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.
