25 January 2013
The prototype Logopak 515ETG labeller has been developed for a major UK dairy, which is seeking to reduce energy costs at one of its sites by eliminating use of compressed air. The machine uses stepper motor drives an
The machine uses stepper motor drives and timing belts in place of pneumatic cylinders, and a specially designed vacuum box in place of the compressed air operated unit.
Based on a standard Logopak 515 labeller, which has a 600mm horizontal and 450mm vertical movement, the electrically-driven machine is to be installed later this year and will be used to apply labels to the top surface of various packs.
The print & apply labeller will be on display at Interpack (12 to 18 May, Dusseldorf), together with other developments from Logopak, such as tag-on-demand RFID labelling and laser printing for labels up to A3 size.
