There was a time when consumers didn’t pay much attention to slightly misprinted or misaligned labels. That time has long passed. Today, any problem with the package is seen as a defect in the product itself. Manufacturers spend a lot of effort – and potentially waste a lot of product – making sure that only perfectly labeled packages reach market. Any improvement to the labeling process that reduces that effort – and the potential for waste – directly affects the bottom line.

Keeping the Production Line Moving

Labeling machines require precise positioning and torque, often at very high speeds. As products come down the line by the hundreds every minute, labels need to be applied accurately and with the right pressure to avoid smearing, peeling, tearing or product damage. Depending on the label material and adhesive, even a tiny variation in velocity or timing can cause errors that waste material and bring production to a halt.

Improving the Production Process

Better motion can do more than increase productivity and minimize scrap. Today’s most advanced labeling machines use direct drive servo motors and multi-axis controls to eliminate mechanical linkages, reducing floor space and maintenance requirements. Machines can also be designed in a modular fashion to accommodate a wide range of product requirements. And they can incorporate safety functions and intelligent features such as smart indexing, pushbutton changeover and more.
