Everything about bundle wrappers

If you’re searching for a cost-effective way and aesthetic look to wrap your products, Bundle Wrappers, also known as Sleeve Wrappers, offer a brilliant solution. 

These machines are designed to bundle products together, such as bottles, cans, and boxes, and then apply a protective sleeve or film around them. They are commonly used in industries such as food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, and logistics to enhance the efficiency of packaging processes. 

How Do Bundle Wrappers Work?

product grouping
Bundle wrappers operate by conveying products into the packaging area, where they are grouped into bundles.

The machine then applies a shrink film, creating a protective sleeve around the bundled products. Then it seals the edges of the film together to create a pouch around the product.
The bundle goes through a shrink tunnel to ensure the containment with intense heating. The film gets compressed and attached to the bundle of product and strengthened while cooling down.

Key Features to Consider

1. Film Type

Consider how thick the Shrink film should be and width of it. The poly shrink film is used for bundle wrappers. Various thickness options are available, ranging from 1 mil to 4 mil, allowing you to choose the desired thickness for your needs. You can select a thickness depending on the weight of the bundle you want to wrap. The most common shrink film is 2.5 mil which is the LCBO requirement for tall can cases.

The width of the shrink film should be chosen to adequately cover the entire bundle. Measure the dimensions of your bundle and ensure the film’s width can comfortably accommodate it. 

2. Speed and Capacity

Think about how many bundles you intend to produce in an hour. Understanding your desired production rate will help you select a machine that can meet your output goals efficiently. Determine how many products will be packed in one bundle and the weight of the bundle. It is crucial in assessing the machine’s capability to handle the necessary volume. 

3. Automation Level

Evaluate the level of automation you need, ranging from manual to fully automatic Bundle Wrappers. The choice of automation level should align with your production volume, the level of operator involvement you prefer, and the overall efficiency you aim to achieve in your packaging process. 

4. Space and Energy Efficiency

Determine the available space in your facility and choose a machine that fits seamlessly. Additionally, opt for energy-efficient models to reduce operational costs.
