Plexpack has two different types of wrappers that can totally enclose a package : the Damark S1 and S2. Both create high-quality fully enclosed packages without the need for an operator. However, the difference between the two machines lies in how the machine deploys the shrink film for enclosure; this means that the finished product on the S2 will appear slightly different from the S1.

No one wants to buy a new 50 lb. bag of pet food to find that it has lost its freshness and nutrients.
