Shrink Sleeve Technology Adapts to Perishable Food Packaging Requirements

March 12, 2014

PDC International Corp. offers a shrink banding system with a customized tooling and product handling package that makes it practical and efficient for a broad range of applications. The PDC Model 75C-E shrink bander is high-volume shrink sleeve technology adapted for the sleeving of fresh and frozen oysters, an application that is particularly challenging due to the inconsistent dimensions of the product. It uses a patented proprietary technology that positively handles sleeving material through feeding, cutting, and application with consistency. The PDC Model 75 applies shrink sleeves at up to 400 cpm, depending on sleeve dimensions. Banding material diameters range from .375 to 3.5 in., and band heights range from .625 to 9 in. for tamper-evident banding or full height shrink sleeving.
