Packing long tubes with protective film (as with our Auto 30/L tube packaging machine) is an essential process to ensure that these fragile and sensitive objects are transported safely without suffering damage during transport. Packaging film is a versatile and highly effective tool that offers protection from impacts, scratches and external contamination. In this context, long tube film packaging plays a crucial role in the supply chain and logistics.
Before starting the packing process, it is important to consider several aspects, such as the material of the tubes, their length and sensitivity to damage. Long tubes can be made of various materials, including plastic, metal or cardboard, and the choice of packaging film must adapt to the specific protection needs of each type of tube.
Packaging film can be of different types, such as shrink film, stretch film or adhesive film. The selection of film type depends on the specific characteristics of the tubes and packaging needs. For example, shrink film can be useful for creating a soft and versatile bag, depending on the size of the product.
The packing process begins by preparing the tubes to be wrapped in protective film. Pipes must be clean and dry to avoid damage caused by contaminants. Next, they are laid out on a suitable work surface so that they can be easily wrapped in foil.
Once the tubes are ready, the film is carefully and safely applied. This can be done manually or with the help of specialized machinery, depending on the size and quantity of tubes to be packaged. During this process, it is important to ensure that the film is stretched evenly to ensure effective protection along the entire length of the pipe.
The film not only protects pipes from physical damage, but can also act as a barrier against moisture and dust, preventing corrosion or contamination. Additionally, it can improve visibility of tube contents, making identification easier during handling and distribution.
Another important consideration is labeling. Each hose should be clearly labeled with crucial information such as material type, length, weight and other pertinent information. This helps simplify the logistics management process and ensures more efficient and accurate movement of tubes at various points in the supply chain.
In conclusion, packing long tubes with protective film thanks to the Auto 30/L for tube packaging is a fundamental step to ensure that these objects reach their destination in optimal conditions. Correct film selection and attention to detail during the packaging process are essential to ensure effective protection and efficient logistics management.

Pactur’s shrink tunnels are designed so as not to lose the heated air into the atmosphere, thanks to a system of turbines developed by us to create an internal recirculation of the air and, at the same time, to blow air all over the product.
Temperature control is made through a PID system (proportional-derivative-integrative), which activates solid-state relays. The PID controller is a control algorithm with a predefined structure, which is tuned (calibrated) by choosing the value of some parameters. Correction factors are calculated by comparing the output value with the set value and applying gains that minimize overshoot and oscillation, while implementing the change as quickly as possible. PID control on a shrink tunnel heating system grants a constant and continuous variation of the output within a feedback mechanism of the control loop, in order to verify the process and ensure the absence of oscillations and, therefore, maximum saving.
Thanks to its engineering, Pactur has developed this system of turbines to create an internal circulation of the air and, at the same time, to blow homogeneously air all around the product. Beyond the shrinking performances, we wanted to grant considerable energy savings, thanks to the continuous reuse of the air already present in the circuit without constant aspirations from outside. This reduces hot air leaks into the surrounding environment, it improves operators’ working conditions and it creates better energy sustainability.
