At Pack Expo Las Vegas booth #5801 South Lower Hall, packaging machinery manufacturer Deitz Company, Wall, NJ, plans to unveil the Pharmafill(TM) Shoulderless Bottle Bander (SBB).
To be exhibited for the first time, the new tamper-evident shrinkbanding system enables pharmaceutical, nutrition, cosmetics, and other packagers to automatically apply shrinkbands to bottles with no lip or shoulder.
The novel bottle shrink sleeve labeling machine eliminates both the need to use full body sleeve labels when only partial bottle coverage is desired and the need to settle for traditional bottles when sleek, shoulderless bottles are preferred for visual appeal.
To be shown at the booth in full operation, the Shoulderless Bottle Bander integrates the company's NB1 neck banding machine with its BCV2 hugger belt conveyor.
The tamper-evident packaging system grips and holds the bottle in place as the shrinkband is applied at the desired height and held in place without slipping down the bottle. A heat gun begins shrinking the band as it moves downstream to the companion heat shrink tunnel for complete sealing. Designed for versatility, the SBB may be quickly adjusted to accommodate a wide range of bottle heights and diameters and may be switched from applying shrinkbands to full sleeve labels and back in minutes.
Live demonstrations are offered at the booth and may be scheduled in advance.
