A shrink wrapper - or sleeve wrapper - is used in productions where products must be shrink wrapped. Film is wrapped around the products, then welded and shrunk.
Meurer's Filmline CBM shrink wrapper is a unique and flexible machine. The latest generation of shrink wrappers based on 40 years of experience. The machines are modular, which makes it easier to adapt the machine when production is to be changed over to run new products.
The film is pre-stretched in the machine before it is shrunk, which results in film savings of 10-15% compared to similar products. It also means that instead of a large shrink tunnel, lateral fan heaters may be used. This significantly reduces energy consumption. The use of the latest servo technology also ensures high energy efficiency.
The Meurer Filmline CBM film wrapper uses the following types of film; PE, PP, PVC shrink film or PE stretch film.
CM/FL Filmline (CBM)Short description
MEURER - FILMLINEHow it works
The film is wrapped around the item inside the welding station, and as the item is pushed through the sealing bars, a cylinder descends to hold down on the top film as well as the item. The upper and under film are welded together, and all the package needs now is a slight shrink to close up the sides neatly. This method results in film savings of approx. 10-15% and a significant reduction in power consumption, as the shrink tunnel is reduced to a minimum.
The product infeed may be lateral, inline or high speed with chain drive.
