Lantech introduces the easy-adjust Pallet-Grip load-locking system for its straddle stretch-wrapping systems. Pallet-Grip locks a load to a pallet with a cable of film rolled into the bottom wraps and placed below the pallet's deck. The new Pallet-Grip system captures any style of pallet in heights from 4 to 6 inches, while retaining the ability to completely wrap to top of the load. The system places a rolled cable of film approximately 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) below the pallet deck, while the remainder of the film web captures the load above the deck, creating an effective pallet containment system.
The film cable is exceptionally strong, almost like a wire reinforcement built into the bottom of the web. The cable is placed above the pallet fork-truck entry points, assuring that containment force is never compromised by tearing the film with the forks. This system physically locks a load to a pallet to prevent costly spillage and damage due to shifting. Pallet-Grip is ideal when double-stacking pallet loads or for shipping product on GMA pallets, winged pallets, plastic pallets, or skids. The new design maintains a constant wrap force around load corners and over wings to eliminate any potential for tearing the film web.
Machines equipped with the system also maintain a full prestretch percentage to ensure lowest operating cost. With Pallet-Grip, the force-to-pallet containment is set with the wrap force of the machine, and the amount of the film web that's rolled into cable is also controlled by the machine. Pallet-Grip is available for retrofit on Lantech overhead straddle stretch wrappers. Contact Lantech to confirm availability and compatibility.
