MULTIVAC to debut new cross labeler series next month
MULTIVAC is expanding its range of cross web labelers with the addition of the new CL 1 series, which will debut at Anuga FoodTec 2024 March 19-22 in Cologne, Germany.
The CL 1 series, suited to compact thermoforming packaging machines and individually adaptable with a modular construction, can be integrated into new machines or retrofitted to existing machines, according to a news release.
“The new models offer rapid labeling readiness and are designed for fast batch changes,” Michael Reffke, product manager for Labelling Technology at MULTIVAC Marking & Inspection, said in the release. “We use, for example, 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 alternatively, via their own control terminal, when being used on machines from other manufacturers.”
The new models can apply labels up to a width of 150 millimeters to the top and bottom of all types of packs. A winding roller with plastic link chain ensures that the coiled backing material is removed quickly, and the flanged discs for fixing the label rolls can be released and removed easily, according to the release.
The machines can be equipped with standard types of printing technology. The MULTIVAC TTO thermal transfer printer and MULTIVAC TIJ thermal inkjet printer can be integrated into the machine control and user interface.
Deflection rollers are sealed for maximum hygiene and can be removed without tools. The advance roller with its counter-pressure roller can also be cleaned easily, the new models can be wet-cleaned to an IP 65 protection level, according to the release.
MULTIVAC Marking & Inspection, previously called MR Etikettiertechnik, was founded in 1972 and has been part of MULTIVAC since 1993.
