Sidel Inc: Rotary labeler
Sidel’s Rollsleeve rotary labeler creates and applies plastic shrink sleeves at up to 54,000 bph from a machine direction orientation (MDO) label roll onto glass, plastic and metal containers--resulting in highly customized container 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.
