Exceptional Flexibility With Custom Shrink Sleeve Machines

FlexibleShrinkSleeveMachinesCustomizedForYourLine.jpg

Shrink sleeve machine labelers represent a new generation of high tech labeling equipment designed for more flexibility than ever before. While regular wrap-around and front/back labelers have been traditionally limited to flat and round containers, shrink sleeves are capable of handling products in nearly any size and shape of container. They also provide superior water-resistant properties, and a number of added features that can help simplify all of your product concerns.

Benefits of Shrink Sleeves

A shrink sleeve machine is capable of handling products in very small tubes all the way up to large cans and jars. Unlike traditional labels, shrink sleeves are often made to cover the entire surface of a container so you can create a more uniform, classy appeal. Shrink sleeves are made of a specialized material that reacts to heat and constricts around your containers tightly to cover any contours evenly without bubbles or tears. This material also stands up well to moisture, making it ideal for canned goods that are cooled and often subject to condensation. In many cases, shrink sleeves can be more cost-effective than traditional labelers because they are capable of handling a wider range of product types. You can instantly switch out products and labels and continue with production at maximum speed.

Accessorizing Your Shrink Sleeve Machine

The true genius of the shrink sleeve machine is the ability to customize your machine with advanced tools such as cutters, mandrels, printers and more. Adding a 4, 6 or 8 head cutter makes it possible to quickly and cleanly cut shrink sleeves to fit your containers in large batches so they can head straight into the oven for shrinking. The mandrel attachment allows your machine to precisely wrap each label around your cans or bottles for a seamless fit. Each option can be weighed according to the needs of your production line to find the most efficient way to get your products labeled and shipped out.
