Precisionrap : cost-effective and efficient solution

Precisionrap has a two-part handheld dispenser, which allows ergonomic stretch wrap usage. Aside from less intensity of labour, Precisionrap also offers several key advantages over traditional hand pallet wrapping techniques:

Film Efficiency: Precisionrap consumes less film by weight compared to traditional methods. Based on a cut and weigh test by rewrapping a pallet with Precisionrap and comparing film weights, customers can reduce their film consumption by a minimum of 35%.

Improved Load Containment: According to the force-to-load measurement, Precisionrap significantly enhances load containment, exerting up to 50% more force on the load to maintain its integrity compared to traditional hand-wrapping techniques.

Faster Wrapping: With Precisionrap, you can wrap a typical load 33% faster than with manual hand wrapping. Precisionrap streamlines the process without compromising on wrapping quality.

Consistent Containment: Precisionrap ensures consistency and containment with its snapback test. This test measures the film’s ability to recover to its pre-applied length after being cut vertically. Precisionrap consistently achieves greater and more consistent snapback and load containment compared to traditional hand-wrapped pallets, regardless of the operator.

Biodegrading process of Stretch Films

3 Steps of Assimilation
Precisionrap DK is a plastic based film that has additives included in the manufacturing process. These additives, usually enzymes, enable the plastic to break down.
Step 1.
After 2 years of stable shelf-life, Precisionrap DK starts the chemical reaction begins causing the film to assimilate and attract micro-organisms that consume the carbon.
Step 2.
When the film breaks down by oxidative degradation, it simply turns into smaller pieces of plastic. A low molecular mass oxidation products are established.
Step 3.
With abundance of UV rays, heat, and micro-organisms, the film will be bio-degraded in the ocean or buried landfill. At the end of the process, which takes 6 to 24 months, only a little bit of CO2, H2O and biomass remain.

Can You Rent a Shrink Wrap Machine?

If your business is looking for packaging solutions that are both efficient and budget-friendly, the idea of embracing a shrink wrap machine may have crossed your mind. But let’s face it, it’s a big investment. If you’re still doubtful to dive into machine ownership or if your product is giving you the “shrinking” feeling about its compatibility with a shrink wrap machine, there’s the other options: machine rental!

If you are intrigued by the notion of renting one of these shrink wrap machines, consider this article your trusty co-pilot. Let’s dive into the different finance options of a shrink wrap machinery and which one will suit your needs.

Exploring Payment Options of Shrink Wrap Machine

When it comes to securing a shrink packaging machine, there’s 5 payment and ownership options to consider. Impak Packaging is partnered with several finance companies for better financing experience of yours.

So, whether you’re in for a short fling, a long-term commitment, or ready to go steady, there’s a payment path that suits your needs.

1. Rent/ Rent-To-Own

Renting lets you borrow the machine for shorter spans, like 4-6 months, depending on your situation. This choice suits for seasonal goods or fresh projects. Meanwhile, the Rent-To-Own program is like the best of both worlds. You can channel the rental fees toward eventually owning the machine.

2. Lease / Lease-To-Own

Leasing steps up the game by offering longer borrowing periods—think more than 6 months to years. And here’s the kicker: Lease-To-Own enters the stage. It’s like giving you a pass to the machine ownership after the leasing period. Great for those who want to test the waters before fully diving in.

3. Ownership

The “just take the plunge” option. If you’re confident about your machine usage, you can buy it outright.
Plus, there’s no need to play all your cards at once; installment plans and financing options through various financial companies make this a dynamic choice too.

The Popular Shrink Wrap Machines to Rent

If your product is not too big and small quantity, hood sealer is perfect for entry level shrink wrapping. There’s no need to purchase a heat shrink tunnel, as this is a one step solution to shrink wrapper products.
Our semi-automatic L Bar Sealers are the perfect machines for low to medium volume shrink applications. An operator sets the seal time and heat, then inserts a product between the two layers of center-folded shrink film, then presses down on the sealing bar. Once the seal is complete, the package is pulled away from the seal area.

Automatic L-bar sealers are perfect for center-folded shrink-wrap applications, where speed is a factor. They use center-folded shrink film, a conveyor feeds the product into the film and into the sealing area. Vertical/horizontal photocell sensors determine when to activate the jaw sealer. Once the product is sealed, a conveyor automatically feeds the sealed product into a shrink tunnel.

Bundle wrapper use two rolls of shrink film to create a sleeve that encircle items that can be packaged together used as a bundle. This bundle is introduced into the sleeve wrapper where sealing head come down behind it and seals the film. And it is conveyed to a heat shrink tunnel where the shrink film binds the items together.

Side Sealers are continuous motion horizontal sealers designed to wrap packages effortlessly and efficiently. Side Sealers are the fastest type of sealers which is suitable for wrapping box type packaging.

Shrink Tunnels are used with sealers to apply heat to the film so the film shrinks perfectly around the product. They can come in two different conveyor configurations: Roller or Belted. Both conveyors can be used with polyolefin, PVC sleeves, and polyethylene films. The space between these rollers allows hot air from the bottom to shrink the film around the product to create a tight sealed package.
