Standard-Knapp, a manufacturer of packaging machinery, has introduced the 596S Continuum Shrink Wrapper. Standard-Knapp bills the new machine as a "continuous motion shrink wrapper," saying that the wrapper uses servo motion to adjust its speed according product flow. It can operate at speeds up to 80 trays per minute.
The 596S Continuum Shrink Wrapper is designed to handle PET, glass, and metal containers. It is ideal for applications in the food, beverage, and household product industries, according to the company.
Standard-Knapp says that because the 596S Continuum Shrink Wrapper is engineered with Single Roll Lap Seal Technology, it provides a low-maintenance alternative to shrink wrappers with traditional mechanical seal bars. The 596S Continuum Shrink Wrapper features a PLC control system, with operator interfaces for both the tray and shrink functions, as well as a smaller interface at the shrink cut to assist in set-up. The film is cut by a simple rotating blade, which is controlled by a servo system. The wrapper has a dual film reel holder that contains a spare roll of film. This makes it easier to reload the film fast.
