SpinoWraptor
SpinoWraptor Wrapping machines have been
identified as the worlds best wrapping machines
because of their programming capabilities at the
user level. They also have the best pre-stretch
system which does reduce the amount of film used
to wrap pallets. As wrap technology improves
SpinoWraptor will be able to pre-stretch wrap to
500 while other current machines on the market
will only achieve 300. Current wrap technology
will allow a 200 pre-stretch. The machine is
complete with a host of safety features and
operator protection which meets or exceeds
Australian OHS requirements. The machine is CE
compliant. "CE" is a certification process for
the manufacture of machines and electrical items
which come from Europe specifically. A "CE"
certified product like the SpinoWraptor Pallet
Wrapper, means that it is compliant with very
stringent rules for manufacture and testing in
Europe. "CE" is fully recognised by the relevant
authorities in Australia. Below is a link to a
site which talks about CE markings. http//www.ee

Introduction
Early 2007 WRS approached Smithfield warehouse to
trial pallet wrapping technology supplied by
Propak Industries. A loan unit was installed at
the warehouse and testing begun. The unit was a
single pallet unit. Smithfield team did
comparisons between this unit and other units on
the market. It was determined that a unit with
feed in and out roller bed systems would be best
suited for the volume of work at Smithfield.

Introduction
Finalists for the installation where Chep and
WRS/Propak. WRS/Propak won the business due to
technological superiority and cost. On
installation further technological improvements
where made resulting in a superior solution than
at first expected but for the same price.

Cost Benefits
Following figures are based on the use of 20um
wrap. Labour is based on 18 per hour. Hand
Wrapping Average use is 300 grams per wrap. Cost
per wrap 1.05. Average labour 4 minutes per
pallet to wrap. Cost per wrap 1.20. Number of
injuries per year hand wrapping? Cost per
wrap? Total Cost per pallet 2.25. WRS/Propak
Offer WRS/Propak was able to supply a superior
machine resulting in significant savings per
pallet wrapped. DHL will own the machine after 5
years. Service 24/7 warranty 3 years

Productivity Benefits
Automatic Processing Removes the need to have
operators starting the wrapper, progress the
wrapper to next step or any other manual
intervention apart from wrap reloading. Also
reduces waste issues such as tailing on wrap and
over wrapping. The use of this wrapper allows
the operator to remain on a fork and wrap and put
away multiple pallets without leaving the
forklift. Timing has shown that a hand wrap will
take 4 minutes not including time to then move
the product. Using this system we have been able
to achieve 4 pallets wrapped with 2 put away and
an additional 2 loaded for wrapping within 10
minutes. This will be variable dependant to put
away distance and staging distance from
wrapper. Pre-programming allows up to 8 wrap
types for different pallet requirements for
example storage verses transport. Reduces reset
time on different wrap requirements.
13
Productivity Benefits
Automatic Start When a pallet is placed on the
in-feed conveyor the machine senses when the
forklift has exited the area before allowing the
pallet to move to the turntable. The sensor
which is built into the conveyor will not allow
any pallet movement until the forklift is 1 (one)
metre away from the sensor. Additional protection
is by programmable time delay after the sensor
tells the machine that the pallet can move as the
operator is out of the way.
14
Productivity Benefits
Fully Automatic operation. The complete cycle
of pallet wrapping is fully automatic Step 1
The operator places an unwrapped pallet on the
in-feed conveyor. Step 2 When the turntable is
free the pallet moves automatically to the
turntable. Step 3 The pallet is fully
wrapped When the pallet is on the turntable the
following actions are also fully automatic. Film
attachment to the pallet Cutting of the film
after wrapping Sealing with heat. A
feature of the sealing system is that film tails
are eliminated.
15
Productivity Benefits
Fully Automatic operation. Step 4 After
the pallet is wrapped and the out-feed conveyor
is empty the wrapped pallet automatically
proceeds to the out-feed conveyor. Step 5 The
operator removes the wrapped pallet from the
out-feed conveyor Step 6 The next process
starts automatically. The wrapped pallet moves to
the out-feed conveyor and the unwrapped pallet
moves onto the turntable for wrapping. It is
normal to have 3 pallets on the machine at one
time. One unwrapped, one being wrapped and one
wrapped.
16
Productivity Benefits
Programmable Wrapping Styles The machine can
have 8 different named pallet wrapping programs
which manage the wrapping. The programs can
set the number of top and bottom wraps, the
wrapping speed and amount of film stretch applied
to the pallet. This optimises load containment
using the minimum amount of film. This area is
protected by a password control so that optimum
wrapping is maintained, and only reset by
authorised personnel.
17
Productivity Benefits
Other Features Automatic height detection of
pallet allows different height pallets to be
wrapped. Wrapping of inboard pallets. The
machines film attachment method allows loads that
are inside the pallet base to be
wrapped. Pallet counter on the machine
provides accurate counting of pallets wrapped per
day, per week, per year. Allows trend
management.
18
Safety Benefits
Operator Safety All forklift drivers are able
to remain on their forklifts, as the pallet
wrapper is fully automatic. The machine is
complete with a host of safety features and
operator protection which meets or exceeds
Australian OHS requirements. The machine is CE
compliant. Critical areas are protected by
electronic sensors which prevent machine
operation while personnel are in the danger
zones. An emergency stop is triggered by
operating a lanyard which is positioned across
the front of the machine. While a roll of film
is being replaced in the machine the machine
cannot be operated.
19
Safety Benefits
Operator Safety Roll carriage inside the mast
all moving parts inside the mast Roll
changeover made at waist height reduces the
potential for back injury. Warning Light
flashing when in operation. Warning signs
fitted.
20
Other Features
Environmentally responsible film consumption
per pallet can be calculated by the machine. This
is an indication of pallets per roll. This
machine has shown a significant reduction in film
consumption due to the finite control over film
pre-stretch. The environmental benefits include
less waste to be disposed of at the receivers end
Lock-out of programs Password protection of
wrapping programs. Many of the safety features
and automated features on the wraptor actually
reduce the chance of damage to the machine thus
reducing service calls and prolonging the life of
the machine. For example pallets cannot be loaded
directly onto the turntable. This removes the
chance of damaging the wrap applicator equipment.
21
General Comments
The SpinoWraptor Trans T3 has achieved the
following Eliminated the need for hand pallet
wrapping, which has meant more consistent
wrapping and better load containment. . Large
exposure to back injury associated with hand
wrapping has been eliminated. Improved
productivity and reduced bottlenecks in the area.
This machine has shown a significant
reduction in film consumption due to the finite
control over film pre-stretch. The
environmental benefits include less waste to be
disposed of at the receivers end. Load
stability has improved significantly Saved
floor space that was previously used for
staging.
22
General Comments
The SpinoWraptor Trans T3 has achieved the
following Full Training on Installation
provided Easy to operate Operates on 240volt
standard power outlet. WRS maintains and
services the machine for 5 years. WRS/Propak
have been very proactive with ensuring our
experience has been positive. This machine
fulfils and exceeds our expectations.
