Full Wrap Labelling Solution for Bakery Products in Hinged Trays
MULTIVAC’s full wrap labelling is redefining the labelling of bakery products in hinged trays. The L 310 conveyor belt labeller provides an efficient and sustainable solution for C labelling and D labelling, and it enables the hinged tray to be securely sealed on one or both sides.
With its versatile and high-output L 310 conveyor belt labeller, MULTIVAC has developed a solution that significantly reduces material usage – up to 70 percent. This also means less weight throughout the entire logistics chain, as well as contributing to a better CO2 balance.
This robust model with its patented, servo-driven press-on brushes makes automated C labelling and D labelling of packs possible at speeds of up to 120 packs per minute, and it can take a label width of up to 500 millimeters.
In addition to being able to apply just a simple top label, the L 310 can apply a label in a C shape over three sides of the pack or in a D shape over all four sides, and it is also possible to overlap the label on the underside of the pack. Both C labelling and D labelling offer the benefit, that the pack is sealed closed at the same time. An additional perforation feature can be used as an opening aid.
The packs are automatically labelled on the run and are either fed in manually or transferred automatically from an upstream module. The L 310 can also be equipped with an integrated printer, as well as a zero downtime function and label/print monitoring for maximum output and process reliability at even the highest throughput.
A further plus point as regards efficiency is the rapid change of label rolls and batches, which soon pays dividends, particularly if there is a wide variety of products. All the setting parameters for the labeller and the print layout for the integrated printer are stored in the particular recipe, and these are called up automatically when a batch is changed.
The MULTIVAC labeller is suitable for a wide variety of different pack shapes – from rectangular to round or oval packs, including special shapes such as those for cake slices. The only requirement is that the tray must be sufficiently rigid in its shape and offer adequate contact surface for the label.
