Used Shrink Equipment

Looking for a used shrink wrap machine for sale?  You’ve come to the right place.

Shrink wrapping equipment or shrink packaging equipment is designed to package products or packages within a film that is subsequently heat shrunk around the product or package to create a very tight seal with the package.

Shrink wrapping is sometimes used as the primary packaging. Some individual foods, soaps and other products may be wrapped directly. More commonly shrink wrapping is used as a secondary or tertiary packaging. An example of secondary use is shrink wrapped six-packs of beverage cans or 24 pack bundles of water.

Wrapping is also commonly used as a tertiary packaging such as overwrapping an individual carton or bundle of cartons. In the past, appearance of the tertiary packaging has not been considered critical important as the customer never saw it. The rise of club stores like Costco and Sam’s Club has changed this. The 6 pack of canned corn is now the unit of sale in these stores and appearance has become critical to branding. Previously translucent grey film was fine since nobody outside of the stockroom was likely to see it. Now, glossy film with registered graphics is needed to catch the customer’s eye using bullseye or end seal wrapping. This affects the choices of machinery that can be used.

One important consideration when selecting the proper a shrink packaging machine is the type of shrink package that is desired around the product. L-bar sealer shrink packaging equipment forms a film seal around a product that has three side seams, one the front of the package and one on each side of the package. Flow thru shrink packaging equipment forms a shrink film package from a single roll of shrink film that has an overlapped shrink film seal underneath the package and a cross seal on the front and back sides of the package. Shrink bundler packaging equipment forms a shrink film package around the product from two rolls of shrink film which has cross seam across the front and back sides of the package and openings in the film package on the left and right sides of the package.

Once a product has been wrapped in shrink film, the product passes through a heat shrink tunnel. The heat from the heat shrink tunnel causes the film to shrink around the product forming a tight package around the product.
