The American Packaging Machinery (APM) Bottom Overlap Shrink Bundling Systems support production speeds up to 180 wraps per minute with minimal changeover. Perfect for industrial, contract packaging, printing and fulfillment, electronics, confectionery and baking, food products, health and beauty, pharmaceutical, and personal care markets. Specific examples include disposable dinnerware, fresh vegetables and other food products such as, beverages and pizza.
For consistency, from design to assembly, all engineering and manufacturing are done in-house and are made in the USA. All APM machine components are designed with longevity and reliability in mind. Also, to provide gentle handling for each application, both the product handling and transfer are also handled in-house.
All shrink wrapping systems are designed to accommodate options for open sides, natural film enclosure, or complete film enclosure (using positive side seal devices). To provide reduced heat loss and maintain operator safety the APM shrink wrapper systems are equipped with a five-inch thick mineral block insulated tunnel chamber. Standard models come with a heavy-duty welded tubular steel frame to provide a solid base and absorb and deflect vibration. If needed, a stainless steel frame is also available.
APM "Intuitive Operator Controls" allow for very easy setup and change over. All systems meet the Category 3 and 4 safety protocols. The one piece, solid, hardened steel, bar (fully coated) and the electronic motion controls helps eliminate extra parts and helps to provide a long-life and minimal maintenance. To provide "easy" access to parts for maintenance, the shrink tunnel design mounts the heat source, blowers and motors, at the bottom of the chamber.
