Axon New Shrink Sleeve ApplicatorGUADALAJARA, MexicoAxon, powered by ProMach, will display at Expo Pack, June 13-15, the company’s newest shrink sleeve label applicator designed for those companies looking to increase production and efficiency through rugged, dependable automation. In combination with Axon’s ThermoFlow shrink tunnel, the EZ-150SL applies vibrant, eye-catching labels at up to 150 cans or bottles per minute. Company representatives will also highlight Axon’s remote technical support and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) solutions. (Axon Expo Pack Booth # 2510) 

The applicator and tunnel combination was developed for packagers that will benefit from flexibility in labeling multiple stock keeping units (SKUs) on the same line. When a new label is needed, operators simply change a roll of film on the EZ-150SL. Shrink sleeves provide a more vibrant retail-shelf presentation, on average, than either printed cans or paper labels. In fact, most consumers can’t tell the difference between blank cans covered from top to bottom with colorful film labels and preprinted cans other than the labeled cans look lively. Axon puts the ‘EZ’ in machines in terms of easy to operate. The EZ-150SL features a rugged stainless-steel frame that provides years of service.

The ThermoFlow is a new, compact, self-contained shrink sleeve heat tunnel designed for use with the EZ-150SL. The ThermoFlow features a 15-PSI low pressure steam generator and condensate collection system. Because it is low pressure, companies will not need high pressure boilers for considerable savings. Furthermore, the ThermoFlow easily adjusts the amount of steam appropriate for the size of container to minimize energy consumption and to achieve proper shrink to the label. These units offer quick, tool-less changeovers between different package sizes and types. ThermoFlow features a rugged frame and stainless steel construction. It can easily be rolled out of the way when not in use.  

Axon  offers  technology to provide customers with fast, effective remote technical support and machine monitoring capabilities. This technology enables companies of all sizes to maximize uptime and throughput through real time diagnostics and troubleshooting.

Be sure to stop by the Axon Booth # 2510 to see the new EZ-150SL applicator. For more information about this innovative company, call 1-800-598-8601 and visit
