New Cup & Tub Shrink Labeler Combines High Speed with Fast Change-Over Capability

PDC International Corp.
8 Sheehan Ave.
South Norwalk, CT, 06854

Press release date: April 25, 2012

WHO BENEFITS? Producers who use dairy and beverage cups, food service companies, sports and other "arena event" promoters, companies who use microwaveable tubs for cereal and other products, and companies who want maximum "billboard space" on cups, tubs - and bowls.

Norwalk, CT. PDC International Corporation, a world leader in shrink seal and shrink label technology for foods, beverages and pharmaceuticals, has introduced a robust, multi-use shrink labeler that processes up to 400 containers per minute.

The PDC R-400 shrink labeler handles an exceptionally broad range of packages: round, oval and square (including tapered) tubs, also cups and bowls, and a wide range of rigid packages. Systems accommodate packages with capacities between two ounces and one half gallon. It also configures easily into a multipacker.

Depending on the container, the R-400 applicator can receive product right side up or upside-down. Graphics can extend fully in both directions: under the bottom of the cup, and over the structural flanges of the container, or up to the chime, for maximum visual appeal. This gives packagers unrivaled flexibility for communicating product information, important marketing messages and high quality graphic images.

The R-400 is a mandrel-style labeler which uses PDC's proprietary blade assembly - a far more effective and longer-lived alternative to the "spinning knives" that are standard in most competitors' equipment. Mandrels, feed screws and other "change" parts can all be switched out quickly thanks to PDC's exclusive "tool-less" changeover feature and menu driven parameters.

The R-400 is ideal for thin films (1.5 to 2 mils, 40 to 50 micron), and is compatible with all mono-axial, sustainable and freezer grade shrink sleeve films, including PVC, PET, PETG, OPS and PLA.

The R-400 Shrink Labeler has many important standard features, including a stainless steel frame, upstream photo-eyes, material monitoring sensors and an Allen Bradley PLC platform. It can be outfitted with product handling modules to group and precisely orient packages for consistent appearance. Engineered systems also include cup de-nesters, stackers, static eliminators, dryers to dissipate condensate and steam tunnels. Inline quality control inspection systems and bar code verification are also provided for many systems.

Like all PDC machinery, the R-400 labeling system is engineered for 24/7 operation, and is made in the USA. It uses standard, widely available components, and is ideally suited for manufacturers and contract packers who want speed, flexibility and reliability in a single "workhorse" system.
