MULTIVAC is expanding its range of cross-web labelers by adding the new CL 1 series, which will be shown to the public for the first time at Anuga FoodTec in March (Hall 8.1, Stand C10). The new models are ideally suited to compact thermoforming packaging machines that can be integrated into new machines or retrofitted to existing machines. Thanks to their modular construction, new cross-web labelers can be adapted individually to the customer's requirements new cross-web labelers.
50 years of labeling experience combined in these new cross-web labelers
The CL 1 series of cross-web labelers offers a cost-effective option for most customers' usual precise and secure labeling requirements. Therefore, they are a cost-effective alternative to the CL 2 high-output models. “Thanks to proven solutions, on which we can draw from our many years of experience in this sector, the new models offer rapid labeling readiness and are designed for fast batch changes,“ explains Michael Reffke, product manager for Labelling Technology at MULTIVAC Marking & Inspection. “We use the proven technology of the successful CL 2 models, such as the label sensor, dispensing edge, and paper brake. This ensures that the new models are also highly efficient in everyday production. They can be operated very conveniently via the HMI user interface on MULTIVAC thermoforming packaging machines - or their control terminal when used on machines from other manufacturers.”
The new cross-web labelers offer many benefits.
The new models can apply labels up to a width of 150 mm precisely and gently to the top and bottom of all types of packs. The perfectly designed and finely adjustable label guiding system requires fewer deflection rollers than other solutions. A winding roller with a plastic link chain ensures that the coiled backing material is removed quickly and easily, and the flanged discs for fixing the label rolls can be released and removed with one hand. The machines can also be equipped with all the standard types of printing technology. The MULTIVAC TTO thermal transfer printer and MULTIVAC TIJ, thermal inkjet printer, can be integrated seamlessly into the machine control and user interface to save all the label data, print images, and variable data in the product recipe.
The new cross-web labelers are designed for effortless and reliable cleaning and rapid maintenance. The deflection rollers are sealed for maximum hygiene and can be removed without tools. The advanced roller with its counter-pressure roller can also be cleaned very quickly, and access to this is gained without any tools. Like the MULTIVAC thermoforming packaging machines using the cross-web labelers, the new models can be thoroughly wet cleaned to an IP 65 protection level.
