The F-160 Evolution shrinkbander is a flexible system that applies shrinkbands around the lids of tapered and straightwalled tubs. Fully mechanical, the system uses no vacuum, pneumatics or spinning knives. The shrinkbander has dual servos for product handling and sleeve feeding. Compact components create a small machine footprint; the fully enclosed, stainless-steel version of the system can also be washed down. Applies tamper-evident bands 1- to 2.3-in.-high and 2.5- to 6.75-in. dia. Works with tubs and containers for dairy spreads, ice cream, oatmeal, prepackaged delicatessen foods, cultured products, yogurt and dessert toppings.
