Axon Showcases at WestPack a New Shrink Sleeve Applicator and Shrink Tunnel Combination

Feb 01, 2017

RALEIGH, NC — Axon, powered by ProMach, features at WestPack, February 7-9 at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, Calif., the new EZ-150SL shrink sleeve applicator and ThermoFlow shrink tunnel. This shrink sleeve duo applies labels at up to 150 bottles or cans per minute and was developed specifically for companies looking for a dependable, easy-to-use system at a moderate price. (Axon Booth # 5320)

Recognizing that many growing businesses are stepping up to automation for the first time and may not have maintenance personnel and machine operators with training in automation technology, the EZ-150SL is our lowest-priced mandrel-style machine, and was designed for round-the-clock, intuitive operation. Featuring a stainless-steel frame, servo motor technology, and a multi-lingual color touchscreen interface, the EZ-150SL is the ideal choice for low-cost, improved performance. And when the operation is ready for a step up in production speed, contact the Axon Aftermarket Team and inquire about Axon Certified Upgrades, or consider trading-in the EZ-150SL for a new Axon machine.

The ThermoFlow is a new, compact, self-contained shrink tunnel that features a 15-PSI low pressure steam generator and condensate collection system. Because it is low pressure, packaging operations do not need special licensing or certifications that are required for high pressure boilers.

Furthermore, the ThermoFlow easily adjusts the amount of steam appropriate for the size of container to minimize energy consumption. These units offer quick, tool-less changeovers between packaging formats for optimum line utilization. The cantilevered design of the ThermoFlow provides easy access to tunnel components for trouble free installation and maintenance. ThermoFlow is built for years of service with a rugged frame and stainless steel construction. It can easily be moved from one packaging line to another.

Axon personnel at WestPack will also be available to discuss the new SLX-Series of high speed sleeve applicators available for line speeds running up to 600 or 800 containers per minute. The SLX machines are capable of running film as thin as 25-microns with the patent pending S.L.T. technology, and represent a unique combination of easy operation and sophisticated technology – the ideal solution for trouble free operation at higher speeds.

Be sure to stop by the Axon Booth # 5320 to see the new EZ-150SL applicator and ThermoFlow steam shrink tunnel.
