Sample Video Transcript

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

A palletizer automatically layers and stacks products onto pallets based on specifications from programmable software that takes into account the product dimensions and weight for optimum use of pallet area. A loaded pallet is then moved by a vehicle or conveyor to a stretch wrapper that secures the products to each other and to the pallet with layers of clear film. The palletized products are then labeled and ready for shipping.
