Aurora Wide Mid-Speed, Wide Format Applicators

Aurora® Wide 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 or multi-packs per minute.

These mandrel style applicators are capable of applying tamper bands, sleeve labels or multipack sleeves to containers or multi-packs up to 9.8" (250mm) in diameter.

Aurora Wide tamper band and sleeve applicators 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 Wide and 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 multiple important shrink applications:

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

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

  • Features & Benefits

    • Size range flexibility - Container or multi-pack diameters range from 1.2" (30 mm) to 4.9" (125 mm). Larger sizes are compatible with Aurora Wide applicators
    • Fast, tool-less size changeovers - Size changeovers can be completed in less than ten minutes depending on container sizes and shapes
    • Servo motion control - Dedicated servo drives for the feedscrew, film feed system, and cutting assembly deliver fast, accurate film feeding, registration and cutting
    • Intuitive, industry standard PackML programming & HMI user interfaces - Consistent terminology, consistent screen displays and standardized program structures enhance ease of operation and maintenance
    • Auto-reversing cutter assembly & dual edge blades - Dual edge cutting blades with a programmed auto-reversing cutting system extends blade life and reduces frequency of blade replacement
    • Electronic height adjustment - Push-button system eliminates manual hand-crank height adjustments
    • Pivoting head assembly - Film orientation is easily adjusted for non-round containers by rotating the sleeving head assembly up to 90°
    • Sealed-for-life bearings - Lubrication free bearings and servo motion control make the Aurora a lubrication free machine
  • Options

    • Automatic Speed Control - Enables machine to automatically increase or decrease speeds based on line conditions
    • Print Registration - Fiber optic sensor reads film registration marks so the PLC can calculate cut lengths to assure sleeve length accuracy
    • Vertical, Horizontal & T Perforators - Add perforations to enhance ease of opening
    • Infeed Timing Screws - Required for multi-packs, certain container geometries
    • Product Spacers - Separate containers at infeed to assure smooth production rates
    • Film Unwind - Dual-reel film unwind with festoon film accumulation + manual splice on the fly
