Tripack MSA-180 Shrink Sleeve Applicator

The Tripack MSA-180 shrink sleeve applicator is a durable vertical shrink sleeve applicator, capable of running full-body shrink-sleeve labels and tamper evident banding. With its high-speed knife and film feed system, the MSA-180 can keep up with all of your medium-speed sleeving needs. The MSA-180 is customizable, capable of running a wide range of shapes and sizes—up to 200 products per minute. Its plug-and-play design takes up minimal floor space and can be integrated into production lines quickly and easily.

The film-delivery system uses a mandrel and servo motors to provide consistent quality and performance, with simple, repeatable changeovers.
