Heat Shrink Wrapping Machine
Heat shrink wrapping machines are designed to be used with innovative packaging materials made of polymer plastic, also known as shrink wrap, to shrink tightly to a product when heated. Shrink wrappers are commonly used for wrapping items such as food, beverages, books and other merchandise but can also be used to store seasonal clothes and prevent them from getting damaged by humidity and dust.
Shrink wrappers are widely used to label products, decorate packaging, protect industrialised concrete, seal objects such as electrical wires, and wrap books and magazines for protection. Shrink wrapping machines provide heat to the shrink wrap in heat shrink packaging, making it easy for you to wrap your products securely. If you want to save storage space at your retail stores and protect your products from damage, try our shrink wrapping machines for the best results.
At PACKMACHINE, we offer high-quality shrink wrapping machines and shrink wrappers at the cheapest rates. You can contact our customer service team to learn more about shrink wrappers.
Why use shrink wrapping machines?
The key function of shrink wrapping is to:
- Protect against dust, dirt and moisture
- Prolong shelf life
- Combine multiple units in a single bundle to facilitate handling, transport and storage
- Make products tamper proof
- Enhance the presentation of retail products
- Overwrap cartons, trays, bottles and other forms of primary packaging
- A stronger alternative to stretch wrapping
Shrink wrap also holds its shape very well, so products always look their best, which is a critical consideration for consumer products. It clearly shows if there has been any interference or tampering, an issue of prime importance for cheese, meats, prepared meals and pharmaceuticals, as well as bundles of currency or sensitive documents.
Compared to cardboard and plastic, shrink wrap is very space-efficient, taking up no more room in storage, transport or on the shelf than the products themselves. It is also lighter, so it is easier and less costly to handle and transport. It is suitable for products or groups of products of all kinds, shapes and sizes. It is often used for groups of bottles or cans, or to combine products in a multipack.
Shrink wrap is often used for transit wrapping and protective packaging for larger items, such as doors or even bricks on a pallet. It is also used to wrap and protect scaffolding, roofs, cars, vans, boats and loaded pallets.
A further key advantage is that shrink wrap machinery and materials are relatively low-cost. Smaller producers and operations can use simple shrink wrap machines with limited outlay, using either manual or semi-automatic processes. Higher investment allows for fully automatic systems, with savings on labour and the avoidance of tedious and repetitive manual work.
Who uses shrink wrapping?
The great versatility of shrink wrap gives it a role in a wide range of packaging uses in consumer-facing and industrial sectors, including:
- Fresh food and dairy
- Processed food
- Household products
- Personal care
- Machinery and tools
- Building products
- Games and entertainment
- Print and paper

Fully Automatic Shrink Wrap Machine
A fully automatic packaging shrink wrap machine begins with an output rate of 25-30 packs per minute and moves up to and beyond 100 packs per minute. This removes direct operator involvement whilst maintaining enough flexibility to be customized for most shrink pack profiles.Check out all of our Fully Automatic Shrink Wrap Machine
L-Sealer Shrink Wrappers
L Sealing Shrink Wrappers are the optimal shrink film applicator for smaller product sizes. A heated arm is raised and lowered as products pass underneath. Shrink film is then heated and sealed around the product. This ensures the proper amount of shrink film is applied to each product.Check out all of our L-Sealer Shrink Wrappers
Shrink tunnels are the heart of shrink wrap systems. Shrink tunnels move products along conveyor systems while maintaining an even consistent temperature. This improves the shrink wrap process allowing for equal wrap application around the entire product.Check out all of our Shrink Tunnels
Shrink Sleeve Wrappers
Shrink sleeve wrappers use a horizontal sealing arm to wrap trays of products like cans. A shrink sleeve wrappers is a great secondary packaging application for finished products ready for unitization.Check out all of our Shrink Sleeve Wrappers
