The machine eliminates both the need to use full body sleeve labels when only partial bottle coverage is desired and the need to settle for traditional bottles when sleek, shoulderless bottles are preferred for visual appeal. It is designed for the pharmaceutical, nutrition, and cosmetics industries as well as other packaging industries.
It integrates Deitz's NB1 neck banding machine with its BCV2 hugger belt conveyor. The TE packaging system grips and holds the bottle in place as the shrink band is applied at the desired height and held in place without slipping down the bottle. A heat gun begins shrinking the band as it moves downstream to the companion heat shrink tunnel for complete sealing. Designed for versatility, the SBB may be quickly adjusted to accommodate a wide range of bottle heights and diameters and may be switched from applying shrink bands to full sleeve labels and back in minutes.
