cellopahne wrappingCellophane overwrapping is also called film overwrapping. Machinery used to automate the packaging automation process is usually referred to as cellophane wrapper, cello-wrapper, or cellophane overwrapping machines. Though frequently referred to as cellophane wrapping, cellophane itself as the material for such plastic film wrapping has been supplanted by polyethene (or polyethylene).



What is an Automatic Cellophane Overwrapping Machine?

An automatic cellophane overwrapping machine is a film wrapping machinery that can wrap a cuboid or cubic carton with film, fold and tuck and fin the film the both ends of the carton and then shrink the film to secure the film packaging. The cellophane overwrapping machine basically consists of:

  • Infeed section
  • Film reel where film rolls are loaded
  • Film infeed unit
  • Folding stations
  • Heat-shrink stations

What are those Frequently Used Materials for Overwrapping?

Materials used for film overwrapping vary in terms of shrink property, stretch property, health and environmental concerns, recyclability and degradability.

Poly Vinyl Chloride, PVC

PVC used to be a frequently used material for overwrapping considering its performance to shrink. However, the production and then the disposal of PVC involve the emission of dioxins, which is cancerogenic, has led to the gradually less use of it.

Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene, BOPP & Oriented Polypropylene, OPP

The difference between BOPP and OPP is that the former is capable of being stretched biaxially. Apart from the excellent stretch property, the production and disposal of OPP & BOPP involve no materials or emissions that can affect health and the environment in a negative way.

Polyethylene, PE

PE film is also characterized as a toxic-free, healthy & environmentally friendly film material. PE outstrips BOPP in terms of stretch property. The cons of it is that PE is not high-temperature-resistant.

Industry and Products where Overwrapping Packaging is Used?
