Company has introduced the R-250 COER Evolution Shrink Labeler, which quickly orients round and non-round containers, and precisely aligns graphics for maximum visual impact. By integrating a third party container handler and close-coupling it with the PDC R-250 applicator, a single machine system is created that provides seamless container handling from orientation through labeling. After sleeving, the container travels through a PDC shrink tunnel system to complete the shrinking of the sleeve labels. The R-250 Evolution is a robust system, built for continuous use. The R-250 is distinctive in that it uses PDC’s proprietary blade assembly. Engineered as a longer-lived alternative to “spinning knives,” this proprietary cutting solution lasts months, not days, and is a formidable alternative to the fragile spinning knife configurations used in conventional sleeving systems. Product is controlled with an Allen-Bradley CompactLogix PLC, Touch Screen and Servos. Among the product's options is a barcode scanner with laser scanner engine that reads both 1D and 2D barcodes. Product applies full sleeve shrink labels and tamper evident sleeves at speeds of 50 to 300 containers per minute.
