The Axon applicators with ProTech functionality
Axon’s Lanzara next generation shrink-sleeve labeler is specifically designed to provide higher output and improved flexibility for up to 400 containers per minute (cpm). This OMAC PackML compliant machine can apply shrink-sleeve labels, tamper-evident bands, or multipacks with a sleeve lay flat width range of 2 to 8 inches (50 to 200 mm).
Axon’s Aurora series offers applicator speeds up to 300 full-body shrink sleeves per minute. The cantilevered frame is available in two stainless steel options: 304 grade for wet-filling rooms, or 316 grade for increased corrosion resistance. This makes the Aurora the ideal shrink-sleeve labeling choice for beverages, dairy products, household chemicals, nutraceuticals, and pharmaceuticals.
The 400SLX series is Axon’s high-speed shrink-sleeve applicator capable of up to 600 cpm on one head and up to 1,000 cpm on a dual head configuration. The 400SLX offers a wide range of standard features, such as a film cart with a festoon system that accumulates enough film to allow on-the-fly-splicing for nonstop operation.
