36" PVC Laundry Wrap with free freight

36" X 5000' HEAVY LAUNDRY WRAP

***** FREE SHIPPING *****
36" x 45ga x 5000' HEAVY DUTY PVC Laundry wrap film keeps linens, laundry fresh — clean and crisp or fluffy soft — just the way they arrived at your store room, ready to be put into service when you need them.

Clear, tough laundry wrap stretches, clings, and heat seals easily. It's ideal for hand wrapping clean linens in hospitals, hotels, dry cleaners, institutions, or commercial laundries.
Laundry Wrap...
• Is water resistant and hygienic. Keeps out dust, dirt and moisture from the time linens are wrapped until they are used — in the laundry, in transit, or in storage.
• Stretches farther to use less film per package. Laundry wrap is available in convenient widths and gauges for the most efficient usage.
• Replaces paper, string, tape, and bags. A one-step wrap and seal operation saves on labor and material costs.
• Makes contents accessible and easy to identify.
• Stacks without slipping and sliding due to inherent cling ability of film.
• Eliminates lost tags. Tags go inside and are easy to see without opening the package.

Which is the Best Shrink Wrapping Equipment for my Application



Shrink wrap packaging is an industry that is growing day by day as more and more companies realize the benefits of owning their own shrink wrap machinery, making their daily tasks easier, more efficient and cost effective. However, for those who do not yet have a manufacturing device such as this, there are many different types of machinery that you can purchase for your business to help you pick out which one will best fit your needs. Here we have a short guide to help you find the perfect solution.

The process of shrink-wrapping items can be done completely automatically, semi-automatically or manually. Chamber Shrink Wrap Packaging Machines This is a semi-automatic option, which is usually the best option for small businesses, at the more basic level of shrink-wrapping machinery. With a simple procedure you can wrap a variety of different objects in just a few seconds. The speed of this part of the chain purely depends on that of the person in control, with most of the process being carried out by hand with the simple use of a handle for control.

There is also options for seal only or shrink and seal, the chamber shrink wrap machine is available in several different sizes. Semi-Automatic Shrink Wrap Packaging Machines, this next level adds an element of automation to the process, making for a much more time efficient procedure. Taking away the need for a person to transfer the object to the shrink tunnel, with this machine, an operator is only needed to slot the object into the shrink wrap film and push it towards the rollers. This machine is fully adjustable, from the height, positioning and temperature so that you can find the optimum settings. Available in a range of sizes, you can be sure that there will be one to suit your very needs.

Fully Automatic Shrink Wrap Packaging Machines, at the higher end of the range comes the fully automatic shrink wrap packaging machinery. This takes up much less manpower, working with little to no help to complete the process. These machines manage to pack at a staggering rate, beginning at around 25 packs per minute, and top speeds reaching around 100 packs per minute. This could speed up your packaging production line by a substantial amount, saving you time, energy and ultimately, money. Whether you require the machine to package simple item shapes or more complex, individual options, our fully automatic machines are suitable to pack nearly any type of shape. If you need further information when making a choice on which machine would be most suitable for your business, feel free to get in touch with us and let us help you find your perfect plastic packaging option!

Is your Machine Film being Stretched!

Here at Quick Pak Inc, we see this all the time. If a stretch wrapper is not actually “stretching” the film to its full potential, you are throwing money out the window. In addition, increasing the stretch of the film will increase the containment force.  A load wrapped with a machine which is not stretching the film properly is much more prone to shipping damage. Many companies don’t take these factors into account. They think that as long as their machines are working, they are working properly.


We recently got a call from a customer who has large distribution centers in many states and is wrapping 2500 pallets per day. Their corporate office had noticed a trend that a distribution center in one state was spending much more in film costs per year than their other locations, even though they all used the same machines and the same film. These machines are meant to stretch the film at 250%. 
When the Quick Pak team arrived we quickly found that some of their machines were working properly, stretching the film to 250%, while others were stretching the film significantly less due to mechanical failures in the film carriage. Using state of the art testing technology we were able to determine that these faulty machines were costing this customer about $600 per day in added film cost. We quickly worked to resolve the issues with the film carriage and this location is now exceeding their film cost benchmark. 

If you don’t know how much your machines are stretching the film or how much you are paying per load, give us a call. We can perform a machine audit and provide a report on your machine performance, film cost, and recommend solutions to bring your costs down.  A small investment in testing could save you a lot!

Quick Packaging News: Laser Marking and Coding in Packaging

Laser Marking and Coding in Packaging

Is laser marking the right solution for your business? Which laser technology will deliver the best results? Our coding experts reveal everything you need to know about laser marking technology.

Not too long ago, laser was considered a specialist marking and coding solution — with a hefty price tag. Today, thanks to the rapid advances in technology, laser coding has not only become more cost effective, it’s also now the number one choice for a wide range of applications across food, beverage and pharmaceutical packaging, right through to heavy industries. And in another massive leap for the technology, lasers can now mark clear and legible barcodes on primary and secondary packaging.
Does this mean lasers will replace inkjet technology? Probably not — there are still some applications for which laser is simply not the best nor cost-efficient choice. But with the lower capital cost and flexibility, it’s worth weighing up laser technology for your application.

Is laser coding right for your application?

Consider these five factors to work out whether laser is the best solution for you:
  1. What are you coding onto?
Laser coding solutions have come a long way in the last decade and can now apply human-readable text on both primary and secondary packaging, as well as fully compliant barcodes. In fact, they can reliably code onto glass, plastics, metal and cardboard and flexible packaging.
  1. Do you need a permanent mark?
Laser coding technology is ideal if you need permanent marks, for example, for anti-counterfeiting and brand protection. This is achieved through a two-step process. First the laser ablates the substrate to remove materials from the area to be marked, such as ink on printed packaging or a layer of metal. Onto this clean patch, the laser engraves the substrate with a very fine groove. The result is a permanent mark. In some applications a colour change may occur as well.
  1. Is high quality a priority?
With the ability to create high quality marks, laser is ideal for applications where product presentation is very important. So it’s not surprise this technology is the number one choice for the wine industry.
  1. Do you run a high-speed line?
Compared with inkjet systems, lasers offer a more cost-effective solution for high-speed lines. This comes down to the fact that lasers have no consumables, such as solvents or ribbons. Research shows the return on investment (ROI) can be less than three years on medium-volume production lines. So if your line has an output of more than 100 products per minute, laser could be the smart choice.
  1. Capital expenditure and total cost of ownership (TCO)
Traditionally, laser technology has been most suited for high-volume applications where the equipment’s higher capital cost is balanced by the ongoing lower operational costs. Smaller businesses have simply been unable to justify the high capital outlay. However, today you don’t have to run a high-volume production line to enjoy the benefits of laser technology. Thanks to more compact and lower-cost systems, laser is now a cost-effective solution for lower-volume manufacturers too.

Types of laser technology

Once you’ve worked out that laser coding is right for you, there are two types of technology to choose from. Which one you choose depends on your application and the substrate.
  • The traditional way: CO2 laser
CO2 laser technology is the old-school method of laser marking. It uses a carbon dioxide gas mixture, which is electrically stimulated to produce a high efficiency, high quality beam. They are the most widely used laser types because of the cost efficiency, low operation costs, low maintenance and lack of consumables.
CO2 laser coders are also extremely versatile and can be used to mark onto a wide range of materials at high line speeds, including paper, cardboard, foils, coated metals, plastics, wood, glass and more.
  • The new way: fibre lasers
Fibre laser is the newer of the two types and comes with some extra advantages. As part of the solid state laser group, this laser technology produces a higher intensity laser which is ideally suited to metal engraving and high-contract plastic markings.
A major advantage of fibre lasers over CO2 lasers is that they can mark flexible packaging material where no special laser field exists. In other words, the original field created for a small character inkjet code will often be sufficient. Because of the beam’s high stability, the fibre laser won’t perforate flexible films, such as those used for snackfood and confectionary packaging. This is a huge benefit for the food and grocery industry.
Another advantage is that this technology is completely maintenance free over thousands of working hours. Choose a fibre system and you can expect a life expectancy more than four times that of the standard CO2 laser tube technology. Laser technology already boasts a low total cost of ownership (TCO), but the extended extraction filter life reduces this even more. Fibre laser technology also doesn’t need factory air for cooling or marking-head cleaning.
