Krones, Inc: Eco-friendly, affordable labeler for stretch-sleeve films

Krones’ Sleevematic ES labeler is designed for handling stretch-sleeve films, allowing an extremely high stretch on beverage containers of up to 55%.

Made of recyclable LDPE, these films are an eco-friendly alternative to sleeves made from PVC. The high stretching capability of the material allows the sleeve to be smaller (less material). Since the stretch-sleeves are more than twice as elastic as conventional stretch-sleeves, they are  well suited for customized containers featuring very prominent contours. They require neither a shrink tunnel nor a container drier, resulting in energy savings. They look like shrink-sleeves, but without any energy-intensive shrink-on process.
