I am looking for a machine to wrap my product much like the plastic you’d find around frozen pizzas. My problem is that these shrink wrap machines use heat, right?
Well my product is supposed to be an uncooked frozen pastry. I know that frozen pizzas are normally cooked then frozen, so this wouldn’t be problem for them. But for my product i think it would. Or does the heat not affect the product directly? Is there another type of machine you could recommend for me to use which won’t affect my product by cooking it, but which will give that same tightly wrapped pizza result?
Yes, shrink wrap machines do use heat to package products. The heat inside a shrink wrap machine chamber is actually relatively low. It gets hot enough to shrink down the Polyolefin Shrink Wrap Film, commonly used with food products. However, this film requires a low temperature to form around and item, thus most food products are unaffected. Take a look at our Minipack Galaxy Quick Overview Video. Notice how quickly and efficiently the machine fully shrink wraps the demo pizza. It takes only two seconds … and you’ll notice that the pizza has the shrink film tightly wrapped around the pizza. Two seconds in a shrink wrap machine chamber is simply not enough time to melt the cheese on your pizzas.
