In businesses, efficient and consistent packaging enhances product appeal and brand recognition. Products that are packed securely and pleasantly promote customer satisfaction. Additionally, it protects products from tampering, contamination, elemental damage, and other risks.

Semi-automatic stretch wrapping is one of the simplest, quickest, and cheapest methods for wrapping and packaging bulk products.

We at Cougar Packaging Solutions offer three types of semi-automatic stretch wrapping: low-profile turntable, high-profile turntable, and overhead rotary arm stretch wrappers. These advanced machines are designed to meet clients’ unique operations appropriately. With 50 years of experience, we guarantee expertly manufactured equipment and industrial packaging solutions!

Semi-Automatic Stretch Wrappers

For low-volume applications, a semi-automatic stretch wrapper is preferred over manual procedures. These machines are nearly entirely automated, providing time efficiency and eliminating the possibility of error. In addition, they offer a safe approach for unitizing goods while delivering a competent pallet load to meet clients’ needs.

Semi-automatic stretch wrap machines need an operator to load pallets and attach the film tail to start the cycle. Then, the stretch wrapper will do the work of wrapping the pallet.

Picking The Stretch Film Gauge

Gauge refers to the wrap’s thickness, which varies by purpose. Many aspects go into choosing the best film for your application. At Cougar Packaging Solutions, we can help you through the selection process and determine the suitable film for your load and budget. Following are some tips on deciding which stretch film gauge to go for.

  • Ultra-high-performance films have distinct qualities that result in lower consumption than conventional films.
  • Highly engineered films can deliver the same performance with 40% less product consumption.
  • Secure your loads at the lowest cost per wrap to save money.
  • You can reduce your CO2 emissions by 6kg for each kilogram of plastic saved if you opt to use lesser film.
  • Generally, the higher the gauge, the higher it can withstand breakage, but the more plastic consumption it may require.
  • Leverage advancements in technology and equipment to find a solution for your load needs, goals, and budget.
  • Choose Cougar Packaging Solutions to help you save on cost and consumption.
