The incorporation of the very latest in control technology enables ‘Sirius’ to handle a wide variety of product and label shapes making it the most versatile, user-friendly, efficient and highly accurate labelling system. Packed with the latest technology for even greater production line benefits, ‘Sirius’ has been designed to meet the most stringent GMP requirements as well as addressing MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) and MTTR (Mean Time To Repair) needs.

Enhanced features

  • Motion control system provides increased labelling accuracy coupled with absolute speed matching to cope with variable speed demands of today’s packaging lines.
  • Enhanced control system incorporating single touch screen user interface provides a very high level of user diagnostics.
  • The unique software enables quick set-up times between product changeover and is self-monitoring to provide optimum reliability.
  • This reduces the skill level required for operation and maintenance.
  • Increased cabinet space allows for greater flexibility for future upgrades.
  • Fully-integrated inspection systems to identify label and/or overprint presence. Barcode readability is available and easily incorporated. Also available is the integration of a vision system capable of identifying label position on the product plus the correct lot/expiration data.
  • Modularised transmission system utilising the latest technology ensures that the Sirius provides the optimum level of flexibility and reliability for all current and future labelling requirements.
  • These next generation of ‘Harland Sirius’ features are also incorporated in the Tamper Evident (TE), Twin Side Belt (TSB), Top/Bottom and Vertical roller Stabiliser (VRS) labellers.
