Film’it!® is a unique solution dedicated to insert a thermo shrinkable film into a “regular” corrugated packaging, in order to block and protect the content, after entering a hot air tunnel, before lidding it.
It can deal either with trays (Fefco 0452 or 0453) or Hald Slotted Cases (Fefco 0200).
- The just erected packaging (see Form’it!) enters the Film’it! machine and receives hotmelt glue lines on its bottom + glue dots outside its long sides
- A thermo shrinkable PE film is unrolled, pushed inside the carton and stuck onto the bottom thanks to the previously applied glue
- The film foil is cut and its ends pressed against the glue dots outside the carton : this provisory holding will allow the operators to pick into the box without paying attention to the film flaps, which won’t cause any trouble on the conveyor.
Film’it! can be associated to Strip’it! to automatically fold the plastic flaps before the cartons enter the shrinking tunnel Shrink’it!
