The XT Cut and Clamp® cuts the film at the end of the wrap cycle. The XT then holds the film and attaches it to the next load. When using the XT, your drivers can stay on their forklift as the load is wrapped, giving them the opportunity to do something more productive and return to a load that is ready to be picked up.
The XT Cut and Clamp® can help:
Operators who are using forklifts to transport loads to and from the stretch wrapper must dismount to start the wrap cycle, then remount the forklift to take the wrapped load away. If following all necessary safety measures, this 21 step process can take up to two minutes. What’s worse is that most operators stand next to the machine, doing nothing, as the load is being wrapped – adding another two minutes of unproductive time.
The XT Cut and Clamp can save about two minutes of labor per load by keeping drivers on their forklifts. Two minutes may not sound like a lot, but for a company wrapping 80 loads a day and paying their employees $15 per hour, those two minutes account for about $10,000* annually (it only costs about $5,000 to add the XT Cut and Clamp to a semi-automatic stretch wrapper). Over a 7 year economic life of the machine, that is a savings of almost $70,000!
*80 loads/day x 2 minutes = 160 minutes/60 = 2.667 hours x $15 = $40 x 250 working days in a year = $10,000
Lantech offers two different styles of semi-automatic stretch wrappers that can be customized with hundreds of options to fit any application.
