Semi Automatic Overwrapping Machine
Universal Semi Automatic Overwrapping Machine
semi automatic overwrapping machine is ideally suited to environments that require frequent product size changes or in applications
where batch sizes and volumes are small such as Cosmetics, Media, Confectionary, Soap, Tissue and Paper contract packaging.
The system can be adjusted within minutes to overwrap a variety of product geometries and sizes. Products are neatly wrapped
using standard overwrapping OPP or BOPP films. Economical non-coated or premium quality coated films ranging in thickness
from 80 gauge (20 micron) to 320 gauge (80 micron) are well suited for the Universal overwrapping machine. Products
wrapped using the system exhibit a premium quality overwrapped appearance at minimal capital expense. Preprinted
film can be used to orient artwork or printed text towards a specific surface of each product.

The Universal Semi
Automatic Overwrapping machine uses precut sheets of overwrapping film.
- Sheets are placed
on the staging surface (white) aligned with the centerline of the tuck-and-fold stage.
product to be wrapped is placed on the aforementioned sheet of film's center line.
edge of the sheet of film is folded over the top of the product and down the far side of the product while at the same time
pulling the product closer to the operator.
- Once the product has transitioned over the heat-sealer,
the sealer will extend sealing the film against the product for 500 milliseconds.
- The product
is then inserted into the tuck-and-fold stage.
As new products are inserted into the tuck-and-fold
stage previously inserted products are thereby pushed through the tuck-and-fold stage towards the side sealers. During the
long (initial) seal the side sealers are also activated to form the side seals.
