Thanks to its countless automatic labelling solutions, LABELPACK is the ideal answer to problems such as product identification and customization. The systems developed by the company are capable of applying one or more labels onto the package as well as managing the inline printing of variable data and barcodes.
One of the most requested solutions is the system for the application of labels onto different sides of a thermoformed package containing cakes, ice cream, desserts and other confectionery products. These packages usually require a top and bottom application with the possibility to customize the variable data showing ingredients, production dates and expiry dates, and barcodes.
Another highly requested solution is the system for the application of a single label on three sides of a food container: top side, bottom side and front face. This type of application also works as seal of guarantee.
The above-mentioned solutions can be realised using the MODULAR and COMPACT labelling systems. The highest technological solution is achieved with the MODULAR system, an “open frame” modular structure made in stainless steel featuring several automatic labelling systems of the LABELX series for top and bottom application of trays containing food products. This system is equipped with a centralized electronic control board with PLC and Touch Screen operator panel.
Moreover, the speed functioning can be electronically synchronized and the fast regulations with numerical indicators facilitate the format change and the following repositioning to the original position.
The MODULAR systems can integrate different conveying modules built upon size, weight and shape of the container to be labelled.
The conveying systems are placed on the balcony structure making them easy to clean and avoiding spillage onto remote parts of the machine that can be difficult to reach and clean.
LABELX labelling units operate with a maximum label width of 140- 250mm and use thermal transfer printers made by DATAMAX, ZEBRA, SATO, AVERY, CAB, CARL VALENTIN for the inline printing of variable data, barcodes and other relevant information about the food product.
COMPACT labelling systems are the “entry level” series including 8 standard models and several customised solutions.
They are equipped with LABELX JR labellers, which operate with a maximum label length of 350mm and a maximum label height of 140/250mm.
COMPACT TS, COMPACT TB and COMPACT BS are the labelling systems for top, bottom and sides applications onto trays, cases, boxes, flow-packs and bags.
These conveying systems are available in different models (flat belt, plastic chains, stainless steel chains) and can be customised both in length and width according to the dimensions of the product and the requirements of the packaging production line.
All COMPACT labelling systems can be equipped with one or more ther mal transfer printing units of variable data, barcodes and other relevant information.
To complete the labelling system a wide range of accessories and options are available: sensors for transparent labels, product spacers and stabilisers, rotary tables for inline loading and accumulation. LABELX and LABELX JR automatic labelling systems complete LABELPACK offer for the confectionery sector.
They are easy to install into any existing packaging line and use the print&apply unit of PandA series, suitable for the end-of-line identification.
