The PDC R-400 Shrink Labeler processes up to 400 containers per minute. The unit handles a broad range of packages including round, oval and square (including tapered) tubs, as well as cups and bowls and a wide range of rigid packages. Systems accommodate packages with capacities between 2 oz and 0.5 gal. It also configures easily into a multipacker. The product is a mandrel-style labeler wich uses a proprietary blade assembly, which is more effective and longer-lived than "spinning knives" that are standard in other equipment. Mandrels, feed screws and other "change" parts can all be switched out quickly thanks to a tool-less changeover feature and menu driven parameters.
