The Mechanics of Shrink Wrap Machines / Sealers

The basic operation of shrink wrap machines involves several stages, facilitated by various technical components:


The Sealing Arm or Wire - This component cuts and seals the shrink film around the product.


The Film Roll - This is the source of shrink film fed into the machine.


The Conveyor System - The product covered in film moves on this system towards the shrink tunnel.


The Shrink Tunnel - Heat in this tunnel causes the film to contract, fitting snugly around the product.


The machine then releases the shrink-wrapped product, ready for storage or transport.
