By the delivery of shrinking sleeves, it would have become easier for making the products to standing out in the competition especially if we talk about the bottled items. If we see it first, it would be the best way for selling up the items apart from packaging because it has the capability for printing the color, image of brand, and cleansing of the letter. This would be the perfect solution for packaging according to your desires.
If you had ordered the desired equipment also the sleeves of stock. After consuming the time on implementing the equipment for training of operating has made it difficult. This blog article will be helpful for the identification of the areas where shrinking sleeves are causing the problems.
The Causes of shrinking sleeves:
The shrinking of sleeves occurs because of the heat. If you encountered airflow in the hot tunnel, then there might be the chance that it will immediately shrink and will distort the back of the label. The reason that most of the companies are using shrinking sleeves for the steam tunnel. By usage of machinery, heat will be distributed equally and the chances will be minimized even if it is shrinking.
Solutions for reducing the rise of shrinking sleeves:
Examine all of these solutions as mentioned below:
Instead of an evaporative or radiating tunnel, a steam tunnel can be used:
You’re probably using an evaporative or radiating tunnel currently. Therefore, let’s compare these 2 types of equipment to a steaming shrinking tunnel.
- Evaporative Tunnel for Heat:
The evaporative tunnels are also known as shrinking hot tunnels because the machinery is responsible for creating the heat in them that is blown all over areas of shrink sleeves. This heat will be responsible for causing the products to shrink as well. The air which is commonly used in it is also called the baffle. This device will allow equal air distribution.
- Radiating Tunnel heat:
By the usage of radiant tunnel heat, the radiations are utilized by the machine instead of evaporating tunnel heat. In that tunnel, there are radiations of infrared that when absorbed will cause the shrinking of sleeves. For lowering the percentage of shrinking this type of machinery is a preferred choice. These types of tunnels are used by seal bands of heat, materials of packaging for tamper evidence.
- Steam Tunnels Heat:
These types of tunnels use steam instead of using the hot air that is required for the shrinking of sleeves. They are mostly used for the implementation for applications of tamper-evident. They are responsible for the production of dispersed shrinking. They only need the supply of water for working that’s why this type of machinery is considered to be very expensive.
- Steam Tunnels Heat That Is Self-Contained:
They are made up of high-run final labeling & applications of graphics. These tunnels have the abilities fir creating the heat of high ultra-uniform. For this reason, these tunnels are more superior compared with other tunnels.
- Usage of ridged containers:
If you are using this container for packaging the materials then the sleeves will grab themselves into another container. Inside the container, some ridges will allow the sleeves to bolt into a ridge. This will be responsible for holding sleeves in the place where there is a shrink in the heat of the tunnel.
- Usage of activated heat adhesives:
You should apply adhesives on the containers when they are entering the tunnel. For making sure that shrinking sleeves are stickled with the container when it is moving from the tunnel. The usage of adhesives is expensive and it will need some more material and the different types of new innovative machinery.
- Usage of risers’ puck for hoisting the products:
The best solution for shrinking sleeves is the implementation of a puck, it is a type of object which is utilized for boosting the products’ height. The addition of height will provide you the complete assurance that the products are sealed properly, without sleeve rising.
Other solutions that will work immediately:
The previously discussed solutions will help you in solving the issues of the rising shrinking sleeves, if you did not find them useful and these solutions are unable for solving a problem then you should examine the line of packaging that will lead you to examine the basis of the trouble. For this purpose, you are required to talk to our experts of house packaging, they will immediately detect the problem on the spot.
