Safer wrapping from Wessex

Wessex Packaging is launching a stretch wrapping system, SafeStretch, with an ergonomic handle, and an automatic tensioning system which means that the operator is saved from bending and twisting his or her back while applying tension to the stretch film around pallets.

The company says that with existing hand held pallet wrappers, the operator must bend and twist the back while applying tension to the stretch film.

With the new product, the operator remains in a straight position, and the chance of back injury is greatly reduced.
