Are You Experiencing These 5 Common Shrink Packaging Issues?
Changes in Productivity Between Packaging Shifts
High Shrink Film Re-wraps
High Shrink Film Usage
High Shrink Wrapper Downtime
High Labour Costs
1. Changes in Productivity Between Packaging Shift
Keeps a recipe record of all the adjustment parameters (electrical, mechanical and shrink film).
Any shift will operate the machine the same and achieve the same desired results.
Understand the previous shift’s events and activities with production timers (stopped/running/waiting for the product) and a fault log.
3. High Shrink Film Usage
The form-fill-seal design creates a tube of shrink film around the product and then seals either side with the continuous motion end seal.
Less film is required to create the shrink film tube
The winder design allows for smaller width film scrap tails to be pulled/wound.
4. High Shrink Wrapper Downtime
The Triumph 2 is equipped with minimal maintenance components
Easy tool-less adjustments for main elements of the shrink wrapper
Touchscreen alerts the operator of an issue and how to fix it
Reliable hot knife side sealer for maximum performance
Allen Bradley controls
5. High Labour Costs
Easy setup – 25 recipe design
Past pack recipes can be changed over and run in under five minutes.
All parameters for products are stored and recalled prior to changeovers
More film footage on a roll equals less film roll changeovers during a shift
