Increase Your Workflow

LX-150 is an in-line single-head mandrel style labeling system engineered to meet the demand of your workflow. The LX-150 can be rolled up to any conveyor to provide accurate shrink sleeve placement up to 300 products per minute. The machine’s sturdy Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) design and construction provides for 24 hour operation, while its’ standard dual unwind system allows continued operation with only a brief splicing stop. Product runs are programmed with the user-friendly touch-screen control panel HMI, featuring standard and custom menus that can be password protected for an added layer of security.

Guaranteed Precision. Quick Changeover.

Size change overs are simple and quick. The cut length can be changed electronically by utilizing the control panels’ touch screen interface. For different product diameters, a new timing screw and bullet (mandrel) can be installed in minutes, while different product heights are accommodated by raising or lowering the machine with a turn-screw mechanism. The LX-150 comes with our quick change system for switching mandrels with a turn of a knob. Along with the mandrel, the cutter assembly has only two levers to turn, keeping your downtime to a minimum.
