A snapshot of the orbital wrapper from ITW Muller.
ITW Muller (Douglasville, GA), inventors and manufacturers of orbital stretch wrapping machines, is proud to highlight the benefits of its acclaimed 87M Yellow Jacket Orbital Stretch Wrap Machine.
The Orbital wrapper is ideal for securing oversized, oddly shaped, palletized loads while the pallet remains on the forklift. Yellow Jacket’s customers have reported anywhere from $20,000-$50,000 saved annually in labor costs alone. Factor in the increase in product integrity, reduction in material use and other hidden costs, and the savings only increase.
The 87M is a horizontally positioned stretch wrap dispenser that moves around and under a load as the Yellow Jacket is manually advanced across the length of the load – significantly minimizing the time it takes to wrap a load by hand. Typically it takes two workers roughly 10 minutes to wrap a load by hand. Yellow Jacket can wrap a similar load with one worker in one minute.
In addition to reducing the labor required to wrap by at least 50 percent, Yellow Jacket also eliminates the need for other strapping materials or expensive cartons to secure loads. Tightly wrapped to the pallet, the load’s ability to shift, fall or slide in transit is nearly impossible.
Yellow Jacket’s Orbital Stretch Wrap is available in manual or semi-automatic. The 87M requires a footprint of only about 8’x9’ and runs on 110VAC – making it easy to install in most any plant. It also wraps a standard pallet size up to 68” diagonal.
