Norwalk, CT (March 30, 2018) – PDC International Corp., a world leader in shrink seal and shrink label technology for packaging in the food, beverage, personal care and pharmaceutical industries, recently introduced its latest shrink labeler, the R-100. Part of the Evolution Series, the R-100 is an economical, compact system ideal for moderate speed applications and flexible enough for many kinds of products.
Based on concepts of PDC’s higher speed shrink labelers, the R-100 is perfect for shrink sleeving application speeds up to 120 containers per minute, allowing for a large product range. The machine can apply oriented graphics onto non-round containers such as ovals and squares. The R-100 also has the ability to run thin films. PVC, PETG, OPS and PLA labels in gauges as thin as 30 micron are all compatible. In addition, the R-100 can run tamper evident labels with horizontal and partial vertical perforation, as well as twin packing.
The R-100’s optional all stainless steel sanitary construction is ideal for food, beverage, pharma and wet environments. Product handling options include a metering wheel, and single or dual timing screws. Servo motors are used for label registration and application. The R-100 is easy to maintain as it uses all off-the-shelf purchased parts. PDC always provides the OEM part number for customers’ convenience.
Like all of PDC labelers, the R-100 uses PDC’s patented micro-perforation and separation cutting technology. With no spinning knives that can dull easily, the PDC system is far more durable, lasting months, not days. All units are built in the U.S.
With Total Vertical Integration, PDC manages every aspect of the in-house manufacturing process. The company fabricates machined parts and has total control over quality. This allows them to respond immediately to customers’ needs. Shrink tunnels, conveyors, vision, barcode, inspection, and coding systems can all be integrated into a complete sleeving system.
