This alternative to traditional shrink wrappers uses servomotion to adjust speed according to product flow, thus maintaining continuous motion at speeds up to 80 trays/min. The PLC has operator interfaces for both tray and shrink functions, as well as a smaller interface at the shrink cut to aid setup. A servocontrolled, rotating blade cuts film. The dual-film reel holder contains a spare roll accessible for film loading. Optional printed film registration is available.
