Non-Stop Labelling System For The Food Sector

On the back of its extensive experi- ence in the labelling and coding sec- tor, ALTECH offers industrial labelling machines for all sectors featuring rapid,
efficient application.

ALTECH’s ALbelt range of labelling systems are particularly functional and customisable, allowing labels to be applied to a large num- ber of products depending on customers’ spe- cific requirements. They include completely automatic open linear labelling systems at extremely competitive prices.
The ALbelt “Heary duty” system features a special configuration for the food sector, combining robust mechanical components with sophisticated, easy-to-use software.

The system applies top labels to two different types of products (packages of sliced bread and hamburgers, even of different formats) simultaneously thanks to a single-belt conveyor split into two lanes.
Two ALritma M labelling heads (for labels up to 200 mm in width) are installed for each section, managed by a non-stop control system which allows continuous labelling of products. When the control system detects the end of the label reel on the first labelling head, it disables it and activates the next one, allowing reloading to be performed without having to stop the labelling process.

The same logic is also used on the other section, as the two non-stop systems are in- dependent. Everything is managed via a 9″ mobile touchscreen panel, which offers an excellent compromise between size and legibility.
ALTECH profil ALTECH engineers, manufactures and dis- tributes systems for labelling and material identification, by means of selfadhesive label. Its range encompasses the following products: the self-adhesive ALstep (low-cost) and ALritma (hi-tech) labelling heads, the ALline in-line labelling sys- tems suitable for front/back and wrap-around labelling of jars, cans and bottles, the ALcode real time printing/application units for la- belling boxes, pallets and bundles; besides the trading of SATO bar- codes printers sold in

Thermal label printers family with their soft- ware and ribbons.
Latest development is the ad- vanced range ALpharma for the la- belling of pharmaceutical products. ALTECH machines are used in every industry field, from food to cosmetics, from pharmaceutics to chemistry. Today, the company distributes its systems all over the Italian territory through a network of direct sales, while the commercial distribution for Europe and overseas takes place in more than 50 countries through a network of 80 qualified resellers and 3 subsidiary companies in the United Kingdom, the United States and South America.
