Axon Introduces a New Generation of Steam Shrink Tunnels

Nov 03, 2009

Raleigh, NC - Axon, a division of ProMach, introduces ThermoPoint(tm), a new generation of steam tunnels that ensure a quality shrink process for labels and tamper evident bands even on the most challengingly shaped packaging. The ThermoPoint steam tunnel is easy to use and maintain and also decreases downtime by facilitating fast changeover between products.

Each of the tunnel's heat zones - ThermoPoint comes in three or six zone configurations - can be independently adjusted to deliver steam to the label or band at different rates, heights, and angles. This level of precision leads to improved control of the shrink process and ultimately to higher quality, consistency, and throughput.

Heat zone graduated dials and steam injector adjustment indicators not only enable precise control of the process, but also ensure repeatability between batches. Additional key features include:

  • Double-shell design, which keeps temperature outside the unit cooler
  • Steam evacuation flues, that allow independent regulation of steam and temperature in each zone
  • A tray underneath the tunnel to collect condensate
  • Easy access to components and intuitive design, helping to speed-up and simplify maintenance
  • Durable stainless steel construction
