The shrinkwrapper takes care of creating the bundle, the plasticized package that usually contains the bottles or cans that are commonly found in the supermarket.

The second, through an oven, is responsible for heating and consequently making the external plastic adhere to the contents.

in order to make them enter neatly inside the shrinkwrapper.
