1.Protect the package and eliminate damage
Using the Horizontal orbital stretch wrapper and ring type wrapping machine, LLDPE stretch film is extended as it is applied and packing requirement. Once the stretch film is around the package, it contracts and encloses just like a rubber band, to keep the compression and stake package together. It prevents harm to colored, highly polished surfaces requirement which safeguards the items in transition. Avoid the requirement of interleaved buffer materials.
2.Material and Reduce Packing Costs.
Horizontal orbital stretch wrapper/wrapping machines can eliminate bulky, expensive packing material in wrapping like foam, tape, shrinking wrapping, paper Knit belt, string, pet belt. The highly packing speed saves you time and labor costs. All above minimize your packaging cost.
3.Uniteze length wrapping available.
The horizontal orbital stretch wrapper/wrapping machine is ideal for long objects such as unitizing pipe, tube, profile, lumber, door, window, board, section,MDF wood,MDF board, textile rolls... No limited with one or more layer of stretch film or any other packing material. Overwrapping, the rate is adjustable according to the different width. You packages are protected from dust, moisture, damage.
For making a right decision in choosing the right orbital wrapping machine. Figure out your goal first, then start collecting quotes and understand why stretch packaging is an important part of your shipping process.Transport the goods from your plant to your customer's plant through stretch packaging, ensuring that there will be no damage.Deliver at the lowest effective shipping cost (LCES). The most straightforward reason is that machines pack better than people.
Under the same conditions, the machine is better at carrying the uniform load and is easier to achieve the purpose.Try your best to choose the best way to transport. In addition, you will need to try to gather some important details about your packaging so that your client or customer representative can provide a reference quotation.

The feed back from the different industry customer, which in-transit damage is the biggest cost driver for stretch wrapped package.
Whether your favorite packing material will work. It’s more likely that hand wrapping used packing material won’t work as well on a machine. You’ve got to consider the what is the best one for your package in stretch film paper, bubble film... Talk with your team or your customer find one the best for load protection.
How tight to wrap the package. The head, middle and tail layers of your package all need to have the correct amount of containment force, which is the wrap force multiplied by the number of packing material layers. The right amount of containment force depends on the type of load you’re wrapping. Is it heavy, light or unstable? More containment force for heavy load and lighter loads may require less.
What is the wrap pattern should be. This depends on your settings. You need to choose how many layer packing required, what kind of packing material combination, such as bubble film+stretch film, HDPE film+stretch film... You must also decide the wrap force setting and how much overwrapping you want applied on the top of the pallet.
Don’t buy “cheap” film. Low quality has higher risk for flaws (gels, nicks, tears). “Cheap” film may be less resistant to tear and doesn’t have the ability to stretch as far as performance films. Setting the wrap force depends on different package size. Upon your film and product, play around with the tension of the film to determine the best setting. Make sure the machine you buy will get the job done. Don’t guess, test. Get help if you’re not sure.
This leads us into our next point: machines are cheap, people are expensive. Keep in mind, the capital cost of a machine is fixed at the time of purchase and will ultimately convert into an operating expense.Choosing the optional function to make the machine with higher automatic level and save manual work.
One reason you may be investing in a stretch wrapper is to reduce workplace accidents and back injuries. Keep in mind, musculoskeletal injuries are the leading cause of your employees missing work. Non-fatal workplace injuries related to musculoskeletal disorders cost businesses more than $21 billion every year.
