Product Description

Hot Plate Shrink Tunnels produce a complete and uniform shrink in most high speed wrapping applications by pulling seal lines to the bottom or sides of the package. Typical applications include pizzas, stationery, greeting cards and calendars.

In order to improve the appearance of finished packages, ARPAC Hot Plate Tunnels feature a solid heated COHRlastic® belt designed to control the location and seal on shrink wrapped products. As the package passes over the heated area of the conveyor, heat causes the seal seams to be pulled underneath or to the sides of the product. Heavy duty variable speed blowers create a high velocity recirculating air system that ensures a contour fit and controls the location of seals by forcing hot air to all points and surfaces of the package.

These tunnels are equipped with thermocouple temperature controls, solid belt conveyors, calrod heating elements and UL listed control panels. Tunnels are available in either single or dual zones and are offered with a powder coat paint or stainless steel finish.

ARPAC Hot Plate Shrink Tunnels are manufactured in the USA in accordance with ARPAC’s Lean Manufacturing Process (AM2) to ensure quality, performance and value.
