Heat-shrink tunnels can effectively process labels, sleeves, or bands that conform to container shapes, offering companies packaging benefits ranging from tamper-evidence to 360-degree coverage, from brilliant graphics to efficient product flow. By automating what could be a time-consuming process of hand-shrinking bands via the use of hot-air guns, these devices offer tremendous labor savings and consistent product appearance. But not all heat tunnels are the same. Various types offer different benefits and realizing the strengths of each type—convective heat, radiant heat, and steam heat—will enable companies to pair their needs to the right machine. Read more about these different types of heat tunnels in the white paper below.
