Labelling Solutions For Food Trays

On the back of its extensive ex- perience in the labelling and coding sector, ALTECH offers industrial labelling machines for all sectors featuring rapid and effici nt ap- plication at highly competitive costs. To meet the coding and labelling require- ments of the food sector, ALTECH has produced a line of labelling machines purposely designed for flat products (food trays mainly) used to preserve an extensive variety of foodstuff. This line is called ALbelt, successfully traded in Italy and abroad by the company. It is a compact and completely automatic lin- ear system equipped with one or more labelling heads of the series ALstep or ALritma, depending on the best con- fig ration required by the application. The most classic config rations can be found in the systems for top labelling, top and bottom labelling, angle and U- labelling, typical of the seals of the trays commonly used to preserve fresh products such as pasta, meat, salad, and more. For bottom labelling, the system is provided with a two-section conveyor with a label dispenser blade installed between the two sections, or a high-adhesion side belts system to lay the lower part of the product for la- belling.

Highly flxible and with expandable and totally customisable components, ALbelt can also be config red as to meet any labelling requirement. As well as applying one or more labels on vari- ous parts of the product, ALbelt can be used for more complex applications, such as applying overlapping labels (to propose a discount or special offer) or making a non-stop system for continuous labelling.

This picture shows a config ration made up of three ALritma labelling heads for the application of two labels on the upper side and one on the lower side of vegetables trays. Due to the un- even surface of the products, the two
upper ALritma heads are equipped with an air-jet applicator for no contact application to moving trays. The lower and the fi st upper heads are also fit ed with a printer module for printing vari- able data.
Rounding off the system is a down- stream adapter by rotary brushes, which ensures optimum adhesion of the label to the product surface.The ALstep/ALritma labelling heads can also be equipped with thermal transfer printers to apply variable data, such as best before dates, barcodes, and other useful information.
