Sleevematic sleeve label applicator

    A machine series for all sleeve types

    The proper outfit for every situation

    How to dress so that it looks nice but is also practical? A simple question – at least with regard to many consumables. Your answer: sleeves! Flexible plastic films seamlessly adapt to the most varying container shapes and offer a lot of space for many eye-catching designs. At the same time, they prove to be especially robust in everyday life: whether rain or long transport distances, sleeves make containers look great in any situation.

    We think: such a multifaceted decoration variant deserves an equally talented machine technology. Therefore, the Krones Sleevematic is classified into four different model variants. Shrinking, stretching, or both alternately? Small output or top-speed operation? The Sleevematic series provides the proper technology for each application.

    All models at a glance

    • Sleevematic M: wide output range for shrink sleeves
    • Sleevematic TS: the turbo machine for shrink sleeves
    • Sleevematic AF: proven technology for stretch and shrink sleeves
    • Sleevematic ES: processing of super-elastic stretch sleeves

    Sleevematic M – benefits for you

    Short change-over times

    The Sleevematic M can be changed to other formats within minimum time.

    High-precision sleeve application

    The servo-controlled cutting unit grants exact cutting lengths. The belt station can exactly be adjusted in millimetres and thereby ensures infinitely variable adjustment of the sleeve height on the container.

    Hygienic design

    The machine base frame is completely made of stainless steel. The container handling parts are of open design and therefore easily cleaned.

    Sleevematic TS – benefits for you

    Thanks to rotary cutters which perforate the film sleeve continuously in stead of in cycles, the Sleevematic TS can process 50,000 containers per hour. The highly precise perforation blades ensure a straight cut even at high speed.

    A set of perforation blades can perform 70 million cuts before it wears out. Conventional cutting units can only master a tenth of this.

    The change-over of the perforating blade takes 2 minutes.

    The change-over to other sleeve lengths does not require any handling parts change-over . Owing to the fact, that the rotating perforation cutters are operating regardless of the format, the Sleevematic TS requires significantly less handling parts than all other sleeving systems.

    Sleevematic AF – benefits for you

    Long-life design

    The rugged mechanical design makes sure that the Sleevematic AF provides a high operational reliability and a long service life.

    Precise operation

    The cam-controlled application fork reliably transmits the sleeve label onto the container. Even humidity and moisture do not affect machine operation: In any case, it ensures perfectly fitting sleeves.

    Uncomplicated and flexible technology

    The machine is suitable for handling different sleeve lengths and diameters. It can be easily cleaned and provides optimum access and is therefore an agreeable partner in day-to-day operation.

    Sleevematic ES – benefits to you

    Maximum flexibility

    Stretch today and shrink tomorrow? That is everyday operation for the Sleevematic ES: The multi-flexible machine is able to process all sleeve variants, even the super elastic TripleS sleeves.

    Permanent saving of material costs

    Thanks to their high elasticity, stretch sleeves consume only little plastic during production. The super elastic TripleS sleeves save up to 30 percent material costs as compared to shrink sleeves.

    Lower energy consumption

    You do not require a shrinking tunnel, nor a container drying unit to process the stretch sleeves.
