Our One-Step shrink wrappers eliminate the traditional “L” sealer and tunnel for a manual operation. The most economical method of shrink-wrapping around the world is now available in North America

Bundlers are distinguishable from other shrink wrapping equipment as these machines produce packages with an opening on both ends of the product (often called “bull’s eyes”) and those openings can act as handles.

L Sealers create a bag around a product using centerfolded shrink film. They can cut and seal shrink film to many different sizes depending on the L Sealer you are using. The L Sealers are equipped with a film separator, a film roller with twin perforating hole punchers & a film guide.

Breweries - LCBO

Ontario Craft Breweries Packaging Standards

According to new LCBO legislation, all beer trays must be shrink-wrapped in a very specific manner. The film must be recyclable, of a certain thickness, and applied so as to avoid contaminate entry and for security purposes. The LCBO Product Packaging Standards and Chemical Guidelines can be found here.

The new legislation poses a problem, especially for local micro-breweries with less resources, as the process of choosing, installing and servicing a shrink packaging machine requires a certain expertise. Impak Packaging Systems Inc. is a company that has more than 30 years of experience in the packaging realm. We are constantly in the pursuit of the perfect package, and we have succeeded at reaching this goal with many well known companies, and even some fellow Ontario Craft Breweries: Big Rig Brewery, Sawdust Brewery, Sleeping Giant Brewery, as well as Solo Cup, Starbucks, Canadian Tire and Quaker.

What may seem mundane to you—optimal plastic film thickness, perfect seal wire temperature, exact conveyor speed—is exactly what we pride ourselves in doing well. We can, and will, ensure that your package meets all the above requirements, while maximizing efficiency and minimizing cost. We have the capability of handling production demands small and large, from microbreweries producing small batches, to large breweries producing thousands of bottles a day.

We offer new and used packaging machines, for rent and for purchase, and we will recommend one that suits your application best. We are the leading distributors of Cryovac shrink films in Canada. We will also recommend a high-quality shrink film and make the proper adjustments to the machine to ensure peak performance.
