Contract Sleeving - Contract Shrink Banding
MPI provides Contract Sleeving that can prove to be cost-effective for applying shrink sleeves to your manufactured products.
Our sleeving line offers both automated and manual application. The automated line consists of a shrink applicator, conveyor, and steam tunnel. The heat process (steam tunnel or hot air) allows the label to shrink to the contour of your product.
Shrink sleeve applications include:
- Full body shrink sleeves
- Tamper evident neck bands
- Multi-packs, shrinking products together (clear or printed)
Our shrink applicator capability dimensions are 80mm – 160mm lay flat, and 50mm – 200mm cut length with the necessary tooling.
The steps in our sleeving process include unpacking your product, inspection, placing on conveyor, applying the shrink, inspection, packaging, and drop shipping to the customer.
Contract Sleeving can be beneficial for:
- Market testing for a new product
- Inventory management
- Eliminating purchase of equipment
- Shrinking products together for special sales or promotions
Multi-packs are also known as twin packs or variety packs
