Shirnk Sleeve Device is a notable invention in the process of wrapping multiple products of various sizes and texture. This equipment is a reliable and most anticipated choice of packaging that reduces man power consumption and other packaging related activities to a great extent. The addition of suitable conveyor to this machine saves more time and helps to obtain excellent productivity in relatively small time frame.
Starting from branding requirement to safety prospects, and to increase the level of identity amidst identical products, shrink sleeve label applicator device remains a great solution.
Apart from that there are some important advantages from the perspective of packaging such as,
Shrink Sleeve mechanism works with multiple aspects. They are shrink tunnel, conveyor, sleeve feeding, perforators, etc. The material is fed into the tunnel with the help of PLC control and slat conveyors support for sending product one by one into the tunnel. The tunnel is the main location where wrapping material gets heated and ready to stick and shrink over the product perfectly. The packaged products are then sent one by one with the help of conveyors. The mechanism of each part of shrink sleeves is discussed below;
Tunnel provides the support for making hot sleeves which can be readily wrapped on products or containers. The tunnels are available with different mechanisms which can be chosen based on the wrapping material and its compatibility with the type of heat produced inside the tunnel. Consumers can choose hot air tunnel or radian heat tunnels as per the labeling material texture and compatibility.
Roller conveyor or Slat Conveyor is a type of conveyor applied for transmitting products one by one for processing products which are to be wrapped with hot shrink sleeves.
PLC helps for precise sleeve feeding. It can control multiple operations in sleeve applicator including control of sleeve cutters, conveyors, speed of material feeding, control on length of the sleeve, etc. Another important benefit of PLC control is that this mechanism really reduces the need for different mechanical parts for controlling or managing the above mentioned processes in shrink sleeve application.
Shrink sleeve applicator is versatile equipment when it comes to secondary packaging requirements. It is suitable to wrap variety of products irrespective of size and shape and remains a cost effective wrapping option.
