THE MACH 1 ADVANTAGE
If you asking yourself why you should invest in a Mach 1 pallet wrap machine then let us help you understand some of the undeniable benefits:
1. BETTER UNITIZING
Pallets are mainly stretch wrapped in order to protect them from damage during transport by effectively unitizing them. Pre-stretching the film 250% without neck down before it’s applied to your pallet load increases the tensioning forces that are applied to the load to a degree that can only be achieved by our uniquely built X-Stretch, pre-stretch film carriage. The variable speed, power pre-stretch rollers provide automatic corner compensation for a consistent film tension. This provides more flexibility than our competitors whether you’re wrapping bricks or empty PET bottles!
2. CONSISTENT WRAPPING PATTERN
Mach 1’s stretch wrap machines and systems feature a variety of programmable wrap parameters to apply exactly the amount of stretched film that your load requires. Because they are machines, they will run for hours without getting tired where we humans will be far less precise after just a few pallets wrapped. Our pallet wrappers can also pull tricks that others or human operators can’t. For example All Mach 1 wrappers will wrap your pallet load all the way to the ground and some models can also rope the film to create a stronger product to pallet lock.
3. OUT THE DOOR FASTER AND SAFER
Stretch wrapping is the last step of your manufacturing or distributing process and you want to be sure it’s done fast and well. Wrap time will depend on several factors such as load size, stability and quantity of film applied but on average 1 minute is all it takes to perform a wrap cycle. Comprehensive yet user friendly operator interfaces also contribute to get you going faster. Many dangers such as back injuries, hand burns and collision due to employees walking backwards while hand wrapping are completely eliminated with a stretch wrap machine or system. Safety is paramount and providing user safe equipment is of great interest to Mach 1. We are one of the very few that use steel only when fabricating covers and shields to protect from moving parts. There are no cracking plastics here!
4. OPTIMIZE YOUR LABOUR FORCE
Taking the physical effort out of the equation means that operators remain more alert and efficient to get the job done. This also opens the door to greater multi-tasking that is far more valorizing for the operators. Grow your business without increasing labor costs.
5. REDUCE FILM USAGE
Pre-stretching means actually stretching the film before it is applied onto the pallet load unlike stretching it while applying it that results from hand wrapping or using a machine that does not have a pre-stretch film carriage. If you’re wrapping 10-15 pallet loads every day then a Mach 1 wrapper with the X-Stretch film carriage is the appropriate choice. Because we value good sense, most semi-automatic machines and all fully automatic systems come equipped with our unique X-Stretch film carriage that stretches film to a standard ratio of 250% with minimal neck down. This is the most cost effective technique to safely unitize pallet loads. When you take the step from hand wrapping to machine stretch wrapping, you instantly reduce film usage. In addition to the dramatic 50% reduction on average of film expenses you’re also making a sustainable choice by reducing your carbon footprint. When was the last time you actually saved dollars by taking a sensible decision?
