However, they are more expensive than individual wrappers, so you should research and decide if you need a custom operator.

The first step in creating an edible bale wrap is to test its safety. First of all, it must be resistant to moisture and rodents. If it is too moist, it’s best to wrap the bale in the net first. Then, wrap it with plastic. It should also keep out sunlight and moisture. Plastic film is not completely impermeable to oxygen, so it should be as thick as possible. Using plastic film, use eight layers, while six layers are better.

An in-line bale wrap  is best for high-volume producers. It takes a single bale and wraps it in several layers of cling-wrap plastic film. This type of bale wrapper eliminates the need for an extra hand while wrapping. Plus, it saves on plastic wrap costs. So, it’s a good choice for anyone who wants to save money!
