A-Arm Semi-automatic Pallet Wrapper
Advanced, Automatic, Affordable.
The A-Arm LP-SWA is a semi-automatic pallet wrapper with fully automatic features. It can be controlled by a wireless remote. This high-performance machine is safe and simple, it has an advanced cut and hold device meaning there is less film slippage and a consistent stretch. There is no need for the operator to attach or cut the film, minimising the amount of risk and maximising performance.
The A-Arm wraps pallets in a unique way, it starts and ends the pallet wrap at the top of the load. By starting and stopping the wrapping process at the top of the machine, the problem of dragging film tail is eliminated and the load is stabilised early in the wrap cycle.
The A-Arm Semi-automatic pallet wrapper has three separate wrap modes: automatic spiral wrapping, automatic top banding, semi-automatic, effectively giving you three machines in one. This innovative machine uses only AC motors. Using no air compressors or pneumatic elements means the machine is almost silent to run. The heavy duty surround deck has both front and back forklift ports, allowing for easy maneuverability. The A-Arm’s high performance means you can wrap up to 40 loads an hour, depending on the size and weight of each load. The A-Arm LP-SWA is the only machine that can perform a fully automatic top banding process making it a machine ahead of its time. This machine is energy efficient due to the low voltage needed to power it making it cost effective and affordable.
Difference between a semi and a fully automatic pallet wrapper
A Semi-automatic pallet wrapper can only produce a low volume of wrapped loads per hour. This is due to the time wasted between each pallet being wrapped. The operator is responsible for attaching the film, starting the machine and detaching and securing the film tail to the load, this is a lot of unnecessary labour. A fully automatic pallet wrapper, means there is no need for an operator, except to load the film. The machine begins wrapping the load immediately, no time is wasted attaching the film. The automatic pallet wrapper uses height sensing photo eye technology to tell the film carriage how high to wrap the load. To finish the cycle the fully automatic pallet wrapper will automatically detach the film tail which is then either brushed away or heat sealed to the load.
Benefits of a fully automatic pallet wrapper
There are several benefits of having a fully automatic machine, rather than a semi automatic machine. A fully automatic machine saves you time, money and labour. It is easy and simple to use with reduced operator intervention. You drive the product onto the turntable, the machine wraps your load and you drive off allowing for a much faster pallet wrapping process. So your productivity increases!
Loads / Day, Attach & Cut Film Time, Days / Year, Hourly Rate, Annual Savings
25, x 2.5 mins, x 260, x £12, £3250
50, x 2.5 mins, x 260, x £12, £6500

The A-Arm LP-SWA is CE Certified and is shown to be both energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Due to the powered pre-stretch on the machine you can reduce the amount of film used. The A-Arm has a fixed stretch capacity of 33% to 313%, this means you use a lot less film than usual, saving you more money. This fixed stretch capacity allows you to produce 4 metres of wrapping from only one metre of film!
