Why Does Labeling Speed Matter for My Business?

Actually, labeling speed and accuracy is essential because if you don't match your labeling process to your production, well, things can get messy and expensive.

I've created a quick overview chart of the various types of labeling systems used today. They range from slapping a label on by hand to fully automated, high-speed monsters that can handle different sized packages. This is just a quick look, but for labeling beginners, it might help them set up their production correctly the first time. Check it out and read more below.

Which Label Printer-Applicator Works Best for Your Packaging?

Posted by Margaret O'Leary

Oct 10, 2014 11:00:00 AM

A label printer-applicator is an automatic labeling system that has the ability to print variable information onto a pressure-sensitive label, then apply it to a container. Sometimes companies want to use a label that has the same pre-printed information such as a logo, company info, or background color, then add different information to the label depending on the product that it is being applied to. You will find these systems applying shipping labels, product information labels, nutrition labels, barcode labels and more.

3 Ways to Maximize Craft Beer Labeling Productivity

Posted by Margaret O'Leary

May 1, 2014 8:51:47 AM

If you've chosen pressure-sensitive labels for your beer bottles then you already know these will be easy to apply. Just remove the liner and stick the label to the bottle, right? Easy enough, but what about when you have hundreds or even thousands of bottles to label? And you want them on straight?

If you want to increase your pack line productivity and ensure accurate labeling you should invest in some form of labeling automation.

Here is a list of three different automatic labeling systems perfect for the beer industry.

 

1. Bottle-Matic

If you're working on small batch bottling you probably only need a semi-automatic table top labeler. The table-top Bottle-matic is affordable and compact. Our Labeling Systems Product manager, Mike Soloway, put together a video demo to show you how easy this system is for craft beer labeling. With some practice, you can label up to 20-30 bottles a minute. And the labels are applied flat and straight every time.


 

 2. Geset 121 

The next step up for microbrewers is the Geset 121 label applicator.  This system is ideal for labeling bottles and other round, straight-walled containers. This system would be a great addition to a pack line where you connect directly to the conveyor from the filling line. If you aren't totally automated yet but still need to apply lots of labels quickly, you can hand-load this labeler by sending the bottle in one end and having your helper grab it as it exits the other side. A small, movable labeling system that can label up to 25-30 bottles per minute.


 

3. Tronics Series 3

The largest bottle labeling system we offer is the Tronics Series 3. This wrap system can wrap a single label or more complex labeling like front, back and neck. This system is a great fit for operations that are 100% automated and have a very high volume out put. The Tronics can handle up to 2400 inches of labels per minute and the built-in conveyor easily integrates into your packaging operation.

Pack Expo 2013: Innovations in Labels and Packaging

Posted by Margaret O'Leary

Oct 7, 2013 8:45:00 AM

Wow! What an amazing Pack Expo show. With general show attendance up about 7% this year, our booth was buzzing with start ups, big businesses and future packaging engineers.

At this show we debuted our new larger booth layout, a couple of new products, and a very large assortment of labels manufactured by Weber.

 

Here were the highlights:

 

Decorative Custom Labels

Our booth featured two large label racks and lots of shelves that showed label rolls from dozens of industries.

We loved having the opportunity to share the print technology of our HP Indigo digital label presses, showing off a variety of label materials and the outstanding creativity of our Graphics department.

A popular topic that came up often in our booth was customers asking about updating their packaging with new label designs or materials. The major label trend in our booth was clear label material on clear packaging. Whether it was for wine, juice or sandwich packaging, people liked the high-end look of a clear label on their glass or plastic containers.

 

QuadraColor Inkjet Label Printer

As it has been at our last couple of shows, the QuadraColor inkjet label printer was a big hit!

Many visitors to our booth were looking for in-house label printing options or an alternative to the label printer they currently use. They were impressed with the high-resolution quality of the labels and how easy it is to operate the QuadraColor.

We found that food companies who have multiple SKUs want the flexibility to print the labels for their flavor varieties on-demand.

Visitors were also impressed that the QuadraColor label printer holds up to 250 different label designs in its memory, making it easy to pull up label designs on-demand.
