Spanish translation:Máquina de envasado retráctil
Explanation:
Shrink wrap is the plastic covering that encases new software boxes or video tapes, for example. I think "máquina de precintado plástico" or "máquina de precinto plástico" would be a good translation too.

Empacadora


Explanation:
A shrink wrap machine is a machine that wraps any product, from a videocassette to a pallet oc concrete roof tile, in a sheet or bag of plastic material, and then heat shrunk to make it suitable for shipping.
EMPACADORA is a generic term used to describe all kinds od packaging machines, and it certainly applies here and it would be my choice.

máquina de envasar al vacío


Explanation:
I found this of particular interest since the term vacío implies the shrink'wrapping process. I found it in a Collins Dictionary which is my primary reference text. Good luck with it.

tunel para encoger pvc


Explanation:
Desde hace más de 20 años, las promociones se envuelven en PVC encogible, se sellan al calor y se pasa por un tunel de aire caliente, donde el material se encoge y toma el contorno de las piezas que lleva dentro. La máquina es simplemente un tunel de aire caliente con banda transportadora.
La máquina más pequeña es una secadora de pelo con calor, pues hace exactamente lo mismo. La puedes ver en cualquier casa de regalos.
Suerte!!
