The AT53 type automatic hooding machine is a combined machine which uses a single work station for the hooding and heat-shrink wrapping of the product. The machine makes use of a tubular reel of heat-shrink film, the reel being complete with side bellows. The film is shrink wrapped on the product by means of a gas powered ring oven: all operations are controlled by a PC which controls the manual and automatic functions.


The presence of an operator is only needed to change the film reel. In certain cases supervision is recommended to oversee the correct entry of the product to be hooded into the machine.
