Several types of bottles and containers nowadays are labeled through a process called heatshrinking. In this process, the bottle or container is inserted into the shrinkwrap, a heat-sensitive plastic, and then heated to allow the shrinkwrap to adhere to the bottle. Currently, the process of inserting the bottle into the shrinkwrap is still done manually. With a high labor cost and with a not so high consistency in the quality of the output, a need for an automated pre-processing of a shrinkwrap label arises. This machine is a prototype system that automatically opens the shrinkwrap, inserts the bottle into the shrinkwrap in preparation for heatshrinking.
