PDC International Corp., Norwalk, Conn., introduced the newly re-engineered 65 Series Shrinksealer for continuous production environments. PDC shrinksealer 65

Ideally suited for shrink sleeve labeling, the sleeve label extends over the cap with a horizontal perforation for tamper evidence on jars, bottles and other containers.

The machinery also performs tamper-evident banding around the upper portion of a container and its closure, and applies full-height safety seals.

65 Series machines operate at 50-175 containers per minute with maximum speeds dependent on package dimensions.

All 65 Series Shrinksealers use PDC's patented blade assemblies, which operate dust-free and prevent the "hairs" that plague spinning knife devices. Also, PDC blades can be repeatedly re-sharpened and are reversible, so a single set provides double the value. They are compatible with all major sleeving and labeling films, including PVC, PET, PETG, PLA and OPS.

Other standard features include full safety enclosure, heavy duty mechanical construction, Allen-Bradley PLC control, an HMI touchscreen, keyed run/jog switch and upstream photo-eyes. Optional features include barcode scanners, splice detection, imprint verifiers, power transformers, motorized height adjustment and servo band feed.
