Look no further than YPS for stretch wrapping machines that will streamline and complete your packaging operation, leaving your goods ready for transit or warehouse storage. Teaming up with the industry-leaders Robopac and TOSA, we are pleased to present these ideal end-of-line machines dedicated to high performance pallet wrapping. Machines are available in both semi-automatic and fully automatic variations with an impressive choice of specifications and optional extras to suit every application and any warehouse setting. Please note that our fully automatic machines are designed for pallets to be conveyor-fed whilst the semi-automatic equipment typically requires your pallets to be positioned into the wrapping area by an operator with a pump truck or forklift truck.

"I am delighted with the pallet wrapper. It's transformed our despatch process, which is now more efficient and minimised damage to even our very largest products during transportation."
Help & Advice
Yes! We offer a scheme where our equipment can be hired for a minimum period of three months. Should you wish to purchase the equipment after this period, we will deduct the hire charges you have already paid from the final price, meaning it costs no extra than purchasing it outright in the first place.

A turntable model involves pallets being loaded onto a plate at the base. The plate is then spun round causing the stretch film, which is fixed to one corner, to wrap around the pallet. The film holder moves up and down to ensure the entire pallet is covered.
A rotating arm pallet wrapper, also called a rotary stretch wrapper, is ideal for more unstable or heavier products where the pallet is best kept stationary. The film holder is positioned on an arm which is levered from above and which moves around the pallet below in a circular motion, thereby wrapping the film around it. The arm is able to move up and down in order to distribute the stretch film over the entire pallet.
Both pallet wrapping systems are ideal for unstable or heavy loads because the pallets remain stationary whilst stretch film is applied, however there are some subtle differences between these two types.
The rotating arm machines use a cantilevered appendage with a mounted film holder to move around the perimeter of the pallet whilst dispensing and applying pallet wrap.
The rotating ring machines, by contrast, feature a fixed circuit which sits above the stationery pallet and around which the stretch film dispenser tracks, wrapping the load as it encircles it. Rotary ring wrappers are better suited to very high speed applications.
Although commonly confused, shrink and stretch are two completely different packaging methods. Stretch wrapping is used to wrap pallets of products securely for transportation purposes. The film stretches around these stacked pallets. Shrink wrapping is designed to wrap the products themselves either in singles or collations for several reasons including aesthetic presentation, tamper-evidence and preservation. The wrapping method involves the application of heat to shrink the plastic film around the exact shape of the product.
