AFM GS Series

The GS Series Radiant Heat Tunnels for Shrink Band Labeling

The GS Series Radiant Heat Tunnels for shrink sleeve label and tamper evident band application from American Film & Machinery are designed for neck and tamper evident band shrink applications. The GS Series includes two machine models: the GS-75 and the larger GS-100 heat tunnel. GS Series tunnels are a perfect addition to shrink labeling lines in manufactured goods industries including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, health and beauty, consumer goods, and chemical products.

Ease of Operation

GS Series Tunnels are designed to be compact and easy-to-operate additions to your existing shrink band applications. The GS-75 and GS-100 utilize two temperature control regulators for accurate dual heat bank settings and precise band shrinking. Tunnel temperatures are monitored by an external settings control to ensure proper heat distribution across the tunnel chamber, ensuring a high quality finish on a variety of films including PVC, PETG, OPS, and PLA regardless of container shape.

Engineered for Versatility

Designed to work as an integral part of your day-to-day packaging operations, the GS Series Tunnels feature a modular design and can be easily mounted to an existing conveyor frame, doing away with the need for a cumbersome floor stand. Each system is design with rugged stainless steel, and the compact 23” chamber eliminates the need for lengthy conveyor space. Installation can be completed in minutes using standard tools to have you up and running, saving your company money and increasing your ROI.
