Mode of Operation
The system operation begins when products (broad-side leading) transfer from the customer’s production line onto the in-feed pacing conveyor of the wrapper. This in-feed pacing conveyor will create the required pacing of the products for the wrapping cycle.
The trays will now intersect the film web and pass through the seal frame. When the trailing edge of the product passes through the seal frame the seal bars will close and follow the product. The dwell timer times out and the seal bars open forming a sleeve of film around the product. The sleeved product then conveys into and through the tunnel chamber tunnel where the combination of heat and air flow shrink the film sleeve around the product to form a tight neat package. The bundle now exits the tunnel and passes through a three-way air cooling section and transfers onto the customer's conveyor to complete the shrink overwrap packaging cycle.
