Evolution Validation - Case Studies
Its not the machine, its the film.
Lets say your customer decides to get the Chevy truck of the industry,
Solid machine. About $8500, new.
Then, lets say the choose a very good film, a resin enhanced 63gauge/16micron,
like our XL 16. Great film.
I just introduced a machine into a facility last week, replacing
the 63g film and a machine, that would not run our XP, Prestretched
film, well, if at all.
It took 73 cents more of the 16m/63g film, to wrap a pallet, than
the XP film applied.
In your customer's case, a $50K mistake !!!!
Look at 5 years out. 50 pallets / day x 5 days x 51 weeks x 5 years
x.70 $44,600. Oh yeah, they bought a machine for another $8k.....$52K
Buy 5 pallets of the XP film, and we'll ship the machine along at
Think you can sell that?!
I understand you are looking for more info on our Evolution Wrappeing
Machine, and the current promotion of a machine w/ an order of 5
pallets of film.
A few things I've noticed, particularly common about the Beer/Wine/Beverage
Distributors where we've introduced machines:
Less film used, w/ Machine, than previous hand applied, by about
Faster wrapping, once incorporated into the timeline/system.
Tighter wrapped pallets...Less damaged loads.
The tighter wrapping, alleviating a lot of fallen pallets, seems
to be the biggest advantage, that gets reported back to me. Saves
drivers a lot of time out on the road from restacking and salvaging
Let me know what else I can offer.
We will be showing
our Evolution Machine and the XP film series at Southpack in Charlotte
next Tues and Wednesday. I'd love the opportunity to explain the
Program... 5 skids of film gets a machine at NO CHARGE, NO STRINGS.
I guess I just did.
But, its the XP Film that makes the opportunity possible. IF, a
company uses 20 skids of film a year, say using a good, latest technology
63gauge/16micron film, those 20 skids would have the same yield
as 13 or 14 skids of the XP. Yes, the XP costs about 10% more....
BUT, if 30-40% less film is used, AND wrapped even tighter, one
can see where the "win-win" lays.
I hope you'll come to the Show, and our Booth #2011. If not, then
let's get together after the show, so I can explain the Program
in a more detailed manner. Most get hung up on a "free machine".
That's not the opportunity for the end-user... its the opportunity
to spend 40,50, even 75 cents less on every pallet wrapped and going
out the door.
I just placed a machine in a facility wrapping 100-120 pallets a
day. We used 70 cents less film to wrap, and had 30% more strength,
force-to-load. That will SAVE them $17k, annually.
The Machine, Free, No Charge, or even purchased, is a minor factor
in the bigger picture. It is just a tool, a very heavy, stable,
efficient one, but just a tool, that uses very effective film.
Just wanted to reach out to you and let you know that after having
your Evolution wrap machine using XP Pre-Stretched film for close
to 2 years, we are very satisfied with its performance. One of my
biggest concerns overseeing our night crew is giving them reliable
and consistent tools to make their job as efficient as possible.
Quite honestly, I don’t want them coming to me complaining about
a machine that doesn’t work. Mission Accomplished!
This current configuration is fast, uses much less stretch film
due to its strength, and the machine is dependable. We also love
the technical support we get when, at a minimum, is needed.
Continue to use us as a reference for future business. We are very
satisfied and would like to help out fellow wholesalers as you see
Wulftecs running XP Engineered stretch film
Facility had 2 Wulftecs, Model MF150,nice machines.
All makes-models with prestretch heads leave the factory with a
base, mechanized stretch. 150 and 200% are the most common.
the tension control on all the machines slows the speed the rollers
turn relative to the spinning load or the carriage around the load
on an orbiting machine.
Typically at full tension, the film only stretched to a max 250-275%.
In this case, they attained 225%.
The total for our XP was over 325%, with what we do in Calhoun plus
what came off of machine.
They applied 11oz and 15psi with current 16mic. The XP applied 6.25oz,

engineered film hands down.
