WSN Series Steam Heat Tunnels From American Film & Machinery

September 28, 2015, Brooklyn Park, MN – American Film and Machinery, a leading manufacturer of shrink sleeve and label solutions, introduces the WSN Series Steam Heat Tunnels designed for middle, full body, and full body and cap shrink applications. The WSN Series includes two machine models, the WSN-300-2M and the larger WSN-300-3M steam heat tunnel. WSN Series tunnels are a perfect addition to shrink labeling lines in manufactured goods industries including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, health and beauty, consumer goods, and chemical products.

WSN Series Steam Heat Tunnels are designed and manufactured to consistently take on the most difficult shrink labeling operations while keeping energy costs low. Equipped with multiple steam zones and tier adjustable manifolds, WSN tunnels direct the steam heat where needed to produce a precise, high quality finished appearance of PVC, PETG, OPS, and PLA labels and neck bands. Tunnel steam zones can be set independently to ensure a quality finish regardless of container shape or size.

Designed to work as an integral part of day-to-day packaging operations, the WSN Series Tunnels are constructed from rugged stainless steel and supplied with an adjustable height base support. Installation can be completed in minutes using standard tools to be up and running, saving your company money and increasing ROI. Due to its versatility, the WSN Series Heat Tunnels are also ideal for the changing needs of contract packagers.

The WSN-300-2M utilizes a 2 meter length tunnel to accommodate a number of shrink sleeve applications, while the WSN-300-3M has a slightly larger 3 meter length tunnel for higher speeds. Both machines have a maximum temperature of 212°F and feature high quality steam heating elements and adjustable manifold for uniform heat distribution. Changing containers or labels create no problems; zone and tier adjustments and controls are done from the operator side of the tunnel, making adjustments safe, quick and easy.

The WSN Series tunnels are available now through AFM’s worldwide network of authorized distributors. Sales inquiries should be directed to Joshua Nelson, AFM, 1521A Pomona Road, Corona, CA. 1-800-877-5658.
