The most innovative machine presented by ALTECH is a fully automated and equipped ALline paint can labelling system. Smooth and precise, this system performs a complex task:
- registering two labels to the seam of the can - by lifting the handle;
- printing and applying a swatch label.
The sweets produced by Liquid Lens proved very popular. ALTECH had three products on offer: tubes, pots, and pouches.
- The tubes were labelled on an ALline labelling machine with a roller conveyor and an integrated innovative hopper infeed unit;
- the pouches and pots were labelled on a single multi functional ALbelt machine equipped with an ALritma applicator with ICE printer.
The versatility of the ALbelt solution allows Liquid Lens to automatically treat both products - the pouches are fed onto a conveyor (by our new ALfeed friction feeder) while the pots are inducted from a rotary table and labelled with a tamper seal.
The tamper label is initially applied ‘flagged’ on the product and then adapted in ‘watchstrap’ format via simple pneumatic system. The machine is designed to run at a conservative 50-60 p/min to match the rate of other conditioning operations.
