We’re all struggling with labor shortages. And in today’s world, the need to quickly get more product out the door has never been greater. Automating your operations with Lantech packaging equipment allows you to meet increases in demand,
despite the diminishing labor pool.
Here are some important points to consider:
Avoid the “Runaround”
The XT Cut and Clamp® cuts the film at the end
of the wrap cycle, holds the film, and then attaches it to
the next load. Reduce potential employee injury
and increase productivity by 2 minutes per load.
(Available on some semi-automatic stretch wrappers)
Wrap and Weigh In One Easy Step
Weighing your load eliminates expensive freight fines
and helps you spot incomplete loads before they ship.
The EZ Weigh™ also eliminates 30 seconds up to
1 1/2 minutes of wasted labor when moving a load from
a stretch wrapper to a separate scale.
(Available as on option on semi-automatic stretch wrappers)

Keep Your Products Safe
These days, none of us can afford even one damaged load, so getting products to their final destination in as-made condition is crucial.
Eliminating product damage is our mission. As such, our machines have been designed with exclusive features and options that are proven to protect your product and create safe-to-ship loads, every time.
Locks your Load to the Pallet and Avoids Punctures from Forks
Pallet Grip® rolls the bottom film web into a tight cable, then drives that cable down just below the top boards of the pallet, avoiding punctures to film caused by fork trucks. This solid bond keeps your products from sliding off the pallet during shipment.

Improves Uptime, Wrap Quality and Reduces Film Breaks
The Load Seeking Clamp’s® unique design keeps film from pulling out of the clamp, and eliminates long or dragging film tails that can be caught in downstream equipment. It also allows for consistent containment force from the bottom to the top of the load.
(Available on most L-Series Automatic stretch wrappers)
Wrap with 2x the Force While Reducing Film Breaks and Load Crushing
This latest advancement in film delivery system technology provides precision film application to the load, eliminating load twisting and crushing, and delivers double the wrap force per revolution of film.

A Patented Control System That Creates, Maintains and Delivers Safe-to-Ship Loads
Load Guardian minimizes operator interaction and eliminates the guess work for stretch wrapping any load configuration. The system intuitively guides users through the load profile creation process and saves it for later use, providing knowable and repeatable results.
(Available on L-Series Semi-Automatic and Automatic stretch wrappers)
Produces Perfect 90 Degree Angled Corners Without Jamming
Lantech’s case, tray and lid equipment provide 100% precise control through the entire forming process, resulting in perfectly square boxes, every time. Square boxes pack, stack and protect your product better.

Keep Your People Safe
A company’s most essential resource is its people, so health and safety are some of the most important factors at any worksite. Injuries and the risk of illness in the workplace not only impacts your employees, but it can also damage your business financially. Thus, operator safety has always been a central element in the design of Lantech equipment.
Here are a few ways Lantech packaging equipment can keep your people safe:
Maintain Social Distancing
Well placed equipment can help you easily manage physical distancing between workers.
Reduce Workplace Injuries
Automating manual processes will eliminate the risk for repetitive strain injuries.
Easy to Clean
Certain features on machine models reduce the number of contact points that operators touch, making cleaning easier.
Keep Your Current Workforce Safe
Bringing in temporary workers while COVID concerns are still high can be challenging. Limit unnecessary personnel by adding automation to your processes.
