Shrink-wrapping equipment supplier Yorkshire Packaging Systems has recently installed two fully automatic L sealers at the London-based factory of Harrison Wipes for bagging its range of wiping cloth products. Harrison Wipes is an international wiping cloth specialist currently undergoing a major expansion. YPS originally supplied a sleeve wrapping system back in 2008 and followed that success when the company wanted to automate a bagging process. The equipment consists of two fully automatic L sealers with specially adapted sealing systems designed specifically to cope with polythene shrink film instead of the more usual polyolefin shrink for this type of equipment. The reason polythene was used is that no shrink was required and so for just bagging, polythene provided the strongest bag at the lowest cost. A combination of unique features were added such as print registration detection to allow the use of printed film and a specially increased height sealing head to allow extra tall products to be wrapped.
