Film handling and wrapping

Reliability and simplicity that operations staff favor. Operating tolerance and package quality are the focus of OPTX film handling, with performance enhancing features integrated into every element.

  • Ergonomic side mounted film stand and an available automatic film splicer enhance safety and productivity
  • Film roller design counteracts wrinkles and overlapping induced by variations in film, improving cutting efficiency and package quality
  • Film cutting efficiency is designed in delivering operation tolerance and simplicity
    • Reduced occurrence of uncut film and film transfer issues through the cutter
      • Film cutting tension assured by proprietary single nip roller and vacuum table designs with edge-to-edge film control; reduces missed cuts due to tension loss that can occur in designs with dual nip rollers
      • Vacuum table provides positive film transfer and control, eliminating the second nip roller and related setup and film transfer issues
      • High-speed cutting motion provides consistency, tolerance against film variations, and optimized full-width cutting
    • Simplified maintenance and access
      • Access for film threading and knife maintenance provided by the single nip roller design
      • Sensitivities of setup between dual nip rollers is eliminated
      • Automatic drive belt tracking extends belt life
      • Self-tensioning vacuum/film-delivery belts
  • Precise film delivery and wrapping profiles set the stage for package quality

The ergonomic side film stand simplifies film loading and splicing. The available automatic film splicer delivers precise print registration and heat splicing, reducing critical machine downtime. The easy-access side film stand enables operators to stage clear or printed film, at their convenience, while the machine is running. Staging during operation maximizes production time and minimizes the occurrence of empty film faults. Once the film is staged, no operator attention is needed for splicing. Splicing occurs automatically, providing operators considerable flexibility with work load.

More uptime, more productivity … this option is a great addition to a new OPTX Shrink Wrap System. Its simplicity and convenience provides an efficient work environment for the operator.

The wrapping wand uses quick change circular, elliptical or trapezoidal wand paths, depending on product size range. This results in increased film control. More benefits include a large size range, the ability to accept randomly spaced products and few parts to maintain.

Shrink Tunnels Utilizing XACT 360™ Air Control Technology – simply and consistently better packages

OPTX Tunnel Dual

With OPTX™ shrink tunnels and exclusive XACT 360™ Air Control Technology, enhanced package appearance and durability are achieved with next level simplicity and efficiency. With XACT 360, all OPTX solutions deliver consistently superior finished packages regardless of product type or shape.

Trademarks of a design that produces the most appealing and durable packages, OPTX shrink tunnels maintain gentle, laminar air flow and balanced heat distribution. And with XACT 360 Air Control Technology, OPTX takes it a step further by quickly adjusting with unprecedented simplicity to deliver air exactly where it’s needed for each product.

1 – Heated air is delivered through conveyor chain with laminar flow to bond the lap seal and surround each package 360 degrees


2 – With simple recipe selection, exclusive “air knives” automatically adjust to inject targeted air precisely where needed for specific pack characteristics


3 – Gentle laminar airflow improves package consistency by reducing wrinkle-inducing turbulence in the tunnel


4 – Recycling of cooled air reduces heater loads and minimizes heat loss, while tunnel outer shroud temperatures remain cool to the touch

Reduce energy costs and improve production efficiency with a shorter heat-up time by using gas instead of electricity to heat the shrink wrap tunnel. Tunnel heat from 75°F to 360°F in just 20 minutes, cutting the heat-up time by almost 30%. Depending on local energy costs and the type of machine used with the gas tunnel, it is estimated that companies could cut energy costs up to 75%.
