Heat Shrink Tunnel Machines
Accraply offers a wide range of heat tunnels for the applicator of heat shrinkable sleeve labels and tamper evident bands on your products.
Accraply’s heat shrink tunnel machines are manufactured to meet or exceed your industry’s production requirements. No matter your application, our team can help you find the perfect combination of heat shrink systems to fit for your product shrink wrap label.
How Does a Shrink Tunnel Work?
Once the shrink wrap labels have been placed in the correct position on the container, they must be shrunk using a heat shrink tunnel or steam tunnel.
The products are fed into the shrink tunnel with a conveyor belt, then passed through the temperature-controlled tunnel chamber. When the shrink wrap reaches the heat, it begins to shrink to the correct label size.
Types of Shrink Tunnel Machines Accraply Offers
The type of shrink sleeve label you use determines the type of shrink tunnel machine needed. The Accraply team can assist with finding the right machine for your application.
Radiant Heat Tunnel Machines
Radiant heat tunnel machines emit infrared radiation, which the shrink sleeves absorb.
Hot Air Tunnel Machines
Hot air tunnel machines for shrink sleeve labels heat the air in the machine. The air is then blown on the sleeve label, creating an even distribution of hot or cold air.
The Benefits of Shrink Wrapping
Shrink sleeve labels offer many benefits to your production line, such as:
- Easy application for irregular shaped containers
- Enables opportunities for 360° branding
- Abrasion resistant labels
- Easily add tamper evident seals to your products
- More eco-friendly label materials than the traditional approach
