What is a shrinkwrap machine?
Most of us would not know what a hot shrink-wrapping machine exactly is. Few of us would guess that maybe it’s a sealer that seals items in a professional packaging to protect it from dust and moisture, while others might guess that it’s a shrink tunnel. In simple terms, it’s both of these two things combined.
