GHL PP-981 LP / HP Pallet Wrapper Video Demo

GHL PP981 LP / HP Pallet WrapperHave you ever wondered how large pallets stacked with products are packaged with that saran wrap plastic? That is done by using what’s known as a stretch wrapper. These machines use wide rolls of a material that is very similar to saran / stretch wrap that helps keep multiple items in place, on a pallet, while in shipping. One popular stretch wrapper is the PP-981 (LP and HP). I am including a video demo of this machine in use in this article.

While stretch wrapping can be applied to a pallet of goods manually, the process takes some time and isn’t ideal for high-volume shipping in a warehouse. It is also difficult for an inexperienced person to evenly and correctly manually apply stretch wrap. There is also always the element of human error.

Automatic stretch / pallet wrappers spin the pallet around while a stretch wrap dispenser moves up and down, evenly applying film. The PP-981 is designed to semi automatically apply film using a mechanical pre-stretch applicator. Pre-stretching the film allows the film to better hold things together.

The PP-981 is designed to work with pallets (and goods) measuring in up to 3,000 pounds and up to 85″ high. The turntable that spins the pallet around has a fixed speed. The turntable is powered by a chain drive, which is extremely durable and it sits on 14 sets of double roller supports. The turntable is 59″ in diameter and has a non-slip surface.

This is a video demo of the GHL PP-981:

As you can see in this video, the entire process is very automated and very efficient. The PP-981 itself features a 10 program memory for custom stretch wrapping jobs. The PP-981 is available with a ramp (LP version) or without a ramp (HP version).
