American Film and Machinery, a manufacturer of shrink-sleeve and label solutions, has introduced the WSN-Gen S Steam Heat Tunnel, an all-in-one tunnel that includes its own steam generator. 

The tunnel works with shrink labeling lines in manufacturing goods industries, including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, health and beauty, consumer goods and chemical products.

The WSN-Gen S is designed for simple setup where in-plant steam generation isn’t readily available. Equipped with two adjustable tier manifolds, the Gen S directs the steam heat where needed to produce a precise, high-quality finished appearance of PVC, PETG, OPS and PLA labels and neck bands. It also provides better contour than radiant heat and ensures a quality finish regardless of container size or shape, company officials say.

The tunnel utilizes a 9-inch-tall and 4-inch-wide opening to accommodate a number of shrink-sleeve products, and has a maximum temperature of 212°F. 

The WSN Gen-S is available now through AFM’s worldwide network of authorized distributors.
