SSL-450 Vertical Sleeve Labeler

Compare the SSL-450 vertical sleeve labeler to a small block V8 American hot rod—speed and reliability in a smaller package. Sleeve Seal has engineered the SSL-450 series of machines to be hard running, robust machines that can stand alone with the two-reel capacity of the SSL-450S or can be mated to high capacity label accumulation systems for high volume with the SSL-450R. SSL-450S: This “stand alone” version of the 450 series has two reels mounted on the machine for extra capacity and smooth splicing between label rolls. SSL-450R: Add a giant fuel tank to a performance car and you get speed plus nearly unlimited endurance without refueling. The SSL-450R is that combination—a fast and durable machine with a huge reserve of labels that can be run all day long.

SSL-450 Vertical Sleeve Labeler Drive Train

The SSL-450 vertical sleeve labeler drive train is engineered around Allen Bradley controls plus precision machined components that are designed for accuracy and durability. Our drive train design offers repeatable performance in a mechanically simple system that uses modular change parts to make switching between formats easy. All of our mechanical systems can be adjusted by the operator with no tools, giving Sleeve Seal labelers the reputation as operator friendly, long lasting machines capable of efficiencies of 99.5%. All Sleeve Seal labelers perform precision labeling thanks to well-engineered components managed by Allen Bradley servos and controls.

Access Cabinet

All Sleeve Seal labeling machines are housed in heavy gauge stainless steel cabinets made with removable service doors for ease of maintenance and safety. Operators can manage operation and changeovers using our purpose built HMI and synchronized adjusters. Cutter BoxOur patented cutter box utilizes four to six synchronized cutting blades for fast, precise cuts that won’t leave jagged film ends. The unique modular design allows for easy change of blades or quick, tool-less changes to other cutter boxes when changing label format or container size. Sleeve Seal cutter boxes use common, affordable utility blades that can be found in a local hardware store. Other blade types designed for use in harsh environments are also available.

Sleeve Seal is focused on a new era of repeatable labeling performance. Built-to-last American manufacturing expertise and modern engineering combine to produce speeds from 25 to 1600 CPM on robust machines equipped with intelligent Allen Bradley controls. Heavy weight construction and the fastest, most durable drive train in the industry provide countless hours of high efficiency runs. Sleeve Seal machines are engineered to provide quality-labeling performance with simple, tool-less changeovers between container formats. Other patented innovations, such as a multi-blade cutter assembly with quick-change blades have been developed for ease of maintenance.


Sleeve Seal Cap Sealers offer the same rugged construction and precision application as our vertical labelers with rapid tool-less changeover of change parts. Our cap sealers and vertical shrink labelers utilize identical drive trains, allowing the user to switch safely and easily from format to format.


The line of Sleeve Seal shrink tunnels features a new style of tunable controls that make shrinking labels on containers both precise and repeatable. In order to shrink labels at higher speeds, our shrink tunnels come in a broad range of sizes that compliment all of our labelers. In addition to newly designed controls, Sleeve Seal tunnels feature 316 stainless steel interior lining and components for maximum corrosion resistance. Every shrink tunnel model features external controls that allow the adjustment of individual arrays without exposing the operator to heat.
