatic wrapping machines require an operator, who needs to place the pallet onto the machine and apply the film tail to the load to initiate the cycle. After that, the stretch wrapping applies the film and wraps the pallet load.

Automatic stretch wrapping machines need no operator

Automatic stretch wrapping machines are usually used in higher volume applications, from 20 pallets per hour to up to 120 loads per hour being wrapped. In comparison to semi automatic stretch wrapping machines, automatic stretch wrapping machine, need no operator intervention during the cycle. Usually, loads are brought to the automatic stretch wrapping machine on a conveyor belt, where from the automatic stretch wrapping machine can automatically begin wrapping of the products. Fully automatic stretch wrapping machines interpret the height of each pallet load to the film carriage and ensure a professional and efficient wrap every time. The film is then cut and sealed to the pallet load, which exits the wrapping cycle to make room for other loads.
