working process

process of sleeve shrink labeling machine scaled

Sleeve Labeling Machine operates by conveying all bottled water via a belt. The machine utilizes a knife plate to automatically cut a label and apply it as a sleeve onto the bottle. A high-sensitivity photoelectric system reads the passage of each bottle. Although each bottle receives a sleeve label during this process, the label is not yet tightly affixed to the bottle.

Subsequently, the bottles with PVC labels move through a shrink tunnel that emits high-temperature steam. The steam serves to heat the PVC label, causing it to shrink and tightly adhere to the bottle. This final step ensures that the label becomes securely fitted to the bottle, providing a sleek and well-finished appearance.


layout of sleeve shrink llabeling machine for small bottled

The layout of the sleeve labeling machine involves a conveyor belt system that spans a total length of 7 meters, extending from the beginning to the end of the production line.

The conveyor belt runs through the sleever machine and the shrink tunnel. It is powered by a motor, which drives the movement of the conveyor belt.

This setup ensures a seamless and efficient process as bottles or containers move through the sleeve labeling machine and subsequently pass through the shrink tunnel, where the PVC labels tightly adhere to the bottles through the application of hot gas.

The motor-driven conveyor system plays a key role in facilitating the entire sleeve labeling process.
