Luggage Wrapper being repaired at Quick Pak Inc. What is a luggage wrapper?
The luggage wrap machine is commonly used in airports to
wrap suitcases, golf clubs, pushchairs & backpacks. These machines have also been sold in other
sectors to wrap single boxes, plastic cartons, televisions ready to recycle and
various other applications.
They have a power pre-stretch film delivery mechanism
fitted, which allows the film to be stretched up to 245%. This will give a significant saving on film
compared to manual wrapping. There is also an easy thread head manufacture for
these machines. The machines that we make use film that is 750mm wide.
Airports - After an item is wrapped it cannot be opened
without your knowledge as the film creates a seal around your luggage. If the
luggage wrap has been damaged or opened then it will be clearly visible to you
because the film would be cut or torn.
In airports across the world, it is believed that luggage is
opened frequently by handling staff…
The Jetline utilizes Squid Ink’s patented micro-channeling technology, eliminating the need for a costly array of fluid valves. Squid Ink’s proven plunger technology distributes ink through a series of channels,keeping production and maintenance costs to a minimum, especially when compared to the costly valve technology common in most ink jet printers today. As the newest addition to Squid Ink’s growing family of marking and coding systems, the Jetline gives users more choices for their coding applications.
The Jetline is upgraded with software features that coding and marking users need most: virtually unlimited message memory, user definable time and date, expiration date, and sequential code printing, as well as a shift organizer to automatically separate and code different work shifts within your packaging operation. The Jetline also comes standard with a shaft encoder input for packagers using a variable speed conveyor. Again, offering all of the functionality needed for even your…
We supply CLING-Tite plastic shrink wrap film for packaging
pizza boxes, trays of bottles, cans and unitizing. Heat shrink wrap is often
referred to as heat shrink plastic, shrink bundling film, poly shrink pack and
case wrap. We offer several application–specific shrink films such as
perforated shrink wrap / vented shrink wrap and “film over film”.
Vented Shrink Film
Both our industrial shrink wrap and clear printable shrink
wrap films adapt to practically any heat shrink tunnel, shrink wrap machine or
shrink wrapper to achieve a tight “bullseye” closure.
We use virgin resins and extrude them under the same
conditions for you every time. The result is boring, consistent performance so
you don’t have to constantly adjust heat shrink tunnel settings. To make a heat
shrink package fit you have to predict the shrink ratios in both the machine
direction (MD) and transverse direction (TD). Too much or too little shrink in
the transverse direction results in a sloppy “bullseye” on the side…
If you’re in a profession or industry that uses kraft paper
or butcher paper every day, you may think that the two are entirely different.
While they are generally used for different purposes, you may be surprised to
learn that butcher paper and kraft paper start out as the same paper.
The term butcher paper first appeared when butchers began
using paper to wrap and store meat and seafood.
Both kraft paper and butcher begin with the same exact raw
materials, meaning kraft paper actually shares the same wood fiber as butcher
paper. When it comes to the true differences between these papers, they
basically come down to how they are processed beyond their raw materials and
how they are best used.
What’s in a color?
If you’re like most people, you may think that color is the
main differentiator between kraft and butcher papers. Kraft paper is brown, and
butcher paper is white, right? Not necessarily. Many manufacturers offer brown
kraft paper, but in reality, the paper is available in a …
