Hood Shrinking Machine UOK 020


Pallet transporting line with UOK 020 shrinking machine is designed for collection of palletized loads, placing and shrinking of hoods with thermo-shrinking film and then carrying the load for collection. Gas burners are used for heating and shrinking the film.

Palletized load with hood is carried to feeding roller conveyor. Then it is transferred by the transporter to UOK 020 transporter. The pallet is placed between centering rollers. Shrinking frame is started automatically. Frame in top position is quickly lowered to the bottom of package and then it stops in the bottom for specified time in order to shrink the film. Then, the frame is moved to the top with preconfigured speed in order to finish film shrinking all the way to the top. Frame speed can be configured by means of control box depending on thickness of hood’s film. After shrinking, the load is carried to outgoing transporter and then to the next transporter in order to be collected by personnel.

Pallet transporting line is equipped with safety barriers at the entry and exit of mesh panel zone.

Remaining elements of the line:
  • roller transporters, chain transporters,
  • pallet turntable.
