For many companies, the shrink tunnel is a staple of their packaging line. From unitizing multi-packs and reducing one's carbon footprint, shrink tunnels and shrink film are an excellent choice for packaging many items. But how much does a shrink tunnel actually cost? Is there a way to find this information without digging through websites or bringing a sales professional into a meeting? In the article below, we will provide pricing for two shrink tunnels and the associated options in order to help you simplify the process of getting pricing for this type of equipment.

 

What Dynamics Effect The Total Cost Of A Shrink Tunnel?

 

There are various elements of a shrink tunnel that will effect the total purchase price of the machine. From the type and gauge of shrink film that you choose run to the optional items you add-on to the machine, there are various things that can increase or decrease your total purchase price.

 

When starting the buyer's journey in purchasing a shrink tunnel, it would be well advised to reach out to a local packaging expert and request information about the machine such as the size, weight, physical foot print, base machine features, additional options, electrical supply and etc.

 

You should consider comparing a few different models from several different manufacturers and be sure to read reviews by other people who currently own the machine. This will help you to determine the pros and cons of each brand offering and find a machine that is right for your products and your packaging line.

 

For this article, we will be looking at two different machines at two different price points from the brand Kallfass.
