Manufacturing products is one thing and carrying them safely to the consumers is other. To do this job, there are many types of packaging machines out there. One such type is shrink tunnel machines. These help in industrial shrink wrap, which protects and groups your products during shipment.
For those who do not know, a shrink wrap film is plastic and, when gets heated, it shrinks ( as the name suggests) and conforms to the products’ shapes. Well, this helps to protect your products from dirt, moisture, and any possible damage in transport.
Shrink packaging is something that is there, as a proven and well-established process, for more than three decades now. And, the said tunnel machines has proved to be the best equipment to do this kind of packaging due to their fast process, consistency and cost-effective advantages.
This tunnel machine is a recirculated hot air chamber sitting on top of a conveyor which carries the product through the chamber. The crucial needs of a good shrink tunnel are – a constant, yet an adjustable air temperature & conveyor speed along with symmetrical air circulation pattern.
Once the product is completely wrapped, the plastic film covering it needs to be shrunk to complete the process. Though many people use a number of methods for shrinking such as handheld gas, fully automated room size ovens, electric hot air blowers, and more. However, nothing can give you the results that Shrink Tunnel machines are capable of.
Several types of these machines are available for satisfying the varied needs of different companies that use shrink wrap. As the pack comes out of the hot chamber, the film just cools and shrinks a bit more, which tightens the pack into a much stable and easily handled unit. These machines do a great job; however, it is essential you bring a quality one from a reputed company.
