The series of Shrink Sleeve Labellers covers a wide range of speeds from 3,000 up to 48,000 cph and is divided into three groups of machines that differ essentially due to the different configuration of the sleeve insertion unit.:
1) In Line direct shooting Shrink Sleeve Labeling Machines; production speed up to 18.000 cph (See)
2) In Line Shrink Sleeve Labeling Machine with rotating carousel; production speed up to 24.000 cph; (See)
3) In-line double head Shrink Sleeve Labeling Machine for speeds up to 48.000 cph
The bottles coming from the line are continuously fed and sufficiently spaced for the insertion of the sleeve. To seperate the sleeve from the reel we perform a pre-cut by a perforation across the sleeve web at register;
therefore the pre-perforated tubular fed to the application head, in a flat shape opened and shaped on a mandrel in the shape required by the container to be labeled, has a minimal abundance in perimeter allowing a very low energy consumption and minimum lay flat.
Finally the sleeve is thermally retracted inside the tunnel.
