EZ-Wide Low Speed, Wide Format Applicators

EZ-Wide applicators are the value priced, low to mid-speed models for containers requiring wide multipack, wide twin pack, wide tamper evident bands or wide shrink sleeve labels. They are vacuum style machines that use economical stepper motors for consistent, repeatable performance.

EZ-Wide includes a series of three models that accommodate film layflat widths up to 900 mm (35.4"). These models are ideal for applying multipack sleeves, tamper evident neck bands or shrink sleeve labels to large containers or multipacks.

EZ-Wide models are offered with single-head and dual head configurations and dual head configurations are capable of steady-state production speeds from 60 to 90 cpm depending on container size.

Like every Axon shrink sleeve applicator, EZ-Wide sleeve applicators offer the flexibility to perform five important shrink applications:

  • Multipacks 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.
