Axon to Introduce New Tamper-Evident Banding & Shrink Sleeve Labeling Solutions at Pack Expo International 2022

Oct 13, 2022

RALEIGH, N.C., October 13, 2022 – Axon, a leading manufacturer of shrink sleeve, stretch sleeve, and tamper-evident band labeling systems, will showcase two new solutions in booth #5220 at Pack Expo International on October 23-26, 2022, at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Axon’s new tamper-evident band applicator, HydroTech™ TB, offers key advantages over applicators in the market today. It features a patented film-delivery system that significantly reduces rework caused by missed bands. Its ergonomic design allows operators to splice film while in operation and offers access to the film reel on the operator side, enabling efficient and fast changeovers with minimal downtime. Both features eliminate inefficiencies in tamper band application of round and non-round containers up to 7.4” commonly used in packaging dairy, sauces/dips, prepared foods, and confectionary products.

Axon is also introducing a new steam shrink tunnel, HE-500, at Pack Expo International 2022. It has been engineered with a patent-pending, drip-free design to prevent residual moisture. With the HE-500, settings can be adjusted while in operation to minimize downtime. Its patented design allows for high production capacity with reduced steam usage, making the HE-500 tunnel a very efficient solution for full body shrink applications, including nutraceutical and can sleeving.

“We’re excited to debut two new products at Pack Expo, our new tamper-evident band applicator, HydroTech, and a new steam tunnel, HE-500,” said Bob Williams, General Manager at Axon. “We’ve seen shrink applications become increasingly more complex over the years and the key to success comes down to how simple and easy it is to keep the system running. Both products were developed with the operator in mind, meeting our customers’ requirements for machine accessibility, productivity improvements, and line efficiency.”
