The Aesus entry-level shrink sleeve label applicator is very compact and user-friendly.
Whether your requirement is to apply a safety seal (neck band) or a full-body decorative sleeve at moderate speed, the ECO Shrink Sleeve Label Applicator will meet your expectation. At only 14’’ wide, it will fit into most bottling lines without modifications.
The Allen Bradley Touch Screen (HMI) is intuitive and let you control all the parameters of the shrink sleeve applicator such as speed, delays, sleeve length adjustment. The HMI also displays machine status and the PLC is also ready to control accessories such as the perforation unit, the band tapper, the feedscrews etc.
The sleeve is fed by two rollers powered by servo motors, which allows perfect control of the film and therefore high accuracy. For generic neck band material, the band length is adjusted from the touch screen. Both clear and printed sleeve material can be run on the same machine with the optional photo registration sensor.
The neck bands or shrink sleeves are applied to the container directly from the mandrel. This means there is no secondary side transfer or vacuum cups or other movement. Shrink sleeves go directly onto the container and a guillotine knife cuts the material. As we apply directly from the Mandrel you can have a sleeve that more closely fits the container, thereby saving band material cost, and giving better final shrink characteristics. The closer the material fits the container the smaller percentage of shrink needed.
The stainless steel frame and interlock safety guards of the shrink sleeve label applicator makes is suitable for most production environment in industries like beverage, food, nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic. The electrical cabinet located at the back of the machine is easily accessible and ergonomic.
Thanks to the patented indexing starwheel, changeovers are performed quickly and easily. The time saved adds up rapidly... helping pay for the shrink sleeve applicator over and over.
