Low height Stretch Wrapping eases the strain

Industry:

Food Bank (wholesaler of imported and exported foods).

Application:

Food Bank distributes and exports wholesale food items. Central to this operation is the use of a Lo wrapper with a manual mast. The Lo Wrapper is ideal for this customer and the varied items that are wrapped e.g. boxes, cartons and bags of grain foods.

The Problem:

The operator of the Lo Wrapper has a disability due to a car accident and must avoid excessive strain on his back and legs. Using the Lo Wrapper saves plenty of time and virtually eliminates any back strain - especially when compared to the prior manual operations of hand stretch.

Product Chosen:

Lo Wrapper with manual mast.

Benefits of this Product:

  • This operation allows this customer to put his disabled staff to work on jobs otherwise only suitable for able bodied persons.
  • Hours of labour are saved in contrast with the old manual method.
  • As shown in the video footage the operator is able to use the wrapper with a crossover method on the corners providing much greater load stability than manual wrapping.

Alternatives:

The alternative to this operation is the customer would only be able to use his able bodied staff to wrap the pallets manually. As you can see by the image and the method the customer uses, he does it with great ease.
