What is Shrink It Right?
The Shrink It Right program works with clients to audit and review their existing shrink wrap practices, materials and equipment. The program will identify areas of inefficiency and offers improvements to increase productivity and reduce per pack costs. The Shrink It Right program has helped a wide variety of clients from e-commerce fulfillment centers to food processors. Through the Shrink It Right program our clients have realized savings of up to 30%.
Most shrink wrap setups are able to get it right initially, but as time progresses very few are able to keep it right. This is due to the substantial benefits that are offered by state of the art film and equipment technologies. Our Packaging Specialists perform an in-depth review and audit of your existing shrink film packaging solution. This audit identifies optimization areas that increase packaging speeds and improve shrink wrap standards. This is done through the improvement of the shrink wrapping process that reduce labour and waste while improving throughput and overall shrink wrap productivity. This can involve the addition of automated packaging processes, improved film use or the optimization of the shrink bag size.

Shrink Wrap Machines
Shrink Wrapping is a process that involves the application of temperature-sensitive films. When heat is applied to the film it shrinks tightly to whatever it is covering. Shrink wrapping equipment is available for a variety of product sizes and in both automatic and semi-automatic formats.
Shrink Bundling machines use a horizontal sealing arm to wrap trays of products such as cans of soda. A Shrink Bundler is a great secondary packaging application for finished products ready for unitization.
Automatic Form-Fill-Seal machines are high-speed, continuous motion shrink packers. A conveyor system moves products through the machine while mechanical arms trim and seal the shrink film. The continuous pace allows for faster pack times and infeed systems ensure the right amount of shrink film is applied.
Shrink tunnels are the heart of shrink wrap systems. Shrink tunnels move products along conveyor systems while maintaining an even, consistent temperature. This improves the shrink wrap process allowing for equal wrap application around the entire product.
1. Increased Efficiency
2. Reduced Labour Costs
Recent advances in shrink film manufacturing and technology have made the standards of 5 or 10 years ago obsolete. New shrink wrap film technologies today are providing substantial cost savings and higher quality finished products. Environmentally friendly shrink wrapping helps businesses reduce their carbon footprint through proper film sizing and reducing film waste. We have the solutions and staff that produce real results and open up a range of cost savings to your operation.
