RALEIGH, NC — Axon, powered by Pro Mach, features at Pack Expo East, February 27- March 1 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, the EZ-150SL shrink sleeve applicator and ThermoFlow shrink tunnel. This shrink sleeve duo applies labels at up to 150 bottles or cans per minute and was developed specifically for companies looking for a dependable, easy-to-use system at a moderate price. This new solution was introduced at Pack Expo last November. (Axon Booth # 1103)

Recognizing that many growing businesses are stepping up to automation for the first time and may not have maintenance personnel and machine operators with training in automation technology, the EZ-150SL is Axon’s lowest-priced mandrel-style machine and was designed for round-the-clock, intuitive operation. Featuring a stainless-steel frame, servo motor technology, and a multi-lingual color touchscreen interface, the EZ-150SL is the ideal choice for high productivity at up to 150 sleeves per minute throughput. And when the operation needs to increase production speed, contact the Axon Aftermarket Team and inquire about Axon Certified Upgrades, or consider trading in the EZ-150SL for a new Axon high speed machine.

The ThermoFlow is a new, compact, self-contained shrink tunnel designed for use with the EZ-150SL and other low to moderate speed production lines. The ThermoFlow features a 15-PSI low pressure steam generator and condensate collection system. Because it is low pressure, packaging operations do not need special licensing or certifications that are required for high pressure boilers.

Furthermore, the ThermoFlow easily adjusts the amount of steam appropriate for the size of container to minimize energy consumption. These units offer quick, tool-less changeovers between packaging formats for optimum line utilization. The cantilevered design of the ThermoFlow provides easy access to tunnel components for trouble free installation and maintenance. ThermoFlow is built for years of service with a rugged frame and stainless steel construction. It can easily be moved from one packaging line to another.

Axon personnel at Pack Expo East will also be available to discuss the new SLX-Series of high speed sleeve applicators available for line speeds running up to 600 or 800 containers per minute, respectively. The SLX machines are capable of running film as thin as 25 microns with the patent pending sleeve handling technology and represent a unique combination of easy operation and sophisticated technology – the ideal solution for trouble free operation at higher speeds.

Be sure to stop by the Axon Booth # 1103 to see the new EZ-150SL applicator and ThermoFlow steam shrink tunnel.
