Norwalk, CT. The Personal Care Division of a market-leading consumer products company has chosen PDC International to supply a multipacking and shrink labeling system for products in their fastest growing sector.

Packed for club stores, the twin packs offer value and high product visibility, with the shrink sleeve label used to group the products together. PDC’s R-300 Multipacker features special product handling which pairs the products in dual counter rotating timing screws, then hands them off to servo controlled gripper belts. This allows precise product handling and optimal presentation of the packages for the sleeving process.

The PDC system complies with the customer’s TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) Program, thanks to features and benefits that include visual indicators, ease of operation, and the ability to make quick, repeatable changeovers without adjustments.

PDC multipackers accommodate rigid packages, bottles, cans and special shapes.  These multipacking systems are used most often with identical packages, but adapt well to programs involving packages that are different in type and size.

PDC multipackers are manufactured in semi-automated and fully-automated configurations. Sleeves for multipackers can be printed with graphics, eliminating the need to orient the product within the pack.
