The Portable Shrink Sleeve Label Applicator
The SST Shrink Sleeve Machine is a compact and portable alternative to large, room-sized steam tunnels typically used for shrink-sleeve labeling. With a footprint of only 4 square feet for operation and a table space requirement of 2 square feet, the SST offers efficiency without occupying much space. It provides performance comparable to automatic industrial sleeving machines without the bulk. The SST allows for easy container sleeving in just one second by dropping them down the steam-head tunnel. It is compatible with shrink-sleeve bands, partial, and full-body labels. The SST requires no recalibration – simply turn it on and start sleeving.
Shrink Sleeve Label Applicator
Shrink sleeve labels are a great choice for professional branding because they cover more of your product’s container than traditional labels. They also have a built-in tamper-evident perforated seal.
Unlike other types of shrink-sleeve labeling equipment that require frequent repairs and recalibration, the SST is easy to use and works well with PET, PVC, and OPS labels.
Using steam heat to shrink and seal the labels is preferred because it applies them without damaging the product inside. Additionally, steam heat reduces wrinkles and bubbles, which can be a problem with other heat application methods such as heat guns. Unlike traditional glued labels, shrink sleeve labels come off easily without damaging the container or leaving sticky residue, making them a more environmentally friendly option.
Upgraded Steam Head Ver. 2
Upgrade to a Steam Head Version 2 for improved compatibility with heavier, glass, and uniquely shaped packaging. This advanced steam head features a servo-actuated stopper, which momentarily pauses sleeved containers midway for an additional burst of heat. This extra heating time ensures a smooth and bubble-free shrink wrap on heavy containers such as glass tinctures, bottles, jars, and cans.
Furthermore, the Steam Head Version 2 enables larger and more intricate sleeves and containers to be fully wrapped in just one second. This enhancement makes it much easier to shrink sleeves around deep grooves and curves. The motorized system is also equipped with “ready-to-go” lights that indicate when to catch and insert the next container.
Variable Information Printers
This thermal printer laptop bundle is designed to print variable text directly onto our shrink sleeves, which is helpful for customers who need to update batch information for each round of sellable products. Additionally, it has the capability to print a range of other information such as QR codes, compliance text, special offers, ingredients, and testing results.
This printer works by using a thermal transfer ribbon instead of print cartridges. It is straightforward to set up, taking only five minutes with the pre-loaded software. The printer comes equipped with a built-in cutter attachment that can cut up to 900 sleeves per hour.
