Automatic Shrink Sleeve Labeling Machine


Shrink sleeve labelers have flexible film shrink sleeve labels placed onto bottles using a sleeve applicator or sleeve labeler. The sleeves are then held in place by shrinking them using hot air or steam from a heat tunnel. VKPAK manufactures a variety of shrink sleeve labelers / sleeve applicators and heat tunnels for both full body sleeve labeling and tamper evident bands.

Our shrink sleeve labeling machines series use the newest shrink technology with large control touch screen. The humanize operation, the mainframe can be easy adjusted up and down with automatically. The labeling machine has been accurately designed, even use this machine with high speed for a long time, machine running is still very stable and smoothly.

Automatic sleeve labeling machine is suitable for kinds of bottle types, for example: round bottle, square bottle, flat bottle, curve bottle and cup-shaped.

Driving unit:

Synchronized transmission and drive by gear with one belt. The change of transmission belt will be finished quickly. Compared to the type of traditional multilayer whose change and maintain need more than six hours, its maintenance is easy and maintain is simple, so it doesn’t influence production.

Cutter head unit:

The new style cutting knife drived by servo motor, with high speed, more stable and precise, shrinks perfectly. Synchronous locating device enables the tolerable error to1mm. Unit cutter head plane design in China which applies to the container of D30mm—D130mm. You never need to change or debug it. Cutter head original transducer is inside the cutter head and when you take down cutter head, you do not need to correct the synchronous belt. It also has unique light touch human-machine screen, that means, auto search original location as well as safety and convenience which is ahead of other congener products.

Label feeding unit:

Single material shelf with reasonable height in order to make it convenient to install label. It adopts rotary potentiometer which enable the label feeding stable and fluent and avoid the error label length, label block and other problem when label feeding servo convey the label. It will stop automatically and give alarm light and also display on the touch screen.

Clean down unit:

Adopt with motor coordinating with double circular arc synchronous belt makes clean down plastic core-rubber-tires synchronously and ensures the label casting stably.

Bottle carrying system:

Adopted with mechanical transmission to drive the positioning belt on both sides. While changing the whole bottle carrying unit, the down and up, width are all controlled by one hand wheel aiming to synchronously and swiftly adjust.

Machine head up and down unit:

It adopts motor to up and down which enable the operation more convenient.

Electrical Configuration

It adopts PLC programmable controller, imported servo motor, servo driver, frequency converter and transducer; also, it adopts the positioning module to ensure the casting label precise, rapid and stable.

How Do Shrink Sleeve Labeling Machines Work?

Commonly used for food, beverage, or personal care items, shrink sleeve machines work by applying heat to shrink sleeve labels. The heat causes it to tightly conform to the body of the product’s packaging, creating an eye-catching label that can easily be recycled.

There are multiple types of shrink sleeve machines. The right one for your business depend on your industry’s demands.

Benefits of Shrink Sleeve Packaging

Besides high-speed production and reduced operating costs, switching to shrink sleeve labels improves your product. Here are a few ways this occurs:

  • Shrink sleeve allows for the product’s container to be fully recycled after use
  • Shrink sleeve labels can be used to create tamper evident band for easy product seals, empowering your customers to shop safely
  • Enables creativity to shine through the product’s packaging with 360° labeling
  • Labels can fit a wide range of product packaging sizes and shapes

VKPAK offers a full range of heat shrink sleeve label applicators for low, medium, and high speed production environments.

All VKPAK shrink material applicators are capable of performing up to five key sleeving applications:

  • Full body sleeves
  • Full body over-the-cap sleeves
  • Partial body sleeves
  • Tamper evident bands
  • Multi-packs

VKPAK shrink sleeve label applicators and systems are used in a wide variety of industries including fluid milk, craft beer, ready-to-drink beverages, cosmetics, home care products, and personal care products.

Their flexibility and reliable performance make them one of the best values in the shrink sleeving industry.
