Built to Last
Every LX Series machine is designed with servo driven, PLC controlled label drive rollers, interchangeable cutter assembly, and label shooting wheels to provide accurate and consistent shrink sleeve labeling. LX-350 is constructed using 304 grade stainless steel to provide strength and reduce vibration while offering quiet operation. LX-350 has been engineered to handle oval and round containers made of plastic, glass, or metal at speeds up to 500cpm. Users also have the option of purchasing additional mandrels for non-cylindrical containers. The multiple blade rotational cutting mechanism provides extremely smooth, even cutting of film ranging from 35 microns up to 70 microns.
