Piston filling machines are best suited for viscous products such as paste, creams, and even chunky products with large particulates. They are easy to use and simple to clean. These filling machines are heavy-duty sanitary stainless steel workhorses built to meet food grade standards and are commonly used in the editable products industry.
Positive Displacement Fillers are one of the most versatile filling machines available. They are capable of filling nearly any type of product that can be pumped. Each fill nozzle has a dedicated servo controlled pump that can move thin liquids, medium to heavy viscosity liquids and semi-solids, and products with large particulates. Because Positive Displacement Fillers are flexible they are often used by contract packagers who are constantly changing they type of product they are working with.
Shrink sleeve labels are a plastic preprinted film folded into a tube or “sleeve” that can be slipped over a container or container neck. They are placed loosely around a container and made of a thermoplastic material that when heat is applied, shrink tightly around the container. These types of labelers typically can deliver higher application speeds for less cost then a pressure sensitive counterpart.
Shrink sleeve labelers are also used for placing tamper evident bands. For these types of projects the sleeve is placed around the neck of the container rather then the entire body. Some Shrink Sleevers can also do both a full body sleeve combined with a tamper evident seal.
