What is a shrink wrapping machine?

A shrink wrapping machine (also called a heat shrink packaging machine) is a piece of equipment that wraps products tightly in plastic film. The machine applies heat to the film so that it shrinks, fitting snugly around the products. This creates a secure barrier to protect your items from dust, moisture and contaminants.

There are three main steps to shrink wrapping: sealing, shrinking, and cooling. First, the machine seals the film around the product using heat or pressure. Then it applies heat evenly to the wrapped product, which makes the film shrink to tightly enclose the contents. Lastly, the film cools down which solidifies the seal and ensures the packaging maintains its shape.

How do I choose the right shrink wrapper?

To get the right shrink wrapping machine for your business you need to be clear about your specific requirements. What is the size, shape, and quantity of products you’ll be wrapping? Are you packing individual items only or larger groups?

Typically you will need an L-Bar Sealer to seal your product in film, then a heat tunnel to shrink the wrap around it securely. We do offer all in one machines that combine both into one chamber. These are slower but require less manual handling. L-bar & Tunnel combo machines are best when you need to maximise efficiency.The best way to be sure you will get the right shrink wrapper for your products is to talk to us. Our local NZ packaging specialists will talk you through the options so you can choose the best option for your budget and business goals.
