There are various types of shrink wrapping machines on the market. Finding the right equipment can be complicated. Different configurations include L-bar, side seal, lap seal, top trim and vertical seal. There are also several customizable product wrapping machines for specialty applications. A semiautomatic shrink wrapping machine will require some manual control, but will greatly reduce labor time and costs while providing more accurate and consistent shrink wrapping results.
Packaging lines with medium- to high-volume quantities will want to consider a fully automated shrink wrapping machine. These are designed to handle increased volumes and keep your production line moving as efficiently as possible. Automated wrapping machines are easy to configure and can be manually or automatically adjusted to accommodate different sizes and materials. Most machines have rapid-adjustment capabilities built right into the system. You’ll be able to automate product grouping, bundle forming and heat shrinking with minimal oversight. It is important to select the right automatic shrink wrapping machine for your specific production quantity and application(s).
