For 30 years, Marburg has been the industry leader in shrink labeling. Today, shrink labeling is one of the most widely used labeling systems in a huge variety of industries. From food packaging companies to cosmetic companies, businesses in industries across the board are taking advantage of this inexpensive, quick, and safe method of sealing jars, bottles, and containers.

One of the most important parts of any shrink labeling machine is the heat shrink tunnel. Marburg’s heat shrink tunnel is the final part of the labeling process�after the label has been mechanically fitted to the product, the product is sent via conveyer belt through the tunnel. The heat shrink tunnel uses two 3,0000-watt CAL rods to radiate heat onto the label, shrinking it to fit the container.

The heat shrink tunnel eliminates costly manual labor and raises profits. At 22 inches, its compact size eliminates the need for a long conveyer and is energy-efficient. It can handle containers of a variety of shapes and sizes, making it a multitasking powerhouse that can switch easily from one product to another. Its dual controls and durable stainless steel construction make it user-friendly and reliable. Marburg’s heat shrink tunnel can easily be installed in-house using standard tools.

If your company grows, and at some point in the future you require higher productivity rates, you can always upgrade your heat shrink tunnel with additional equipment like heat tunnel lifts, conveyors, vertical and horizontal perforation and photo registration. With these options, you can turn your compact heat shrink band applicator into a versatile, powerful shrink banding machine.

A heat shrink tunnel from Marburg is a labor-saving, cost-reducing way to add efficiency to your packaging process. Just ask Bob LaJoice of Universals Food jar line. In an interview with online trade magazine, he says it all in a few words: It’s small, has high-speed capability, it’s reliable and it was inexpensive. What more could you want?
