Parts Of Shrink Sleeve Machine

Sleeve Roll Carrier

Shrink sleeve roll is loaded and carried in the machine through carrier and it can be done automatically or manually.

Electric Motor System

Conveyers, rollers and all other moving parts of the machine are controlled through the electric motor system.

Conveyer System

Conveyer belts, guide rails are components that aid the movement of sleeve rolls and products from one station to another.

Container Separating Assembly

Once the containers have been loaded into the system, an assembly of equipment aids in classifying them into categories.

Separation procedure is done depending on the instructions through the PLC system.

Container Positioning System

Once the containers are loaded into the machine, the container positioning system aids in placing them in place for sleeving.

Cutter Mechanism

Cutting is necessary to separate the sleeve that has been applied to the container from the remaining roll.

A cutting mechanism is put in place to aid in carrying out this process.

Optical Scanner

An optical scanner is connected to the control system, HMI system, to aid in monitoring the whole shrink sleeving process.

Control System

A PLC system with a touch screen is put in place for entry of specifications, control and easy monitoring.

Through the control system, the operator is able to detect errors and stop the operation.

A touch screen interface allows the operator to troubleshot issues as they emerge.

Heat Tunnel

Heat is applied to the sleeve wrapped around the container at this station to create a completely clean sleave around the container.

Rotary Brushes

Rotary brushes are controlled by stepper motors to make sure that the shrink sleeve is wrapped properly on the container.

How Shrink Sleeve Applicator Machines Works

Loading the Shrink Sleeve Film

Shrink sleeve in a roll n is loaded onto the machine manually or automatically and is placed in position for wrapping on the product.

Loading the Products to Be Shrink-Sleeved

After the film roll has been loaded, products are also loaded into the product hoppers getting ready to be wrapped.

Container Separation

At this point, she machine is instructed through the control system on how to categorise containers into groups as required.

Wrapping The Products Using The Sleeves

At the wrapping station, the shrink sleeves are wrapped loosely on the surface that requires sleeving through an automated system.

Shrink sleeving can be done before or after filling the containers with products.

However, this will depend on the type of sleeve used.

Cutting Of The Sleeve

Cutting is done at this stage to separate the remaining sleeve roll from what has been applied onto the container.

Application Of Heat

Through the conveyer system, controlled through the electric motor, the loosely wrapped contained is moved to the tunnel.

At the tunnel heat is applied to the sleeve through steam, or electric or radiant source of heat.

Heat is meant to raise the temperature or the shrink sleeve so that it can shrink to the surface of the container.

Shrink sleeving obtained through steam as the source of heat produces better results compared to the other two sources.

Container Ejection

Once the sleeve has been shrunk onto the container, conveyer system moves it out of the machine to the next step.

Features To Look For In Shrink Sleeve Applicator Machine

Level Of Automation

Shrink sleeve applicator could be automatic or semi-automatic depending on the machine features.

Level of automation will depend on the speed needed for your operations and the capacity to be produced.

Fully automatic shrink sleeve applicator can run at speeds of approximately 300 BPM and is suitable for large scale production.

Material Used For Construction

A rigid stable structure will make the machine durable and stable and very reliable during operations.

Best shrink sleeve applicator machines are made from materials such as stainless steel and anodized aluminium alloys.

However, durability needs will be determined by the duration a company plans to use the machine for.

PLC Control System

A fully automated shrink sleeve applicator machine performs all the functions involved in the process.

Therefore, for easy control and monitoring of the whole process, a PLC system with a touch screen is necessary.

This choice will be determined by a number of factors including cost, production capacity and efficiency requirements.


A machine that can work with a wide range of products is an advantage because in will save on expenses.

Versatile shrink sleeve applicator can work with container materials like plastic, glass, tin, pet, corrugated containers etc.

Again, the choice will depend on the company needs, choose what suits your needs.

Temperature Controller

Temperature control is one of the most important functions of a shrink sleeve applicator machine.

Controlling temperature will ensure that the shrinking process takes place as required to avoid overheating or underheating the sleeve.

A digital temperature controller is suitable for such and it will help to minimize damages on the containers and sleeves.

Easy And Minimized Maintenance

You should go for a machine with high cleaning feasibility contributed by less sharp corners, few crevices and smooth joints.

Cleaning should be easy and done manually and being able to dismantle the parts.

The kind of machine that does not require much maintenance because it has few mechanical components.

Uses Of Shrink Sleeve Machines

When integrated into a production line, shrink sleeve machine can perform functions like sleeve wrapping, cutting, shrinking and shaping.

Functions Of Shrink Sleeve Labellers

To begin the process, the sheet materials are printed through a digital printing press or a flexographic press.

Printing is done on the inside of the sleeve unlike in other labelling methods.

Printing is followed by creation of the sleeves and loading them onto rollers through an automated process.

Another function is to adjust the container design to the shrink sleeve.

A shrink sleeve labeller is designed in a way that it can distort the label on the sleeve.

Distorting the label is necessary to enable it to conform to the container size and shape.

Additionally, the machine is responsible for applying the sleeves onto the containers through the use of brushes.

Finally, a shrink sleeve labeller can be able to apply heat to the sleeve through the tunnel system.
