1. Consistent Shrink Sleeve Placement – Every Time
The blessing and curse of creative packaging is unique design. Marketing gurus love packaging with complex geometries and gimmicks, but automated production of these bottles, packages, and products can be an absolute nightmare. Shrink sleeving is an ideal solution to brand oddly-shaped goods, but alignment can be a major problem for packaging with extreme designs. Products conveyed using pucks can provide manufacturers with a new means for accurate shrink sleeve placement by ensuring a fixed-product position before application. It’s a simple solution to a complex placement problem that works every time.
2. Shrink Sleeve Under The Product
Shrink sleeving multiple products together for bulk purchases is an industry standard practice, but it can get complicated when you’re attempting to ensure the sleeve material is underneath several products simultaneously. Many companies turn to custom pucks to simplify the bulk sleeving process. Pucks are a simple cost effective solution that elevates products evenly to ensure that multi-pack products are fully surrounded on the top, bottom, and sides.
3. Stabilize Odd Form Bottles During Sleeve Application
Beautiful bottle shapes are packed with shelf appeal, but they can be an absolute pain to convey, fill, and wrap reliably. Custom-molded pucks are an easy-to-implement solution to stabilize even the most unwieldy of packaging. Pucks provide a simple and stable platform for shrink sleeving, ensuring a tipsy bottle won’t jam the line, mar the label, or potentially damage expensive production equipment.
4. Consistent Product Spacing Maximizes Heat Transfer
Line spacing is vital during the shrink sleeving process for a myriad of reason. Proper product spacing ensures optimal heat transfer and can minimize label distortion or marring. A custom-molded puck for shrink sleeving is a cost effective solution which eliminates all of these potential hazards easily.
5. Standard Product Position Eliminates Changeover
Line changeover is the bane of production worldwide. Changeover is a time-consuming and costly process that affects companies large and small. Advantage Puck exists to help manufacturers minimize the headache associated with changeover, and they help companies achieve that goal with a simple, cost-effective solution; a puck. Advantage Puck provides shrink sleeve users with the means to standardize variably-sized product position to eliminate most changeover associated with shrink sleeve systems.
