We often write about the benefits of stretch wrappers that let operators stay on their forklifts and when people get our message, sometimes we can't help sharing it!
Many companies use forklifts to move pallet loads of product around their shipping areas or warehouses. While forklifts are a necessary component of successful warehouse operations, they can cause injuries.
You save it…especially when it comes to labor costs.
People are expensive, but they’re worth it, as long as their time is spent in productive activities. Stretch wrapping by hand, watching a load spin while it’s being wrapped, and climbing on and off a forklift to cut film or press “start” don’t qualify. Neither does the time it takes to move a load from the wrapper to a freestanding platform scale. All of that is time wasted and money lost.
When searching for the perfect stretch wrapper, you’re likely faced with an overwhelming amount of machine choices. For a lot of people, it’s important to buy a high-quality machine. High quality means the machine is safe, easy-to-use and requires minimal maintenance. But people shouldn't forget about getting the most value out of a machine and the features that make it efficient.
Companies report about 95,000 injuries related to forklift accidents each year, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
