Axon works closely with producers of ready-to-drink beverages to configure machines that exceed performance requirements.
Each shrink sleeve, tamper band, or multipack system is designed to meet or exceed performance and quality requirements that producers of ready-to-drink beverages require. The application review process frequently involves container and material shrink testing at Axon's Raleigh, NC facility. Axon systems include high-speed to low-speed applicators and steam, radiant, and convection shrink tunnels, so when supplied as part of an integrated system, Axon's components offer unmatched performance.
For ready-to-drink beverage companies that require high-speed machine operation for demanding production environments, the Axon SLX shrink system is the ideal machine. With application speeds up to 800 cpm, the SLX is optimized for cylindrical ready-to-drink beverage containers with diameters from 1.2" (30mm) to 4.9" (125mm).
The SLX shrink systems typically include steam heat tunnels but radiant or convection heat tunnels are also available for select applications. SLX shrink systems
are used for full body shrink sleeves and tamper evident bands, making it a popular choice for ready-to-drink beverage companies.
