ARPAC, a leading manufacturer of shrink wrapping machinery and packaging equipment, introduced XLR8 Servo-Driven Side Seal Horizontal Shrink Wrapper.

The XLR8 shrink wrapper is one of the most versatile, servo-driven packaging equipment and machines on the market today.
It is capable of wrapping up to 100 packages per minute in clear or print registered film.

This continuous motion XLR8 film folding system eliminates the need for multiple forming heads with its adjustable film former. Unlike conventional film inverters, the XLR8 film path ensures equal transfer of grouped products onto the film without skewing the product configuration, making it deal for multipacks and irregular shaped products. The XLR8’s unique film forming and feed method will use up to 2” less film than similar competitive machines. In addition, the single wound film requirement increases the film capacity by more than 100% thus improving productivity and reducing downtime caused by film change.
Multi-axis servo-driven operation offers precise electronic control for immediate and accurate sealing action, ensuring strong, consistent seals. The seal opening height is electronically programmed to vary with product height, maximizing output speeds for smaller products. The servo pouch length adjustment enables “on the fly” bag length changes without changing the flight spacing. All adjustments are made from the operator side of the machine and product changeovers can be completed quickly and easily.
