Packaging equipment is used to wrap, seal, and package your
products to ready them for shipment. Whether your operation requires a case
erector and sealer to rapidly seal boxes, or a heat tunnel to apply a
professional plastic seal to your packaging, American Surplus Inc. is here to
help. We also carry used stretch wrappers to secure entire pallet loads with
There are many advantages to utilizing packaging equipment in your facility. It will help automate your packaging process, which will cut down on time and manual labor. Case sealers and strapping machines use a very consistent amount of tape each time, which will cut down on your material costs. A case sealer can seal up to 15 boxes per minute, which is significantly faster than doing it by hand. We also carry used case erectors which can rapidly assemble boxes, and this can be synced up with the case sealers.
For full pallets of products, we carry a variety of used
stretch wrappers, which stretch plastic film around a loaded pallet. Stretch
wrappers improve stability of products on pallets and protect them from dust
and debris. The three main types of stretch wrapper are manual, semi-automatic,
and automatic. The type of stretch wrapper that is right for your application
depends on your shipping volumes and frequency of shipments.
The more high-volume shipments you have going out, the more likely your facility could benefit from an automatic or semi-automatic stretch wrapper. If your operation is small or you do not frequently have full pallets to ship, a manual stretch wrapper might be more fitting. When making this decision, be forward thinking and try to forecast where your company will be in five years. A manual stretch wrapper might be enough for today, or the next two years, but a few years down the road you might have to replace it with a semi or fully automatic setup to meet your shipping needs anyway. You should always consider upgrading now and saving money in the long run, as this applies to many different types of material handling equipment.
