Shrink wrappers

Article-Shrink wrappers

The new, simpler, smaller and cheaper CLEAR-PRINT 24-in. to 32-in. shrink-wrapper series no longer cuts the film in advance. The CLEAR PRINT perforates (patent-pending) the film precisely on the print-registration mark, or to the needed length on random-print and clear film. The web is continuous throughout and is being perforated in the immediate vicinity of the conveyor and on the product. As a consequence, lack of rigidity (with films under 2 mil) and static electricity are no longer a concern, the co. says. The new system eliminates the need for a knife to cut the film and a vacuum belt to pull forward the individual pieces of film. Available infeed modules include flood feed for round products, a divider for square products and side infeed for smaller products. Single-lane machines can perform up to 60 wraps/min, while dual-lane machines can operate at double that speed.
