The packaging world revolves around the use of plastic film. The new or used bagging equipment that incorporates this material into packaging comes in many designs and functions. One use of the film is bagging and wrapping product.
The different types of shrink wrapping Machines and equipment that Berks Plant Design handles are:
Vertical Form Fill Seal Equipment and Horizontal Form Fill Seal Machines
To fill the envelope these machines use pumps for liquid, scales for individual items and augers or cups for powders or granular medias. These machines can also be hand fed. Production rates vary widely from a few pieces per minute up to 100’s per minute. These machines come in fully automatic and semi-automatic versions and usually have a shrink tunnel offered with them that will match the speed of the machine.A very cost effective way of packaging if you can justify the machine cost.
Automatic L-Bar Sealer Equipment and Semi-Automatic L-Bar Sealers Machines
L-Bar Sealers use a folded shrink material in which the operator manually places the product into a pocket with two sides sealed and feeds that filled across a seal bar which seals material from the open two sides. Excess material is trimmed at this point. That package is then run through a shrink tunnel to produce a tightly encapsulated finished product. L-Bar Sealers come in fully automatic and semi-automatic versions and usually have a shrink tunnel offered with them that will match the speed of the machine.
