PDC International Corp. (Norwalk, CT) is offering a shrink sleeve and labeling system that applies both full-height bodysleeves and tamper-evident banding. In the new 60 Series Evolution Shrinksealer, system flexibility and low capital expense are promoted by the use of two servos for product handling and sleeve registration.
Dual-use, mid-speed packaging systems for continuous shrink sleeve labeling, the 60 Series apply bodysleeve labels compatible with packaging including jars and bottles. In tamper-evident banding, shrink sleeves are applied as neck bands around the upper portion of a container and its closure, or as full-height safety seals. The sleeve label can be designed to extend over the cap, with a horizontal perforation for consumer tamper-evidence.
Standard features in the Series include motorized material unwind and material-out sensors. Tool-less changeover supports customers who use the 60 Series for both the shrinksleeve labeling and banding formats.
