TAB Industries Patents Stretch Wrap Dispensing System

Reading, PA: Orbital wrapper manufacturer TAB Industries, LLC, Reading, Pa. (, has earned another patent for an advance in stretch wrapping. Following a patent earned for the development of its TAB Wrapper Tornado orbital stretch wrapper machine, the latest patent awarded as U.S. Patent No. 11,066,198 B2 recognizes the development of a novel stretch film dispenser for orbital wrapping machines. This patented dispensing system automatically applies tension to the stretch wrap as it is applied around the pallet and pallet load to stabilize the cargo faster and use less stretch wrap than previously possible with other stretch wrapping machines or by manual hand-wrapping.

Applied on the TAB Wrapper Tornado line of orbital wrappers, the patented stretch wrap dispenser sets the film roll within a circular ring assembly to dispense the stretch wrap around a horizontal axis as it rotates 360 degrees around and under the pallet and load. The innovation allows pallet loads to be stretch wrapped as secure, unitized loads in one minute or less by one worker versus approximately 15 minutes with multiple workers using other wrapping approaches.

The patent names TAB Industries President Tom Brizek and Vice President Sales and Marketing Andrew Brizek as Inventors. The TAB Wrapper Tornado orbital wrappers with the stretch wrap dispensing system are designed and manufactured at the company’s Reading, Pa. headquarters and delivered ready to operate with a full warranty.
