The Brief

Probably the most popular shrink wrapping system and utilised by many food, drink and other product packaging operations across the world. In this case study our customer is one of the UK’s leading jam and sweet spread manufacturers and came to us with a requirement to produce a compact machine to wrap catering sized packs of jam which in this case, were to be hand loaded onto the machine. In most cases this would be an automatic feed from an upline system

The Solution

Using technology and knowledge gained from over 50 years in the industry, we produced a machine in a Monobloc form i.e. built on a single frame. The footprint requirement was relatively small and the speed requirements suited to a smaller footprint machine.

Built with it’s ‘big sister’ in mind (our high speed sleeve wrapping machine) this machine has all the robust versatility but on a smaller scale. In addition the customer required a bespoke film loading system for this project.

The machine features;

  • Compact design
  • Mitsubishi PLC
  • Push button or HMI control
  • Straightforward film loading system
  • Constantly heated sealing blade
  • Inverter controlled belts throughout
  • Energy efficient shrink tunnel
  • Up to 15 packs per minute

The Outcome

The trials progressed really well and the customer is delighted with the result.
