In-line shrink sleeving

CREATIVE packaging, June 2014
 
The advantages of shrink sleeving are numerous. The increased presence of sleeved products on the shelves in the supermarket speaks volumes.

To name some advantages: sleeves are ideal for unconventional bottle contours that really stand out. They create much more decorating coverage compared to labels. In 3-7 seconds consumers decide which product to buy, you can imagine the importance of visual on-shelf appeal to the customer.

Sleeving can also have technical advantages such as the resistance to moist, incorporating a tamper evident seal, eliminating colorants on the bottle and reducing barrier requirements of the bottle such as UV inhibitors.
 
Kompak also has shrink sleeving capacity in house. Our sleeve applicator and steam tunnel stand in-line with the Breittner bottle filler (100ml-2ltr) and 2 cappers. The line is built to deal with a wide variety of bottles and caps, obviously especially tailored to asymmetric ones. The two in-line cappers enables customers to automatically place a cap and for example also a dosing cap in-line.
 
Sometimes it is not possible or desired to fill at Kompak, or the customer has no sleeving possibilities. In that case the sleeve applicator can also operate stand-alone, sleeving and packing your pre-filled bottles.
 
The applicator sleeves both full body as only sections of the bottle/pots (for example only sleeving a tamper evident strip). As long as the pack is between 13-30cm in height and 2½-11cm in depth/thickness.
 
Are you thinking of researching the possibilities of using shrink sleeves for your regular product range, a new product launch or promotional campaign? We can help you define the technical and financial consequences. At an early stage we can also advise you on the suitability of the bottle and what to be aware of when designing the graphics.
 
We invite you to give us a call.
