Rotary Arm Stretch Wrappers


Unlike a turntable machine that rotates the pallet, a rotary arm stretch wrapper revolves around a still pallet while the stretch film is being applied. A rotary arm stretch wrap machine allows you to drive up to the machine and lay the pallet on the ground, eliminating the need to load the machine using a pallet jack. Rotary arm stretch wrappers can either be semi-automatic or automatic. Rotary arm stretch wrappers are ideal when you have a lot of open floor space.

Best Application:

Since the load remains stationary, they are ideal for wrapping tall, very heavy, or unstable loads.

Space Required:

(Approx.) Length: 12ft | Width: 9ft | Height: 10ft

Types of Rotary Arm Stretch Wrappers


  • Requires no operator intervention.
  • Automatic rotary arm stretch wrappers have a mechanical film clamp and film wipe.
  • Floor loaded machines can wrap up to 40 loads per hour.


  • There is no film clamp and film wipe.
  • At the end of the wrap cycle, an operator is required to manually cut the film and wipe the film tail against the load.
  • Wraps up to 25 loads per hour as it takes a bit more time to load and unload a semi-automatic machine. 


  • Used in conjunction with the rest of the packaging line to automatically cycle loads through the line for increased output and efficiency.
  • Most if not all conveyorized machines are fully- automatic and can wrap up to 100 loads per hour.
