PDC International Corp., Norwalk, Conn., introduced the F-160 Sanitary Design Shrink Bander, a robust, flexible system for the precise application of tamper-evident shrink bands to tapered and straight-wall canisters and tubs of spreads, ice cream, oatmeal, yogurt, toppings and dried fruit.

Fully mechanical, these systems perform without vacuum or pneumatic devices or spinning knives. Sanitary construction features include zero penetration of hollow frame members, motorized washdown modes for cleaning and stainless mesh guarding instead of the typical polycarbonate. 

F Series Shrink Banders operate at 30-400 cpm, can apply tamper-evident bands 1-2.3 inches high and 2.5-6.75 inches in diameter and are compatible with major commercial shrink sleeve films, including freezer-grade films such as PVC, PET, PETG, OPS and PLA films.
