The fact is manufacturers of today have got to do all that they can to keep costs under control, and one of the ways that many are doing this is by reducing packaging costs by using the services of the most up to date shrink wrap machine and the various PVC film and other wrapping films that are currently available. The present day wrapping machines, also referred to as portable supersealers, I-bar sealers, bar sealers, shrink sealers, centerfolded shrink wrap sealers and portable shrink packaging, are generally very easy to use. Making use of hand held heat guns and manual sealers, the machines are incredibly easy to use and almost no training.

Though light enough to be man portable, these machines are strong, sturdy and well made enough to wrap, seal and package for years and years. Furthermore, these machines are light enough to be portable and set up just about anywhere where they can be plugged in; in fact, once they have been unpacked and plugged in they are ready to start working. It is also good that they have highly adjustable heat controls so that they can handle a wide range of film wrappings with a wide range of temperature activation points. Coming in stock sizes from 13 inches to 40 inches these powerful wrapping machines are extremely portable. For manufacturers or packagers that require larger machines, they can find them by calling around.

Since, as said above, these machines are able to wrap a wide variety of films from the softer modern films that are used when a super strong seal is needed to the more rigid tradition films that have been sealing food items, DVDs, candles and CDs for many years. In most cases, the same shrink wrap machine can work with both types of wrapping material.

The process that a shrink wrapping machine follows is a simple one since the machine and its attachments are limited and simple: a hand held heat gun, a horizontal bar to hold the roll of wrapping film, a flat surface for working and a sealing arm. Films today generally activate, meaning shrink, at very low temperatures.

With all of the different sizes of wrapping machines available, there is no reason that a manufacturer or packager cannot get the machine that best meets its needs. As long as they speak with the correct subject matter experts and understand all that they can about the shrink wrap machine and wrapping supplies before making a decision, they will be good to go.
