Did you know that a typical stretchwrapper will consume more than 10 times its original cost in consumable material over the life of the stretchwrapper? So what is more important, the stretchwrapper's original cost or how effectively it consumes stretchwrap film?
At Motion Controls Robotics, we believe both features are important. That is why we have selected Highlight Industries, Inc. as our supplier of choice for stretchwrapper equipment. We carefully analyzed different stretchwrapper designs for our robotic automation projects, looked at the mechanical design of their equipment, evaluated up-front cost and after market support, met with their customer service and support personnel, and reached the conclusion that Highlight's stretchwrappers are the best value on the market.
Highlight Industries is the market leader in testing of stretchwrap film; in fact, stretchwrapper companies from around the world purchase film testing equipment from them. This expertise in film design and capabilities has allowed them to maximize film utilization and reduce film consumption over the life of the stretchwrappers they supply.
As an example, one customer had a palletizing operation that was using 4 rolls of film per day. After switching to the Highlight Freedom 6500 stretchwrapper, they are now using 50% less film. As a result they are now saving over $12,540 per year in film in 2010 dollars - a number that is likely to grow as petroleum based products cost escalate over time.
If you have another stretchwrapper company you would prefer to purchase from we are capable and willing to work with them. If you are looking for a stretchwrapper that combines the lowest total cost of ownership with lower up-front cost and heavier duty construction, we recommend any of the quality stretchwrappers from Highlight Industries' complete line of stretchwrapping equipment.
