Multi-Color upgrades shrink sleeve production
Multi-Color Corporation, headquartered in Cincinnati, OH, USA, has upgraded its shrink sleeve label production capabilities with the addition of a seamer and two inspector/ rewinders from Stanford Products. The purchase is part of Multi-Color’s continued investment in the growing shrink sleeve market.
Multi-Color’s new seamer is designed to eliminate the problem of open seams that are the major cause of label applicator downtime. This new system provides precise solvent application control that is matched with machine speed ensuring consistent metering of solvent. The seamer is meant to provide the capacity to handle increasing shrink sleeve production at economical prices to Multi-Color’s customer base.
Designed for shrink sleeve applications, the inspector/rewinders perform 100 percent inspection at high speeds. The oscillating action of the winder reduces the pressure on the seams and folds, making them less visible on the finished product.
