Shrink Sleeve Labeling Machinery

Shrink sleeve labels conform to a container’s
 every curve, enabling complete decoration of unusual
 shapes – from top to bottom and 360 degrees around.

Shrink sleeve labels allow package designers 
to create distinct brand identities, while maximizing
the space for graphics, text, ingredients lists, UPC codes, and nutritional information. And, when the sleeve is extended over the cap with a horizontal perforation, product tamper evidence is added at minimal additional cost.

PDC industry-leading shrink sleeve labelers have a successful multi-decade track record, decorating everything from foods, beverages, personal products, confectionery products, vitamins, water flavorings and beer cans, to pens, lighters, rolls of tape, and more – virtually any type of rigid consumer product.

PDC Shrink sleeve labelers use PDC’s proprietary blade assemblies – a far more effective and longer-lived alternative to the fragile “spinning knives” that are standard in competitors’ equipment.

PDC Blades Last Months, Not Days.

PDC’s wide range of models, ensures there is a machine that meets your speed requirements and your budget. Some models can be configured as twin packers to unitize products for club stores and special offers.

With nearly 50 years of machine building experience, PDC guarantees the success of your shrink sleeving project.
