Our Shrink Wrapping Services

Using an automated sealer, the package travels by a conveyor system, through an electric heat tunnel, and is then removed for final packing.

Thanks to continual investment in the newest, most versatile automated equipment and by maintaining an expertly trained and dedicated commercial printing staff, we can provide the very best in shrink wrapping.

Our Machinery

At Larkin Industries we always strive to offer the latest and greatest in every print finishing service we offer. Not just any automated sealer will do. Our Star Evolution machine offers continuous sealing packaging that will produce up to 45 packages per minute. It is excellent for packaging and total closure of various types of products with heat shrinking or other film, center-folded or flat film.

The machine can create pack sizes as small as 2” by 3” and go up to 14” wide by 4” high with infinite length. For small products it has a retractable nose. The Star Evolution also provides our customers with huge savings in film and energy since it can produce tight packs.
