BL A420 CW
The machine is an automatic labeller with integrated checkweighter, designed to apply one vignette label on the upper panel and two self-adhesive Tamper Evident seals on the closure points of formed cartons. The machine is designed to allow the installation of ink-jet or laser printers and corresponding cameras, to print and verify 2D codes and relevant characters on the lateral flaps and on the upper panel.
At the infeed, the cartons are gathered in an accumulation belt, after which a patented system indexes the cartons on a toothed conveyor belt. The system ensures positive motion and avoids carton slipping by holding it still to guarantee correct label application. The label dispensers are controlled by servo or stepping motors whose speed is automatically synchronised with that of the other motors in order to optimise the production process. Once the cartons are under the labelling heads, which have very fine vertical and horizontal adjustment mechanisms, they are labelled with a vignette on the upper panel and with two Tamper Evident seals on the closing points. The 2D Data Matrix code is printed on the upper panel and on the side flaps to identify every single carton as well as the human readable data. These codes are then verified by a OCR/OCV camera. The missing overprint and missing seals control system reject wrong cartons.
All of the main tracking devices, such as ink-jet and laser printers plus relevant cameras, can be installed on the machine to print and verify on the monitor the serialized codes and related human readable characters on the side flaps of the carton and on the upper panel. Such an impressive level of versatility makes the BL A420 CW a complete solution for all serialization needs, either as a stand-alone unit or as a part of a line, capable of adapting to every national regulation enforced in on this topic
