Arpac Brand GI Series Shrink Bundlers

The Arpac Brand GI Series shink bundling machines meet the needs of low to medium volume printers and interacts with today’s 18,000 to 20,000 books-per-hour binding lines, presorted postal route sequencing applications and the printing industry’s fastest counter-stackers.  They have also been applied to many other consumer product bundling applications.

The GI Series is capable of wrapping extremely short, lightweight and random sized products, and is ideal for e-commerce applications. Shrink wrapped bundles reduce movement and product damage during shipment, and provide protection against harmful environmental conditions. This equipment wraps random sized stacks on demand, without interrupting production of the wrapper itself. The zero tension film feed ensures that this compact and economical shrink bundler wraps up to 55 products per minute for our 55GI version and up to 75 products per minute for our 75GI version.
