Muller/Yellow Jacket Booth # S5387

Chicago, IL, (October 11, 2013)—Muller LCS, a leading manufacturer of both innovative stretch wrap equipment and high quality stretch wrap film, is exhibiting at FABTECH 2013 in Chicago, Illinois at Booth  # S5387.  The company will highlight one of its most innovative technologies, the 87M Yellow Jacket Orbital Stretch Wrap Machine.

“From complex fabrications to heavy metal parts and assemblies, the machine was literally built to   solve a market need to efficiently wrap otherwise impossible loads,” says Michael Klear, Sales and Marketing Director, Muller LCS. “The fact that it does that and more is worth a look.”

The Orbital wrapper ideal for securing oversized, oddly shaped, palletized loads while the pallet remains on the forklift. Yellow Jacket’s customers have reported anywhere from $20,000-50,000 dollars saved annually in labor costs alone. Factor in the increase in product integrity, reduction in material use and other hidden costs, and the savings only increase. The 87M is a horizontally positioned stretch wrap machine that moves around and under a load as the Yellow Jacket is manually advanced across the length of the load- significantly minimizing the time it takes to wrap a load by hand. Typically it takes 2 workers roughly 10 minutes to wrap a load by hand. Yellow Jacket can wrap a similar load with 1 worker in 1 minute. In addition to reducing the labor required to wrap by at least 50%, Yellow Jacket also eliminates the need for other strapping materials or expensive cartons to secure loads. Tightly wrapped to the pallet, the load’s ability to shift, fall or slide in transit is nearly impossible.

Yellow Jacket’s Orbital Stretch Wrap is available in manual or semi-automatic. The 87M requires a footprint of only about 8’x9’ and runs on 110VAC- making it easy to install in most any plant. It also wraps a standard pallet size up to 68” diagonal.
