Aetna Group has supplied McKechnie Plastic Components with the latest Rotoplat 507 to wrap products that can range from small, irregular shaped items to big, heavy parts at its site in North Yorkshire.

The company's plastic components are palletised prior to transportation, so the pallet wrapper has to be both flexible and reliable. A typical output is 150-200 pallets/day, 7 days a week.

The company has found that having preprogrammable wrappers, which can store a variety of information, has improved the palletising process, and it says that the power prestretch is saving up to 60% on film use. The reliability of the wrappers helps avoid bottlenecks in the warehouse, and the wrapper can be moved easily by forklift.
