Automatic shrinking machine, type GLS

GLS – automatic gas type shrinking machine for packing of the pallet loads into the hoods made of thermo-shrinking film with output capacity approx. 25 pack./h

The load rotates during packing operation.
GLS shrinking machines mean low investment costs, good quality of packing and opportunity to install the hood putting unit.

Shrinking with GLS

After the pallet with load together with a hood enters the shrinking machine conveyor, the following automatic operations are performed:

    • lifting of the pallet
    • shrinking of the load hood
    • sliding of the pallet onto a receiving conveyor

Use of the pallets lifter and ventilator enables folding and shrinking of the film under the pallet bottom, thanks to it the product is more stable and tightly packed.

During the shrinking of the hood, in the machines with automatic putting system, the hood is prepared and put onto the next load.
