Skin Packaging Machines
Used Skin Packaging Equipment
Skin packaging equipment is designed to create a tight package around a product from a plastic film. The package created by skin packaging equipment is very tight to the shape of the product, or skin tight. Skin packaging equipment places product on top of a card or tray. The product is then over-wrapped with skin packaging film. A skin film is drawn tight to the product by drawing air out of the package through the use of a vacuum.Skin packaging machines are designed with different levels of automation. The simplest skin packaging machines require operators to load the product onto the tray or card, pull the skin packaging film over the product and tray, activate the machine cycle, and discharge the skin package from the machine. More automatic skin packaging equipment can perform additional steps in the skin packaging process automatically. The level of automation of the skin packaging necessary for the application is dependent upon the application, the output required of the skin packaging machine, and other application specifications.
