If you need a low-cost shrink wrapping solution for your business, manual wrapping with hand tools can be a good option for businesses with a low production volume. These tools become less efficient if you need to shrink wrap a high volume of products.

Types of shrink wrapping machines

There are several options when it comes to choosing shrink wrap machines. The first step is usually to choose a machine which has all the features you need for your business, and this will likely include choosing between fully or semi-automatic shrink wrap machines.

Fully or semi-automatic?

The primary difference between the two options is that fully automatic machines are faster and better able to handle high-volume production.

Fully automatic machines are typically more appropriate for large scale operations, or businesses planning for growth, while semi-automatic machines are better for small to medium operations.

New or used?

Another important consideration is whether you want a new or used shrink wrapping machine. Used machines have the advantage of being less expensive than new. When purchasing used equipment, you need to make sure that it is in good condition and choose reputable selling who offers after-sales support.

You may not always be able to find used shrink wrapping machines for sale which fit your needs, so buying a new machine can be more convenient. New machines also come with the added peace of mind of having a manufacturer's warranty.
