VARO introduce the Pallet Unwrapper

Featured Product News

The Pallet Unwrapper – one of few missing links in today’s automated factories, the system accepts pallets at its base then measures them, cuts through the wrapping without harming the contents, and finally removes the wrapping for recycling.

VARO’s revolutionary unwrapping solution, the Pallet Unwrapper, can gently remove the stretch film wrapped around pallets. The stretch film is gently but accurately cut and removed fully automatically. This is done without the need for human operation or interaction. It’s therefore the right choice for production companies that deal with unstable products and receive a large number of pallets every day.

The Pallet Unwrapper is available in 3 configurations: The Unwrapper Cut: for simple cutting of the wrapping film. The Unwrapper Core: for the cutting and removal of wrapping film, and the Unwrapper Control: for the cutting and removal of wrapping film for unstable products.

Fast: High capacity, fully automatic multi-shift operation without breaks

Careful: Unwrapping without damage to the pallet goods

Safe: No more risk of injury for employees

Flexible: Easy integration into existing lines or use as stand-alone unit – quickly contributes to an effective flow

10 reasons you should automate your pallet unwrapping process:

The FMCG (Fast-Moving Consumer Goods) industry is known for its fast-paced nature, high volume production, and quick turnover of products. In such an industry, not automating processes can pose several risks and challenges as well as loss of profit. Here are some of the key risks of not automating the pallet unwrapping process:

Film Breakage: The film used to wrap the pallet may break during unwrapping, leading to instability and potential damage to the products.

Inefficient or Slow Unwrapping: If the pallet unwrapping process is slow or inefficient, it results in decreased productivity and increased labor costs.

Product Damage: Improper unwrapping techniques or equipment can cause damage to the products on the pallet, such as scratches, dents, or breakage.

Worker Safety: Manual pallet unwrapping can pose safety risks to workers, especially if they are required to use sharp blades, excessive force or repetitive motions.

Film Residue: In some cases, the wrapping film may leave behind residue on the pallet or products, which can be unsightly or cause contamination concerns.

Inconsistent Tension: Uneven or inconsistent tension during unwrapping can lead to pallet instability, making it more susceptible to tipping or shifting.

Difficulty in Film Removal: Some pallet wrapping methods or equipment may make it challenging to remove the film after unwrapping, causing inconvenience and potential delays.

Environmental Impact: If the wrapping film used for pallets is not effectively recycled, it causes waste and environmental concerns

Lack of Automation: Manual unwrapping processes can be time-consuming and labor-intensive, limiting productivity and efficiency in warehouse operations.

Cost of Consumables: Excessive or inefficient use of wrapping film can lead to increased material costs over time, impacting the overall profitability of the pallet unwrapping process.
