How to Stretch Wrap a Skid

The Perfect Skid Wrap

Stretch wrapping skids correctly can prevent product damage and eliminate lost items during shipping.

These boxes were first secured with stretch wrap. Corner blocks and a stretch roping technique were added for further support. Additional stretch wrap was applied to connect the boxes to the skid thus providing a tight and secured wrap.

Comparing Semi-Automatic and Manual Stretch Wrapping

Semi automatic and automatic stretch wrapping machines provide several advantages to a manual stretch wrapper. Semi and automatic stretch wrappers will provide a consistent, professional wrap, save in stretch film cost while preventing common workplace injuries associated with manual-hand wrapping.

If you are you spending more than $600 per month in hand stretch film or if your stretch wrapper more than 3 years old, you may be throwing away more than 50% of your stretch film. Pyramid Packaging sells and supports the Arpac pallet stretch wrapping machines. The ARPAC stretch wrappers minimize your stretch film usage to cut your material costs in half!

For more information about our pallet stretch wrappers and how they can save you money on stretch film, contact Pyramid Packaging at 847.272.3400 or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Advantages of a Case Erector – Sealing Machine

As your business expands and orders grow so will the demands on your shipping department. An automatic case erector (also know as a carton sealing, case former) packaging machine is a great way to improve the efficiency of your packaging – shipping department.

A case erector – sealing machine will automatically erect and seal corrugated cardboard boxes. Cardboard sheets are loaded into the machine’s hopper and the machine will erect the box and seal its bottom. This case erector is designed to form and bottom-seal corrugated boxes at speeds up to 15 cases per minute. The shipping department then packs its contents, seals the top of the box and its ready for shipping. This automatic process saves time, allowing you to keep pace with your shipping/packaging demands.

Pyramid Packaging is a Chicagoland distributor of the LoveShaw case erector – sealing machines. For more information, contact Pyramid Packaging at 847.272.3400 or click here for a quote on your packaging machinery needs.

Skin Packaging Machine Demo

Skin packaging also known as skin boarding is a common packaging process. During the skin packaging sealing process, packaged items are laid on top of a board and covered with a plastic film. The film is heated and air is vacuumed out leaving a tight seal between the film and its backing. The tight seal secures the packaged items and prevents it from being damaged during shipping. After the skin process, the backing can be cut to a specific shape. Often with skin packaging, a hole is usually added to the backing so it can hang from a hook.
