Understanding Shrinking Tunnels in the Exapro Packaging Machinery Marketplace

At Exapro, we connect professionals with top-tier industrial machinery solutions. Within our extensive offerings, the category of Packaging and Conditioning includes essential equipment such as Shrinking Tunnels. Let’s explore what these machines entail, their importance, and why Exapro is the ideal marketplace for buying or selling them.

What are Shrinking Tunnels?

Shrinking tunnels are specialized machines used in the packaging industry to apply shrink wrap around products. These machines use heat to shrink plastic film tightly over items, providing a secure and tamper-evident seal. Shrinking tunnels are commonly used for packaging food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and various consumer goods. The shrinking process not only protects products but also enhances their appearance and shelf life.

Types of Shrinking Tunnels

  1. Electric Shrinking Tunnels: Use electric heaters to generate the necessary heat for shrinking the film.
  2. Steam Shrinking Tunnels: Use steam to apply heat, often used for packaging sensitive products that require gentle handling.
  3. Infrared Shrinking Tunnels: Use infrared heaters for precise and efficient heating, suitable for various types of shrink films.
  4. Convection Shrinking Tunnels: Use hot air circulation to evenly distribute heat around the product, ensuring uniform shrinkage.
  5. Combination Shrinking Tunnels: Combine multiple heating methods to provide optimal shrinkage for different packaging needs.
