Intermittent-Motion Bottom Seal Shrink Wrapping System

The HCF Series intermittent motion horizontal shrink wrapper is ideal for overwrapping large industrial products where full enclosure is required. Reaching speeds up to 15 packages per minute, the HCF Series wrapper operates on-demand as product is placed on the infeed conveyor. Product is then conveyed through a film forming head which engulfs the product in film while creating a bottom overlap seal along the length of the product.

A set of seal bars then creates a cross seal. An optional bottom seal produces positive thermal seal.

The HCF Series is available with a variety of optional infeeds to accommodate a wide range of product sizes. An optional HVP4/488 stand-alone shrink tunnel completes the system.
