The SK ERGON packers can be equipped with an automatic handle applicator of the PSHA series (Pre-Shrinking Handle Applicator), which attaches a handle on a section of the shrink film before it's wrapped around a group of containers moving toward the shrink tunnel.
The pre-shrinking handle applicator of the PSHA series can be installed on the operator's side, on the opposite side or on both sides in case of dual lane production and represents the ideal solution when:
- there isn't enough room for the installation of a stand-alone handle applicator and for the conveyors between the packer and the handle applicator;
- the film is thin but a handle applicator is indispensable;
- packs are little, since the application before shrinking entails a larger section of application.
