A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11858163B2) discloses a method and apparatus for making shrink labels for covering receptacles using a strip of flexible tubular material. The method involves puncturing the shrink label or strip to form a puncture spaced apart from the ends of the label, cutting the strip at an open region to separate the label, and then moving the label away from the rest of the strip before puncturing. Additionally, the method includes providing perforation lines in the shrink label, such as a peripheral or longitudinal perforation line, in addition to the puncture.

Furthermore, the patent describes an apparatus for implementing the method, which includes a puncturing means, an opening device for separating the strip, a cutting means for cutting the label from the strip, and a perforation means for forming additional perforation lines. The apparatus is designed to efficiently produce shrink labels with punctures and perforation lines to enhance the functionality and aesthetics of the labels. Overall, the patent aims to improve the manufacturing process of shrink labels by introducing innovative techniques for creating punctures and perforation lines on the labels, ultimately enhancing their usability and visual appeal in covering receptacles.
