Challenges we have uncovered to stretch wrapping single-use PET bottles, such as water bottles:
Reducing primary packaging materials create loads that are unstable and fragile.
The “slosh” factor. Water weight shifts suddenly and constantly when picked up by a forklift or when in-transit. This causes an uneven weight distribution that leads to loads sliding or shifting off the pallet.
Film breaks or product crushing causes operators to tweak stretch wrapper settings, resulting in inconsistent and ineffective stretch wrapping.
Film tails tend to get caught in downstream equipment, causing downtime for highly automated facilities.
After defining the challenges associated with wrapping single-use PET bottles, we created three resources that define what a safe-to-ship beverage load is and how Lantech features help achieve it.
