It simply doesn’t make sense to wrap a pallet of goods with stretch wrap, whilst the operator is pulling on the film to stretch it, and walk backwards at the same time. It invites strains, aches and trip hazards.
It’s far easier and safer to load the pallet onto the Rapid Wrapper, hold the film dispenser, push the foot switch, and let the powered turntable do the hard work, whilst the operator tensions the film and overlaps it as required. SHE/HE can also pass the film under the corners of the pallet, for a more secure load.Get in touch

Rapid Wrapper is around half the price of basic masted semi auto stretch wrap machines. It is perfect for small businesses and as a stand by for larger businesses for when their expensive stretch wrappers fail, and they have to wait for them to be repaired.
When not required, the notched fork sleeves enable the Rapid Wrapper to be stowed on pallet racking, with no fear of falling off. The cables can be unplugged, so there are no trailing cables to worry about. This enables the best use of your work space. Bring down the wrapper only when you need it!
With no mast, there is no limit to the size of the load to be wrapped, so long lengths of pipe, or pallets full of bumper bars present no problem to the Rapid Wrapper.
Pack King have added another feature to it’s very popular Rapid Wrapper Stretch Wrapper. It now has the ability to be moved around using a standard width hand pallet truck. It can be loaded using a straddle truck or forklift. At only 268mm high and with a 1220mm diameter chequer plate turntable, the Rapid Wrapper is ready to go as soon as you plug in your extension lead from the 240v mains socket and plug in the 24v foot control.
At a steady 8rpm, your load is rotated whilst you pay out the stretch film onto the load using a braked hand film dispenser – even under the corners for maximum strength. Stopping at the top and applying a top cover, will ensure the load is weather proofed. Notches in the base frame allow you to stow the Rapid Wrapper on your pallet racking when not required (with no trailing cables), allowing use of your expensive floor space. Shipped in a sturdy crate with top and front screwed access panels, makes for a guaranteed pristine product, with a simple lift out and go action. Perfect for small to medium businesses and larger ones needing an instant stand in if their expensive auto machine goes down.
Are masted stretch wrappers expensive?
A recent study by Pack King, found that for many businesses, a masted Stretch Wrap Machine, masked hidden costs, that could be robbing you of hundreds, even thousands of dollars each year.
For those businesses who absolutely must have a masted wrapper due to load height and volumes, then so be it, but for low volume and reasonable load height users and those contemplating a new stretch wrapper, think on this.
A masted stretch wrapper takes up 3.6 Mtrs square of warehouse real estate, costing anywhere between $600.00 to $850.00 per year. It also takes up the same space as a double bay of racking, where 6 pallets could have been stored (more if your warehouse is higher), so the opportunity cost of losing 6 pallet spaces plus a few hundred dollars per year, mounts up, but if the business can use the Pack King Rapid Wrapper that takes up only 1.5 Mtrs square when in use, then you have gained six pallet storage spaces.
The Rapid Wrapper can be moved using a hand pallet truck, so it can be taken close to the work station in order to minimize forklift travel distance, remembering that the less distance the forklift travels, the safer and more productive it is. It may also be cheaper and safer to provide a walkie stacker in the packing area, in order to raise, lower and move pallets to a zone where the forklift can operate, thus separating workers from forklifts.
Optionally the Rapid Wrapper with a pallet on top, can serve as your direct loading and stretch wrapping work station in one. You can even rotate the turntable for easier and faster stacking. This eliminates the need to move pallets twice.
Given the fact that most operators put two or three pallets down first in order to prevent bending, the Rapid Wrapper at a height of 286mm performs the same function.
The other benefit is that when stretch wrapping, the operator can start the film at a height to incorporate the bottom of the pallet. The load can be further bound to the pallet by passing the film under the corners of the pallet during rotation, whereas a masted stretch wrapper starts the first film run at least half way up the pallet, so that any sudden stop by the carrier could push the load off the pallet.
At around half the price of a decent masted wrapper, the Rapid Wrapper offers low cost, versatility, space saving and full utilization of your existing expensive warehouse space. When your floor space is required for other activities, the Rapid Wrapper has a notched base that allows it to be safely stowed on pallet racking, plus fully removable plugs so there are no trailing cables. The 24v foot control allows the 1500mm diameter chequer plate turntable to rotate any load up to 2 tonnes at a comfortable 8 rpm (doing all the hard work), whilst the operator stands with the film dispenser, tensioning and overlapping the film as required. A top cover can be wrapped into the load for complete weather and dust protection if required.
