Engineered with Single Roll Lap Seal Technology, the 596S Continuum Shrink Wrapper utilizes servo motion to adjust speed according to product flow, maintaining a continuous motion with speeds of up to 80 trays per minute. The shrink wrapper features a PLC control system, with operator interfaces for both the tray and shrink functions, as well as a smaller interface at the shrink cut to assist in set-up. Precise film cutting is done with a simple rotating blade and is controlled by a servo system. The dual film reel holder contains a spare roll that is easily accessible for fast film reloading. The shrink wrapper is also available with optional printed film registration. Infeed for the shrink wrapper can be easily integrated with a 296 Continuum Tray Packer discharge.
