New WSN-Gen S Steam Heat Tunnel a great addition for shrink labeling lines.

BROOKLYN PARK, MN—American Film and Machinery (AFM), a leading manufacturer of shrinksleeve and label solutions, introduces the WSN-Gen S Steam Heat Tunnel.

The WSN-Gen S is an all-in-one tunnel that includes its own steam generator, and is a perfect addition to shrink labeling lines in manufacturing goods industries, such as food and beverage, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, health and beauty, consumer goods, and chemical products.

The WSN-GEN S tunnel is designed for simple setup where in-plant steam generation isn’t readily available.

Equipped with two adjustable tier manifolds, the GEN S directs the steam heat where needed to produce a precise, high-quality finished appearance of PVC (Polyvinyl chloride), PETG (Polyethylene terephthalate glycol-modified), OPS (Oriented Polystyrene), and PLA (Polylactic acid) labels and neck bands.

The GEN S provides better contour than radiant heat and ensures a quality finish regardless of container size or shape.

The GEN S tunnel utilizes a 9-inch tall and 4-inch wide opening to accommodate a number of shrink sleeve products. The tunnel has a maximum temperature of 212°F and features high quality steam heating elements and an adjustable manifold for uniform heat distribution.

Changing containers or labels isn’t an issue—tier adjustments and controls are done from the operator side of the tunnel, making adjustments safe, quick and easy.

Steam heat is typically the best source for shrink labeling due to the fact that the steam fully encompasses the product at once and provides a uniform, consistent shrink around the product. It is especially effective for irregular shaped products.

The WSN Gen-S is available now through AFM’s worldwide network of authorized distributors.
