For businesses, the machinery used in production is, most of the time, the most significant monetary investment and a critical component of business operation. Consistent and efficient running of this machinery is of utmost importance for the business outcome and company reputation.
Maripak USA team was at the PACK EXPO International in Chicago from October 23rd through the 26th. Back after four years, the show housed over 2,200 exhibitors and 44,000 attendees from all over the world, it is safe to say that PACK EXPO International was the first time in 2022 that the entire industry came together.
We took our place at the Eurasia Packaging Fair, Turkey’s most significant and one of the world’s biggest packaging fairs. The fair attracted more than 1100 companies and 72.000 visitors from 13 countries. The attention to our booth was at a record high.
Shrink Wrapping or Shrink Packaging is the process of wrapping products with plastic film, cutting and sealing the film via a sealing blade or wire, then applying heat via a heat tunnel so the film takes the shape of the product. For this process to produce a perfect package, parameters must be set specific to the product. These are shrinking film type, quality and size, machine temperature, heat tunnel air velocity, and the number of perforation holes.
As Maripak Packaging Solutions we believe that the children are our future and all have equal rights to care, protection and education. However, we know that there are millions of children across the globe who do not share the same privileges their peers have access to. This is why we are a proud owner of “UNICEF Platinum Wings” working together with UNICEF in their quest to reach and support disadvantaged children.
Shrink wrapping is one of today’s most common secondary packaging techniques. It is widely used all around the world for packaging needs including maximizing shelf appeal, protection from external factors, bundling and multi-packaging to ease transport and storage, and last but not least tamper-proofing. This wide array of functionality makes it an excellent option for almost all industries from food to cosmetics or even boats and construction materials.
Why Invest In an Automated E-Commerce Packaging Solution?
Automated E-commerce packaging machines may seem quite costly at first sight. However, when hidden costs of manual packaging is analyzed and compared to the savings from reduced labor costs, higher throughput, and improved productivity the investment pays for itself.
Shrink Packaging and Its Benefits
Shrinking or Shrink Packaging is the process of wrapping any single product or group of products with plastic film, then applying heat via a heat tunnel so the film takes the shape of the product. It is commonly applied as secondary packaging. Without the application of heat, the packaging stays loose around the product and this is called polywrapping.
What is Shrink Wrapping?
Shrink wraps are made up of polymer plastic which tightly covers any object on the application of heat. A shrink machine is used to apply heat to these wraps. These are light in weight and can be used to wrap any material. The heavier versions of these wraps are used for industrial purposes. They are used to cover large equipment, large construction scaffoldings such as those used in the construction of bridges and buildings, helicopters, and other big vehicles. Shrink wraps are also used for storage purposes.
