July 28, 2006

July 2006 – Norwalk, Connecticut – PDC International Corporation announces the introduction of the R-Series Cup and Tub Shrink Labeling System, built to apply shrink sleeve labels to tapered or conical containers such as dairy, deli or beverage cups. Shrinksleeve labeling provides super high quality and gloss graphics which are not typically obtained by offset printing. Speed ranges are up to 300 cups per minute.

The R-Series Cup and Tub Labeler can handle a range of round, oval and square tubs, while maintaining side-to-side graphic orientation. Cups are fed upside down into the sleeve applicator’s special product handling section that eliminates product backlog or shingling. The system can also label bottles and other packages in addition to the special functions related to cup and tub labeling.

Optional container static reduction systems, hold down belts and blow off dryers are also available. The R-Series of Shrink labelers is the culmination of PDC’s 30 years of experience in both the US and European markets, at a price point that equates to exceptional value and premier quality.
