Overhead Stretch Wrappers

overhead stretch wrapper systemUtilizing rotating film cartridges to apply stretch film as they move around the load, overhead pallet wrappers are commonly available as semi-automatic and automatic systems. For versatility, this type of mechanized wrapper works well for light, fragile loads and unstable, heavy ones.

More than just a vendor, Millwood provides unit load insight and services you would expect from a partner. We combine in-house engineering and detailed industry knowledge to design and implement the ideal solutions for our customers regardless of their needs. We offer two types of overhead stretch wrappers:

  • Rotary Arm Overhead - With these models, the load is stationary and the rotary arm does the wrapping. For loads too unstable to be rotated, a rotary arm model would be suitable.
  • Rotary Ring Overhead - These wrappers are known to keep loads stationary but utilize a ring-shaped track system to guide the wrapping mechanism instead of an articulated arm. These stretch wrappers are very efficient and can operate constantly.

Complete Line of Semi-Automatic and Automatic Overhead Stretch Wrappers

Millwood has engineered both automatic and semi-automatic stretch wrappers available to meet each of our customers’ unique needs. The semi-automatic wrappers offer a balance of easy operation with user control while the fully automatic stretch wrappers require no operator.

  • Semi-Automatic Overhead: For low-volume operations, processing 10 to 40 loads an hour, a semi-automatic stretch wrapper is a potential solution. These wrappers safely unitize loads and lessen the margins for inconsistency.
  • Automatic Overhead: With no operator intervention during the cycle required, automatic stretch wrapping machines ensure a consistent wrap every time. Loads are typically brought to the machine on a conveyor belt so that the machine can automatically begin wrapping. These systems can generally process up to 100 loads an hour.
