Wulftec SMLPA200 Wrapping Solution for an Australian Meat Distributor
FROMM recently partnered with an Australian Meat Distributor to reduce their plastic waste and speed up their dispatch area.
Our client always hand wrapped their pallets. With a monthly plastics bill above $47,000 (which includes hand wrap, tray liners and bags) they wanted to reduce their plastic footprint and save money.
The customer's requirements included - the ability to work in a wet and cold environment, robust/reliable automatic power pre-stretch unit capable of doing 50 pallets per day off-peak and up to 160 pallets peak. Would prefer for their operators not to get on or off the forklift in a relatively confined cool room environment.
After a full review of their current hand wrapping and dispatch methods, FROMM recommended the Wulftec SMLPA200. Built tough for the harshest of environments, the SMLPA200 has the added benefit of remote control, a 250% pre-stretch pallet wrap delivery system, film cut and wipe system, larger turntable diameter and an increased max load and wrap height.
It has the same 100% all-steel construction, making it ideal for wet or corrosive environments and can wrap 20 pallets an hour or 160 pallets a day.
Overall the SMLPA200 Wrapping Machine has increased production throughput, decreased overall cost per pallet wrapped, reduced the WH&S risks and increased packaging staff morale.
