The Krones Sleevematic applies sleeve films that are then shrunk onto the bottle contours and can also provide tamper-evidence in the neck region. Both machines rely on a "fitting fork" to pull labels onto bottles. This design obviates the need for a vacuum device to open up the sleeve film, and thus does not require an additional transfer unit.
