Norwalk, CT (March 8, 2019) – For companies looking to apply both shrink sleeves and tamper evident neckbands on their products, PDC’s 50 Series is a sleeving machine that does both. The 50 Series is especially ideal for tamper evident banding on foods, sauces, dressings, vitamins and pharmaceutical products. Extremely robust and highly efficient, the 50 is a rugged, reliable yet economical unit that provides high value at a low total cost of ownership.
Tamper evident neck bands provide consumer confidence at the point of purchase, where critical buying decisions are made. Neck bands also cover the fill lines in clear bottles of sauces and dressings, and add marketing real estate to the neck area to help reinforce brand messaging.
For brands requiring tamper evident bands, the Model 50 provides a wide range of flexibility. The 50 applies shrink bands around the upper portion of containers and closures, or full height safety seals over the entire body of the container and closure. In addition, the Model 50 can perforate both vertically and horizontally. When a sleeve is perforated horizontally and extends up over the cap, tamper evidence can be built into a full shrink sleeve label, combining two functions in one.
PDC manufactures the 50 Series in a range of models to match a company’s application requirements. This series runs at a maximum speed of 130 per minute and sleeve sizes range from .375” to 3” in sleeve diameter and .625” to 7” in height. The 50 Series’ heavy-duty mechanical construction with stainless steel frame ensures super high efficiency and uptime. For ease of use, an Allen-Bradley PLC is standard on the unit, along with AB VFD drives and a touch screen.
Also standard on the Model 50 are PDC’s patented cutting blades, which can be re-sharpened repeatedly. These blades are not the fragile spinning knives found on many sleeving machines, which dull quickly. PDC blades last for months, not days.
Options on the Model 50 include various sensors, including those for fallen bottles or downstream jams. Conveyors, inspection systems and a wide range of shrink tunnels, including hot air and steam, are also available.
