Wrapping pallets by hand prior to shipment requires multiple employees and is a time-consuming process. Each day companies are switching over and reaping the benefits of pallet wrappers. These systems cut down costs by requiring only one operator and increasing production speeds dramatically. The Yellow Jacket secures pallets of varying dimensions without the need for additional resources.
The Yellow Jacket orbital stretch wrap machine is perfect for securing over-sized, oddly shaped, palletized loads while the pallet is on the forklift. The horizontally positioned stretch wrap dispenser moves around and under the load as the Yellow Jacket is either manually (with the 87M) or semi automatically (with 87SA) advanced across the length of the load.
This process greatly cuts down on the time it takes to wrap a load by hand. Two workers take about 10 minutes to wrap a load by hand. With Yellow Jacket, one worker can wrap a similar load in 1 minute. You cut down on the labor required to wrap by at least 50%. Yellow Jacket also gets rid of the need for other strapping materials and expensive cartons to secure loads. Tightly wrapped to the pallet, the load’s ability to shift, fall, or slide in transit is nearly impossible.
