The new Bio-Wrapper is said to be the world's first shrink-wrapper series built specifically for use with biodegradable, compostable PLA shrink film. The series was developed to accommodate the lower shrink temperatures of PLA and can produce both total-closure (form/fill/seal) retail packs and bullseye wraps for distribution applications. The machine uses EarthFirst(R) brand PLA film from Plastic Suppliers, Inc., made from NatureWorks LLC's PLA resin. Features of the machine include the ability to produce ultra-high-clarity shrink wraps in nearly any product configuration and an all-stainless-steel construction for easy cleaning. The Bio-Wrapper is engineered as a complete unit with a double-insulated shrink tunnel that is said to reduce energy consumption.
