Unpackaging a New Shrink Wrap Machine (with Pictures)

Unpackaging a new shrink wrap machine from U.S. Packaging and Wrapping is quick and easy. Due to the ease and familiarity with upackaging machines, we often skip to optimal settings when talking to customers.

Many people rightly want to know how a shrink wrap machine will arrive. Will it require extra tools? Will a technician be needed once the machine arrives? We sell machines across the country and explain to customers that machines can be set up and running within 30 minutes of arrival.

View a step-by-step guide below of unpackaging palletized shrink wrap machines from U.S. Packaging & Wrapping LLC.

Items Needed: Cutting blade, 13mm socket, claw hammer, forklift

Upon arrival the shrink wrap machine will be fully enclosed within a triple wall corrugated box.

Use a claw hammer to remove box closure tabs.

Remove the corrugated box and cut the film holding the Poly bag cover on the box

After stretch film is cut, remove poly bag from covering machine. (Hint: If kept, the bag covering the machine is a great way prevent dust build up when the machine is not being used)

Once the poly bag is removed, cut additional film from the machine. Film racks and other machine essentials will be fastened to the machine using stretch film.

Remove securing bolts from the bottom of the machine with a 13mm socket

When all four bolts are removed the from machine, use a piece of cardboard between the machine and forklift forks and raise the machine and set it on the ground.

All machines include wheels and locking casters. Once on the ground, the machine is ready for set up.

After the new shrink wrap machine is unpackaged and placed on the ground, set up adjustments are next. Finding the right temperature and speed for the shrink wrap being used is easy and will be covered in our next post.
