Pete & Johnny Install EDL Shrinkwrapper.

Pete & Johnny, producers of flavoured soft drinks, have recently discovered the benefits of an EDL Side Feed Automatic Shrinkwrapper to package five sizes of PET bottle - 205, 250, 330, 500m1 and 1 litre. The system can handle 156 bottles per minute in collations of 3 by 2, 3 by 3 and 4 by 3.

An added benefit is that the system does not require two rolls of film top and bottom because the the film is cut into two by a knife as it unwinds. This leads to further economies as the splitting knife reduces the number of different film sizes Pete & Johnny have to stock. The trayless collations are controlled by retractable guides on the infeed and the system is fitted with a static eliminator on both film feed units to overcome a constant static problem within the factory. A low energy shrink tunnel completes the package cycle.
