Stanford DM12 Shrink Sleeve Inspector

Stanford DM12 Shrink Sleeve Inspector

Sorting through each of your shrink sleeve labels is impossible, especially when you’re looking for potential defects. Each label needs the same level of inspection, which can only be achieved with machinery engineered to do so.

Simplify your shrink sleeve inspection process with the Stanford DM12 Shrink Sleeve Inspection machine.

Don’t throw out bad material - Doctor it.

Stanford DM12 Machine Benefits

Accraply is proud to offer the Stanford DM12 Shrink Sleeve Inspector. This machine was engineered for optimal production efficiency and has many advanced features.

Manual Inspection Button

Return detected defects with the touch of a button. Once activated, the manual inspection button will return the defect to the splice table automatically.

Achieve Fast Production Speeds

The DM12 machine runs at a maximum web speed of up to 500 mpm (1,640 fpm).

Touch Screen Control

Easily control the DM12 with the help of an intuitive touchscreen panel. Operators can also save unlimited product recipes for easy machine changeover.

Remote Diagnostics

Reduce your machine downtime with internet-based remote diagnostics. Each shrink sleeve inspector machine comes with Wi-Fi capability.

Compact Footprint

The DM12, like many Stanford machines, is engineered to take up minimal space in your production facility. This machine features a cantilevered compact design, allowing it to fit in existing packaging lines. The DM12 machine needs only 0.6 squared metre for installation.

Detect These Issues

The DM12 currently has machine options available for:

  • Flag Detection
  • Bubble Detection
  • UV Detection
  • Splice Detection
  • Strobe Light

Use in the Converting Industry

Accraply supplies the Stanford DM12 Shrink Sleeve Inspector machines primarily to the converting industry. Like many other industries, it is vital to have efficient and effective machinery in the converting industry.

The Stanford Brand

Since 1943, Stanford converting equipment has been a trusted name in the UK and across the world. Accraply’s Stanford brand is known for its advancements in slitter rewinder machinery, along with shrink sleeve label applications. Stanford is also the creator of the Doctor Machine, a system that finds and fixes label defects.

In addition to the DM12, Stanford also produces the DM16 shrink sleeve inspection machine.

What Does a Sleeve Label Inspection Machine Do?

When creating any type of label, it’s important to make sure it represents your brand and product correctly.  A defective label will not only misrepresent your brand, but also the value of your product.

It can be difficult and time-consuming to detect defective labels without a shrink sleeve inspection machine. These machines are engineered to identify issues with the shrink sleeve label’s application. These issues can be anything from seam integrity to solvent presence.
