Labelling machines being more modular
publié le mercredi 30 septembre 2020
More and more customers are asking for modular systems and solutions, and KHS group is systematically restructuring its engineering portfolio, also as regards labeling technology.
Its move here is the addition of the modular Innoket Neo Flex machine to its tried-and-tested Innoket Neo series. In the past there was a separate machine for each different labeling technique. This was optimized for its specific area of application but reached its limits when customers wanted to expand their portfolio, for example by adding self-adhesive labeling in combination with the classic cold glue method. With the Innoket Neo KHS has developed a machine that can be configured at will thanks to its modular design. Depending on the machine size and respective requirements the Flex series can be equipped with two to four modules. These are exchanged with just a few manual adjustments performed without tools. The machine labels both plastic and glass containers and cans in all of the standard sizes and its output totals up to 74,000 containers per hour. Another advantage of the new modular machine is its extreme ease of operation. With its patented folding door technology the machine carousel and individual stations are readily accessible at all times. Moreover, no additional cladding is required for the area beneath the machine table. In addition, operators profit from bearings lubricated for life that make the labeler extremely low maintenance and reduce the amount of lubricant needed. The new, ergonomic HMI provides great ease of operation. This can be moved by the operator to the required position very simply.
