Axon to Showcase new HE-500 Steam Shrink Tunnel and Proven Sleeving Technologies at 2023 Craft Brewers Conference in Nashville, TN

Apr 06, 2023

RALEIGH, N.C., April 6, 2023 – Axon, a ProMach product brand, will be showcasing its latest technologies for craft brewers at the Craft Brewers Conference in Nashville, TN from May 8-10. The highlight of Axon's booth (#433) will be their recently released HE-500 steam shrink tunnel, which offers craft brewers a patented design for superior performance.

Craft brewers understand the importance of producing a high-quality product, and the HE-500 steam shrink tunnel offers a reliable and energy-efficient system that will help their products stand out on the shelf. With an integrated low-pressure steam generator, the HE-500 delivers superior shrink performance; and with minimal condensation in the tunnel, the finished product is markedly drier upon exit when compared to traditional steam tunnels. The HE-500 also offers operator-friendly controls, and the toolless changeover process is simple, intuitive and repeatable.

In addition to the HE-500, Axon will also showcase their EZ-150SL sleever, a value-priced, small footprint, mandrel-style shrink sleeve applicator designed to run up to 150 containers per minute. Developed with ready-to-drink beverage cans in mind, the EZ-150SL uses servo motion control to deliver consistent performance, making it an ideal solution for craft brewers looking to increase production efficiency.

“We understand the unique challenges that craft brewers face, and our products are designed to help them improve their manufacturing productivity and the shelf appeal of their end product,” said Bob Williams, Vice President and General Manager at Axon. “We are excited to showcase our latest technologies at the Craft Brewers Conference and discuss how we can help attendees improve output at a lower cost, delivering superior value to more customers.”

Axon will be conducting live demos of their sleeving and shrink tunnel technologies throughout the duration of the conference. Attendees are encouraged to stop by booth #433 to learn more about Axon's solutions for the craft beer industry.
