PDC International: Versatile multipacker

PDC International Corp. has updated and reintroduced a versatile packaging “workhorse” based on its popular shrink labeler; the PDC R-300 is a high-speed shrink labeler engineered for continuous use.

It quickly reconfigures from shrink labeler to multipacker, and easily back again. The system is compatible with rigid packages, cartons, bottles and cans; it accommodates special shapes with ease, and container capacities from 2 oz. to a gallon.

The R-300 is a mandrel-style design that opens and forms the sleeve into various shapes such as oval, square and rectangular. More importantly, it replaces the quick-dulling “spinning knives” typical on other sleeving machines with a proprietary heavy-duty knife assembly. PDC’s knives deliver clean, consistent cuts for months, without “hairs” or the ragged cuts produced by rotary cutters. PDC blades last months, not days.

The PDC R-300 is well suited to difficult applications, with available optional product handling that orients products in dual counter-rotating timing screws, then hands them off to servo-controlled gripper belts. This allows optimum presentation of packages for sleeving.
