The YPS range of Wide Shrink Wrap Machines have been specially designed to wrap large and heavy packs with ease. With a wide inline shrink wrap machine, the product is simply placed onto the conveyor belt and easily driven through the machine under its own weight where a push action typical of a side feed heat sealer is not required.
The main features of our wide shrink-wrap machines include:
- Easy shrink film loading.
- Upgraded conveyor belts for heavy products.
- Heavy duty proven sealing system for thick gauge shrink film.
- Bespoke design for specific product requirements.
Heat-sealing machine widths can go anything up to three metres wide and the shrink film alone would weigh in excess of 100kg. Most standard inline machines operate with the top web of film located at a higher level than the bottom roll. This is usually fine because it’s easily handled, however as the roll gets wider and heavier, this becomes more of an issue from a health and safety perspective. For this reason we utilise a floor mounted system for the top roll of plastic film on their wide shrink wrap machines which eliminates the need to lift the roll any higher than is necessary.
Our sealing system comprises of a heavy duty Teflon coated sealing blade, the design of which has not changed in over 40 years. This provides the best system for obtaining a strong ‘fin’ seal, especially on very thick polythene shrink wrap over 100mu which wide systems tend to use.
Minimal day-to-day maintenance is required to maintain peak performance. YPS blades will last for 10-15 years in normal operation as long as they are not cleaned with anything abrasive.
We’re proud to say that over 40 per cent of our business each year comes from returning customers who have been delighted with both the machine they received and the first-class support offered.
