Somerset cider-maker Magners has automated pallet labelling operations at its Shepton Mallet factory with two print & apply machines from Logopak, installed in minimum time due to standard Logopak software.
The Logopak 815PF units replace a manual labelling operation, reducing labour costs and ensuring accurate positioning for adjacent side labelling. They also scan each bar code label as it is applied, automatically reprinting and re-applying should there be a failure to read correctly. Both machines receive label data from an existing factory management system via Logopak’s new Synchro-LXS software. This holds and manages labelling data files on a PC for real-time data flow to the labeller, independent of the host computer from which the data is initially downloaded. As a result, the labellers are able to continue operating at maximum capacity when the host computer is engaged on other tasks apart from labelling.
