The Benefits of Sleeve Bundling
Sleeve bundling is a great way to unitize individual products into 2, 3 or 4 pack units. These packs can then be loaded into shipping cases as they are when single. The minimal film used will not affect the existing case size. The clear film sleeve will not cover product label information or graphics.
Using a sleever and shrink tunnel is an easy integration into an existing production line. Far easier than a traditional bundler. This also can handle small diameter containers that are problematic for other types of over wrapping equipment. Containers can be delivered in predetermined group counts using a simple timing screw while still traveling on existing conveyors. There is no cross pushing or transferring required. The sleever drops a sleeve over the group and it is then shrunk without stopping the product, to create a secure multipack.
This provides a benefit for distribution to smaller outlets that may need less than a case count. Rather than handling individual products, a 3-pack would be a single unit and easier to handle.
