Axon Aurora Wide-Format Mid-Speed Shrink Sleeve Applicator Axon Aurora Wide-Format Mid-Speed Shrink Sleeve Applicator Sleeve Types

Dependable Multi-Pack Shrink Sleeving Speeds Up to 250 CPM

Axon Aurora Wide multi-pack, twin pack, tamper band, and shrink sleeve label applicators are the mid-speed, wide film format provide dependable, steady-state production speeds up to 250 containers, twin packs, or multi-packs per minute.

These shrink sleeve applicators are capable of applying sleeves to containers or multi-packs up to 9.8" in diameter.

Aurora multi-pack, tamper band, and sleeve label applicators are mandrel style machines that use servo motion control to deliver consistent, repeatable performance. Container changeovers are tool-less and require less than ten minutes depending on product sizes and shapes.

Axon Aurora applicators feature PackML programming and user interfaces which simplify machine operation, maintenance, and line integration.
