Interchangeable grippers pick up products of various sizes and shapes. An intermittent- or continuous-motion bundler operating at speeds to 120 bundles/min uses a conveyor to transport product through sealing and shrinking steps. A case packer stages cases under pneumatically controlled flippers that hold the flaps open and guide shrink-wrapped product into the cases.
