System developed by ALTECH to apply labels to plastic tubs for a company specialised in the production of fresh food products.
The system performs C-wrap labelling which wraps a label around the top and bottom of the tub, a choice used in packaging fresh salads where the label also functions as a seal. Also equipped with a lower head, this allows two labels to be applied, one to the top and one to the bottom.
System performance reaches 70 products per minute.
- Dual-section ALbelt equipped with synchronised belts to hold the product sides during the labelling phase.
- ALritma labelling head, which places the label in front of the product and then applies it.
- Finally, use of “flag” function (available on the ALritma control panel) which allows the label to be dispensed in two stages in order to optimise the pre-dispensing of the front part of the label by taking advantage of the space between products.
