Wrapping Requirements

Ensuring you have a wrapping machine that can handle your specific needs is a must!

Think about the type and size of items you will need to wrap and consider the dimensions, weight and shape of your products, to select a wrapping machine that will do the job well.

Gordian Strapping is a leading supplier of the latest wrapping machines. Our expert team will be happy to find a wrapping machine that meets your needs.

Wrapping Method

It’s vital to choose a machine that can support the wrapping method you use.

It could be that you need a machine that can handle shrink wrapping, stretch wrapping, or wrapping using paper. Choose a machine that is successful at handling your chosen wrapping method for best quality results and ease of use.


When it comes to choosing the right wrapping machine, it’s essential to consider your production volumes, the product type being wrapped, what you want the film to achieve and the speed at which you need to wrap your pallets.

To ensure your operations run smoothly, look for a wrapping machine with the necessary speed and capacity to handle your workload effectively. This way you can keep things running at a pace that suits your business needs.


It’s important to get a machine that is worth the investment, so judge the quality of the machine and if it is built to last.

A reliable wrapping machine should be built to withstand heavy use and operate consistently without frequent breakdowns. Choosing a durable high-quality machine for full peace of mind.

Ease of Use

You won’t want to delay wrapping by spending excessive amounts of time trying to get to grips with an overly complicated machine.

Look for a wrapping machine that is user-friendly with intuitive controls, that comes with clear instructions to save time and minimise errors.

Maintenance and Support

It’s worth looking into the maintenance requirements of the machine and whether the supplier will provide adequate customer support.

Other key things to check are if spare parts are readily available and if there are service technicians who can assist you when needed.

You’ll find Gordian Strapping offers a comprehensive service from installation through to maintenance of our complete wrapping machine range. Our nationwide team of skilled mobile engineers carry most spare parts in their vehicles, giving them the flexibility to quickly provide the necessary repair service directly onsite to minimise disruption.

Reviews and Recommendations

Reading customer reviews and asking for recommendations from industry professionals who have experience with wrapping machines, is one of the best ways to work out if the machine you are looking at is a wise choice.  

Their insights can provide valuable information about the reliability and performance of different machines, so you can get the best wrapping machine for your business.


If you have specific requirements or unique products to wrap, check if the machine can be customised or adjusted to meet your needs.

Gordian Strapping can customise your machinery to your packaging needs, whether it is a smaller arch that is required or a slower application speed. Our experienced team will support you through the whole process and get the right machine for you.
