What Are The Benefits Of Shrink Wrapping?

In general, shrink wrapping is a fantastic way to package a great range of products. It creates an extremely tight seal around items, even if they are irregularly shaped. Pallet wrapping prevents in-transit damage by stopping movement, while individual products such as foodstuffs can be shrink wrapped in order to keep out oxygen and bacteria that would spoil the food, thus extending its shelf life.
All of the shrink wrap films available at JAKPAK have the added benefit of being LDPE recyclable and eco-friendly. Our products each have their own specific benefits, such as the Anti Fog shrink film which ensures foodstuffs are well presentable on the shelves; printed shrink film that allows you to add branding; as well as stretch film which provides an ultra-secure hold.

What Types Of Shrink Wrap Films You Have Available?

Here at JAKPAK Wrapping Machinery, we have a number of different options for high quality shrink, bagging and pallet wraps which can be shrunk with a heat tunnel or handheld heat gun. Depending on whether you need the shrink wrap to keep shipments safe during transit, especially for overseas delivery, or to keep your products looking professional on the shelves, we have a great variety of shrink wraps for you. The range includes:
Polyolefin Shrink Film – Presentational Display Packaging
Anti-Fog Shrink Film
Polythene Shrink Wrap Film – Transit and Collation Packaging
Printed Shrink Film
Stretch Film
Polypropylene
For more information on each type, please visit our shrink wrap film page.

What Types Of Wrapping And Packaging Machinery Do You Have?

We have a great range of wrapping and packaging machinery, and will be happy to advise you on which best suits the needs of your business. Our standard range includes:
Sleeve wrapping machinery
Flow wrapping machinery
Shrink tunnels
Trim sealing machinery
L-sealing machinery
We can also supply non-standard custom machinery that is bespoke to your company’s requirements.

Do You Only Have Manual L Sealers?

No, we have a full range of manual, semi-automatic, fully automatic and chamber L sealers. While manual L sealers are a perfect choice for start-up businesses and local bakeries, larger scale operations will require one of our other used L sealers.

Are Trim Sealing Machines An Efficient Option For My Business?

Trim sealers are fully automatic sealing machines – they’re the next level up from L sealing machines. Our trim sealing machines are each capable of wrapping, sealing, trimming and shrinking up to 60 products a minute, so they’re ideal if you have a high product turnover and require extremely neat presentation. If you are undecided between L sealing and trim sealing machines, get in touch with us and we’ll give you an honest answer.

Are Your Heat Shrink Tunnels Suitable For Products Of All Sizes?

Yes, practically any size. We have a great range of shrink tunnels that can be used to seal items as small as bottles right up to flat pack furniture and wooden panels. If you have specific requirements, give us a call on 07946408354 and we’ll find a shrink tunnel to suit your business’ needs.

How Will Flow Wrap Machinery Benefit My Business?

Flow wrap machinery is ideal for industries where hygiene standards are of the utmost importance, such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and foods. The machinery itself can be kept highly sterile, while products are properly packaged to prevent contamination from moisture, dirt and UV rays and prolong shelf life. Flow wrap machines create horizontal bags of varying sizes from just a single roll of film. This results in a fully sealed and flexible package with the products already inside, which means the products will also benefit from much less direct handling.

What Sleeve Wrapping Machinery Do You Sell?

We have both semi-automatic and fully automatic sleeve wrapping technology – which of these will best benefit your business will depend on your scale of production and whether you want to be able to wrap stacked products or not. Read more about our sleeve wrapping machinery, then get in touch to discuss your specific requirements.

Do You Offer Technical Support? What Does This Include?

Of course, our after sales technical support is an integral part of our business. To begin with, we are able to install machinery and teach your staff how to use it safely and efficiently. We also offer affordable routine servicing to keep your machinery in the best condition and prevent avoidable breakdowns which could cost your business greatly in downtime alone. We also stock a large variety of spare parts for all machines, and are happy to fit these for you should you need them. As experts in wrapping machinery, we’re on hand at all times to ensure you get the most out of your machinery.

Can I Buy Used Packaging Machinery From JAKPAK?

Yes you definitely can, and with confidence too. JAKPAK started out in the 90s refurbishing packaging machinery, so all of our used packaging machinery has been fully refurbished to the highest standards.
