Offering an appealing presentation and protection for sold goods, the trend towards clamshell packaging for snacks, salads, desserts or pastry continues.
At this year’s Anuga FoodTec show in Cologne, HERMA (hall 7.1, stand E049) will present a versatile labelling machine for the food industry. The HERMA 752C has been designed to wrap a single label around the top, front face and bottom of a pack in one pass, thereby sealing the container, with the capability of labelling up to 30 products per minute. Moreover, the integrated high-performance HERMA 400 label applicator enables the precise application of very long labels for products with a maximum length of 300 mm. The machine’s compact and very stable design as well as various assembly options (e.g. left- and right-hand version, for upright, horizontal, or suspended operation) ensure its versatility for use in almost any production environment.
Easy adaptationThe machine is also efficient in other respects: it can easily be adapted to other product sizes in a matter of minutes with just a few work steps. Both the width of the guide rails and side belts and the position of the label applicator can be easily adjusted. The length of the in-feed conveyor can be custom-tailored according to individual customer requirements, e.g. to ensure optimal use of space in existing production lines. A thermal transfer printing unit can be easily integrated in order to print variable data from an upstream check weigher. With a wide range of useful accessories, including a pack turning unit, the 752C may well be the most versatile and economic three-panel labelling system available.
