FILED IN:  Machinery  > Labeling
The machine’s MDO tube creation process saves up to 30% in the cost of label material, according to the company. Easily change from sleeving to hot glue roll-fed applications.  Create labels from:  PET, RPET, PVC, PE, PP, OPS and PLA.  50% thinner labels can be applied compared to a traditional sleever. 
 Since shrink sleeves are created and applied by a lengthwise reel, labels are closed with no need for glues or solvents, and the sealing area can be positioned exactly to the edge of the label:  the final overlap has no visual or tactile flaws after shrinkage.
