Shrink wrapping means covering products with shrink film. These films can be either clear or printed. They form a cover around your item which is sealed using heat. Heat is applied around the product by using automatic shrink wrap machine. But do you know how does a shrink wrap machine work?
How does a shrink wrap machine work?
How a shrink wrap machine operates depends on the type of shrink wrapping machine involved. The three significant kinds of shrink wrapping machines are the chamber sealer, the L shrink wrap machine, and a side sealer.
 How does a shrink wrap machine work
1. A chamber sealer puts the product with the shrink wrap film through a compartment, or chamber, where the shrink wrap is ready to be wrapped around the product. The compartment is heated, so the shrink wrap then compresses, surrounding the product and forming a protective layer.
2. An L bar shrink wrap machine is specifically designed for larger volumes of shrink wrap. The machine has two sealing bars, which make a backwards L. The shrink film folds along these bars to create a pocket through the crease of the fold for your products to enter. Once your product is placed in that crease, the other three sides of the shrink film need to be sealed. The shrink wrapper detects when a product is entirely in the machine to know when to wrap your items with shrink film before pushing it further down the production line. then heats up the wrap until it tightly fits around product.
3. Wrap products in a continuous tube of film, sealing one side of the package then separating individual units downstream through a cross seal.
