ITW Auto-Sleeve, an Illinois Tool Works CompanyElite Stretch Sleeve labeler is ideal for the new gallon and half-gallon dairy bottles. With quick-change tooling, machine changeover can be accomplished in 30 minutes or less. The labeler is CE compliant and features speeds of up to 99 bottles per minute. Coming standard with infeed and outfeed conveyors, the machine can be installed with little disruption to the customer's line.

The machine accepts up to a 21" roll of stretch sleeve labels, allowing the machine to operate for longer time periods between roll changes. The labels are applied in a straightforward manner, with no glue or heat required.

Stretch Sleeve Labels are manufactured from polyethylene resin, the most recycled plastic in the world. The fact that no heat or glue is required when applying labels provides the operator a fume-free, energy-saving, clean, fast mechanical application. The labels boast innovations such as full bleed flexographic printing, inside label printing, mirror-finish metallic coatings, scratch-off inks and ink jet printing for promotional merchandising.

The pre-made labels are simply stretched over the containers, and held in place by the natural elastic properties of the polyethylene. The plastic, glue-free labels are unaffected by moisture and condensation, and, unlike BOPP, they are completely recyclable.
