LABELPACK®, Packaging of baked sweets

Flow-pack packaging machines offer the most high performance solutions for packaging sweet baked goods (for example brioches, rolls, snack cakes, cookies, and breadsticks), creating a very protective package while maintaining the visibility of the product inside thanks to the use of special neutral or printed plastic films.

Some sweet products are packaged loose in plastic bags with the classic vertical packaging machines, which are capable of creating pillow bags or square-bottom bags.

The use of neutral or partially printed plastic film makes it possible to manage the packaging of small production lots by customizing the package during the packaging phase through the application of a self-adhesive label which displays all of the product information.

The LABELX® labelling machines can be perfectly integrated into flow-pack packaging lines with a high or low bobbin, for label application that keeps up with the constant flow, electronically synchronised with the movement speed of the packaging film and on vertical packaging machines with application systems that can be integrated in the film unwinding area or in the forming tube area.

Two different LABELX® labelling machines are available: 140mm wide and 250 mm wide. The advanced management electronics guarantee precision of the application at any speed. All of the operating parameters can be managed from a simple and functional touchscreen operating panel.

Thanks to the integration of a printing and thermal transfer unit, LABELX® labelling machines can transform into high performance print & application systems that are capable of solving online-print issues with variable data like: product name, ingredients, bar code, and other customised information. The print data is managed by the BarTender® advanced label creation and printing software.

The LABELX® JR is suitable for low and medium productivity applications and, like all of the labelling machines produced by LABELPACK®, can be equipped with printing and thermal transfer modules for the printing of variable data and bar codes.

It can be configured to all application systems available on the market and with numerous accessories that allow for easy integration on the various kinds of packaging machines.

LABELX® labelling machines are the heart of the MODULAR and COMPACT labelling systems. These systems are specifically designed for automatic labelling downstream of the packaging machine for primary packaging in which integration on the packaging machine itself is not possible.

The system has a modular structure with a stainless steel tubular frame that houses the labelling units and the conveyor belt which transports the products and other accessories necessary for the proper application of labels on the package.

The direct and indirect collaboration with numerous manufacturers of flow-pack and vertical packaging machines has allowed LABELPACK® to develop solutions which are always up-to-date, adapted to the ongoing technological evolutions in the sector, and able to respond to the need for flexibility and reliability requested by users.
