Aurora® Wide Mid-Speed, Wide Format Applicators

Aurora® Wide multi-pack, twin pack, tamper band, and shrink sleeve label applicators are the mid-speed, wide film format models in Axon's complete line of shrink sleeve systems. Aurora Wide applicators provide dependable, steady-state production speeds up to 250 containers, twin packs, or multi-packs per minute.

Aurora multi-pack tamper band and sleeve label applicators are mandrel style machines that use servo motion control to deliver consistent, repeatable performance. Container changeovers are tool-less and require less than ten minutes depending on product sizes and shapes.

Aurora applicators feature PackML programming and user interfaces which simplifies machine operation, maintenance, and line integration.

Like virtually every Axon shrink sleeve applicator, Aurora offers the flexibility to perform five important shrink applications:

  • Multi-packs and twin packs
  • Tamper evident bands
  • Partial body sleeves
  • Full body sleeves
  • Full body over-the-cap sleeves

This flexibility makes Axon shrink sleeve applicators one of the best values in the industry.
