- There are many packaging machines with various features. Perhaps you will recognize some of the functions listed below as suitable for your specific case:
- Integrated weight scale (optional): Installed on the shrink-wrapping machine, it will transport your pallet while packaging, without the need for additional activities in the entire process.
- Remote control (optional): You can reduce the time a motor operator needs to get on and off the forklift by half, thus increasing your efficiency.
- Load clamping pawl: thanks to this optional feature, the machine is able to keep the load stable when stretch wrapping it
- Ramp (optional): Makes it easy to manually handle and unload pallets with a manual pallet truck.
The size of the product packaging and your available space are important.
The size of your product packaging and the available space in your warehouse are two important factors to consider when choosing a pallet wrapping machine. It's not just the size of your pallets, but also the available space in your warehouse that will play a decisive role in your choice. Don't buy a big shrink-wrapping machine if your pallets are small. The working functions may look impressive when printed on paper, but make sure you really need and will use what you're paying for.
First and foremost: what is your budget?
A pallet wrapping machine is an investment for your company. With that in mind, calculate the expected savings over a five-year period for each of the candidate machines and see if these savings are worth the investment.
Also, don't forget to include your employees in the equation. Shrink-wrapping machines are much safer than manual packaging, and the price of a safe working environment cannot be overlooked.
