Pallet Jack Loading Of Automatic Stretch Wrappers

Many manufacturing operations have order pick and pack operations which require multiple operators using pallet jacks to arrange orders for shipping. These operations can be relatively high speed and thus require an automatic stretch wrapping system. The design below uses a low level conveying system with a pallet jack ramp to allow operators to introduce pallets to the automated wrapping system.

  • Pallet jacks, electric walkies or even triple pallet riding trucks can now be used to feed an automatic system ensuring increased production, improved load retention and film and labor savings.
  • Customized loading systems: Just another way Phoenix is willing to adapt equipment to meet your customers requirements.

High speed Automation for the distribution center environment.

5" pass height makes loading with pallet jack quick and efficient compared to competitive models that require operators to push loads up 8-10" inclines.

After stretch wrapping, the loads can, be removed using a forklift or by adding another access ramp.

High speed empty bottle wrapping using rotary ring technology

Phoenix is constantly customizing stretch wrap equipment to meet specific customer applications. Here is one in a series of application case studies to provide an understanding in how stretch wrapping equipment can be designed to meet your specific needs. If you have an application that you would like us to look at, please give us a call.


 Wrapping empty PET bottles means dealing with a number of difficulties during the wrapping process. PET bottle are palletized on larger than standard pallets. Typically 44"x 56", these loads require oversized wrapping machines. The high speed at which these loads are produced also requires that the stretch wrapper be capable of wrapping between 50-75 pallets per hour. Finally when wrapping empty bottles you are effectively wrapping air so it needs to wrap large loads very fast…but gently.

Today’s PET bottles are so thin that any little amount of film tension on the bottle crushes it. Thus the wrapper must be able to apply the film at a light enough tension so as not to crush the bottles but with some tension on it to hold the bottles in place and provide dust protection.

The Phoenix PRRA Rotary Ring style wrapper can start the wrapping at the bottom of a load and finish at the top without having to return back down to the clamp fixed at the conveyor.

Our proprietary technology enables the stretch film to be applied to the load with very light film tension even when wrapping at higher rotation speeds. This ensures that the pallet holds together but not with enough force to crush the empty bottles. View the video

The One Way Wrap Cycle means that you can save an extra 30+ feet of stretch film on each and every pallet.

That works out to tens of thousands of dollars in ANNUAL film savings compared to conventional Rotary arm or turntable wrappers.
