Priority One claims its Langguth 200 series of cold glue labelers uses fewer parts and more automation, which cuts changeover time to up to five minutes without the use of tools.
In a bid to boost productivity and reduce costs food packagers are constantly searching for ways to increase labeling speeds, while reducing changeover times.
The five models within the Langguth range, which can handle between 60 and 400 containers per minute, require between two and five minutes for a changeover.
Competiting products can take up to 20 minutes to make changeovers, the company claims. Rival products use about €7,500 of changeover parts, while the Langguth requires less than €1,500, Priority One claims.
The higher speed models feature a stationary label magazine that can be refilled while the labeler is operating at full speed and do not require a dedicated operator. Once refilled, the operations can be left, until refilling is required.
The machines can handle both cylindrical and slightly conical containers of between one and 1.5 inches in diameter.
Wrap-around, path and shaped labels made of paper or plastic can be applied. The standard labelers can attach labels from between two and 9.5 inches high and from between three and 21 inches wide. Other options are available.
The labelers can include optional ink jet coders, label inspection with eject device, double scroll for unstable containers and zero clearance transfers.
Langguth labelers are German engineered with North American electronics.
