NON-STOP LABELLING AND INDUSTRY 4.0 – A MIX OF PERFORMANCE AND TECHNOLOGY FROM ALTECH

The ALTECH labelling systems of the ALbelt series provide an excellent price/performance ratio, without any compromise concerning reliability and robustness. The ALbelt systems come in numerous configurations based on specific labelling needs and can label different types of products, such as bottles, cans, jars, tubs, boxes, and trays.

The ALbelt systems are fitted with ALstep or ALritma labelling heads and can be equipped with printers to customise labels with variable data, as well as with product spacers, wrapping units for cylindrical products, adapters and bending units for corner labels.

If necessary, the ALbelt systems can take on specific configurations to meet particular needs, such astop and bottom labelling or non-stop configurations.  ALTECH has recently supplied a system featuring both capabilities to an important producer of cold cuts in Italy. The system is fitted with two ALritma labelling heads, which are positioned in such a way as to apply a label on the bottom of trays. The operational logic allows it to detect the end of labels on the first head and automatically activate the second one, thus making it possible to change labels without stopping the labelling process. A third labelling head on the top is set up to apply a “hook” label to hang the tray on a display rack.

All functions and parameters are managed via a PLC system featuring a 7-inch colour touchscreen panel that can store and manage up to 100 labelling formats. The system can be interfaced via Ethernet, which enables remote access to monitor its health and status, e.g. for remote assistance. Moreover, the OPC-UA protocol makes the machine compliant with Industry 4.0 requirements. 

ALTECH Srl is a leading Italian company specialised in the production of material coding, identification, and labelling systems.
