... or pretty well anything else that might be produced in a manual or automated process, and put on a pallet for transport.
"Pallet" wrappers are designed to partially or completely automate the process of "wrapping" these "loads" with inexpensive and easy to manage "plastic". Common terms for this load containment material are "Hand Wrap", "Machine Wrap", "Plastic Wrap" and "Stretch Film".
Products contained for transport in this way (aka. unitization or load containment) are much more likely to maintain load integrity during transport, and arrive intact at their destination ... reducing or eliminating transportation damage. In fact, many transport carriers will not accept pallet loads of product like this unless they are wrapped.
- theft deterrence
- dust protection
- weather proofing
- the ability to fully automate the packaging process
Many other types of automated wrapping are also possible ... even though the product is not on a pallet.
"Door and Window" wrappers are a common variant of the typical turntable style semi-automatic machine when coupled with a load holding top platen.
Other things such as:
- bundles of pipe
- plastic extrusions
can be wrapped with a horizontal ring wrapper (aka. orbital wrapper).

- paper tissue
- rolls of material
can be cocoon wrapped in a process that combines a stretch wrapper with a load roller.
