PDC/Marburg Alliance Provides Cost-Effective Shrink Sleeving Machinery for Beer and Beverage Industry

A unique bi-coastal partnership between two family-owned machinery companies, Connecticut-based PDC International and Marburg Industries in California, has produced an economical shrink sleeve labeling system combining the best of both company’s innovative technologies. The system is a great value for an entry-level investment or when moderate speeds are needed. With the ability to add eye-catching shrink sleeve labels, the PDC/Marburg system is ideal for labeling food and beverage bottles as well as cans for beer and other beverages.

The shrink sleeving system is a combination of a Marburg 625 FB Shrink Sleeve Applicator and a PDC KSA-70 Steam Shrink Tunnel. The Marburg applicator includes a 16-foot stainless steel conveyor that can handle speeds of 100 bottles per minute. The PDC KSA-70 is a three-zone steam tunnel. The first zone enables the anchoring of the label under the bottle’s bottom radius; the subsequent two zones cover the body and neck, focusing steam with pinpoint accuracy. Overall, the two machines offer simplicity of operation and ease of changeover. They occupy a small footprint on the plant floor and can easily fit on any production line.
