Palletizing shipments are designed to keep your product safe and secure when transporting goods from one warehouse to another. Pallet stretch wrappers are machines designed to wrap pallets and eliminate the laborious task of hand wrapping.
When to Upgrade to a Pallet Wrapper
Hand wrapping can be time consuming and a tedious operation. Stretch wrapping utilizing a pallet wrapper is easier and will reduce your film costs and provide labor savings. We have found that even at 15 pallets a day, you may be able to justify the cost of a pallet wrapper.
Advantages of a Pallet Wrapper
Pallet wrappers will stretch film accurately making sure you are using the right amount of stretch film. In addition, purchasing machine stretch film vs. hand stretch film will provide significant cost savings as well
Labor costs savings
Utilizing a pallet wrapper to wrap pallets will not only result in film savings but the faster speed of a machine vs. hand wrapping will result in labor cost savings as well
Consistent and uniform application
A pallet wrapper will produce a clean professional product. Pallet wrapping by hand can result in uneven quality depending on the operator. Multiple operators, time of day, fatigue and other variables may result in different quality. A stretch wrap machine eliminates those variables
Pallet wrappers are better able to protect pallets as they provide an even stretch force vs. hand wrapping
Cost Analysis: Questions to Ask to Determine WHEN to Invest in a Pallet Wrapper
What is your output? Think about how many pallets you are wrapping on a weekly basis
How much are you spending on stretch film?
How long does it take to get a pallet wrapped and loaded on a truck?
We have a cost analysis calculator available for you. Download our cost analysis spreadsheet which allows you to compare the cost of hand wrapping vs. stretch wrapping. Please note this spreadsheet only calculates the film savings and not labor cost savings.
Sealer Sales Pallet Wrappers
We offer a variety of pallet wrappers to suit your needs and our distributors can help you determine which pallet wrapper will work best for your applications. Keep in mind the following:
What is the LPH (Loads per hour) you want to run per hour/day?
What are the pallet sizes – length x width x height
What are the weights of the pallets? Min and max?
Do you need a scale in order to weigh the pallet load?
Does your warehouse have a forklift? Do you need a loading ramp with your pallet wrapper?

Over the past couple of years, Sealer Sales has donated packaging equipment and supplies to San Jose State University to help combat food insecurity on the campus.
Sealer Sales and San Jose State University assistant professor Dan Nathan-Roberts were featured in the Summer 2019 cover story by the American Society of Engineering Education’s flagship magazine, PRISM about food insecurity on college campuses. Hunger has become a campus wide problem and many students are unable to afford dining halls. The U.S. Government Accountability Office estimated that some 3.3 million college students potentially eligible for aid, more than half—some 1.8 million individuals—didn’t apply for the benefit in 2016.
Students in the Dan Nathan-Robert’s Work Measurement and Work Design class at San Jose State University learn how to design, produce, test and improve assembly methods for trail mix. Packaging equipment and supplies for the class were donated by Sealer Sales. In addition to manufacturing a real product, more than 1,000 pounds and 3,000 bags have been donated by the class to the campus food banks over the past four years. In addition to combating food insecurity on campus, “students in the class see the positive impact that engineering can have, and our trail mix has become one of the most requested items in the pantries” stated Nathan-Roberts.
Sealer Sales is committed to serving educational and charitable organizations and we are very excited to be able to assist with this project. If you would like to help with this project, please reach out to Sealer Sales at email@example.com or Dan Nathan-Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
