LINEAR HIGH-SPEED LABELLING SYSTEM MERCURY
The ‘Mercury’ labelling system has been designed for production lines that have a high throughput speed requirement and the need for zero downtime production. This 4 or 2 station system can apply front and back labels to any shape of plastic bottle/container at speeds up to 250 ppm.
- Quick and easy changeover between different products is provided by the use of retractable labelling heads that swing out easily when splicing, replenishing or changing label reels, thus minimising line downtime. Further enhanced by colour-coded change parts.
- Heavy-duty linear modular construction reducing maintenance and changeover costs. Also vital in relation to ease of repairs and servicing. Easily integrated into existing production lines.
- Enhanced control system incorporating single touchscreen user interface provides a very high level of user diagnostics. The unique software enables quick set-up times between product changeover and self-monitoring to provide optimum reliability and operational efficiency.
- Innovative wipe down module ensures labels are efficiently smoothed to exactly and accurately match the contours of even the most challenging containers and bottles. Optional product handling pucks are available for correctly presenting the most complex shapes.
- Fully-integrated inspection / vision systems provide detection for label verification and presence, accuracy of position and alignment, barcode reading, evaluation and verification.
