Increasing Production Capacity With
Print and Apply Labelling Automation
We at Codetronix love a good cup of coffee, and have many a discussion in the office about it. Some are OK with instant, others like the pod machines,and a few are partial to ground coffee in a cafetiere. However you like it, I think we can agree that coffee is an important part of many people’s day.
Codetronix were contacted by a local coffee manufacturer who needed help to increase their production facility to meet the increase in demand, without using too much space.
Labelling of the outer packaging had been done by hand since the business began. With a significant increase in orders, the production line needed some efficiencies making.
Increase Your Production Capacity With Print and Apply Labelling Automation
Our Sales Manager recommended a Macsa ID print and apply labeller with associated powered and gravity conveyors to increase production throughput and handling.
With this solution in place, the operator would build the boxes and packs jars they do currently, manually.
As the boxes leave the packing area, they will be transported on the Labelling Conveyor where they will be guided past the Automated Labelling Machine. This can label either the side of the boxes, or the front & side, depending on the requirements.
All labels will be printed on demand by the Automated Labelling Machine. After labelling, the boxes move onto the flexible gravity roller conveyor from where they can be collected and subsequently palletised.
The Benefits of Print and Apply Labelling Automation
- Print and apply labelling automation removes the need to have them pre-printed. This represents a time and cost saving.
- By using an automated labelling machine, the need to apply labels manually is removed from their production process, increasing accuracy and efficiency.
By taking the time to assess the specific needs of the customer, our recommendations will lead to a doubling in production speed through automation.
