In this case study, we present an economic reel-to-reel label media unwind-to-rewind system with a top-mounted ALritma labelling head, to allow the placement of a label accurately on a base label.
We call this an ‘ALwind’ solution, and this particular machine was built for a leading artisan foods customer selling products in jars, to place ‘awards’ labels (usually, ‘Great Taste’) on their wide range of award-winning products!
We have also provided the same solution to apply peel-and-reveal labels, or booklet sections to labels, e.g. in the chemical industry for extended HSE information, and can potentially print both the base label stock and the label being applied for dynamic booklet creation.
The solution could also be used with inkjet or laser coding systems, or with vision inspection or barcode-checking solutions such as ALcheck.
