(businesspress24) - Logistics: labeling hazardous goods in the central warehouse

In the city of Landsberg, the German drugstore chain ROSSMANN operates cab Hermes+ print and apply systems along the conveyor lines. Equipped with stroke applicators, they automatically apply limited quantity labels onto picking boxes as specified in regulations. The quality rate is 99 percent. Instead of labeling the boxes while they are in motion, the consisting conveyor system was rebuilt so that the boxes stop at the labeling stations with the help of a blocking flap. The labels are pressed by tamp pads onto the boxes. After that, a box accelerates on the conveyor belt.

Signaling: label printing to ensure product typification

Supposed you enter the production facility or warehouse of a mechanical engineer or a company in the automation sector, there is a good chance that signal towers or beacons optically indicate the current operating states of machines or production lines. Or there are horns, sirens or buzzers acoustically pointing to errors or overloads. WERMA plans and manufactures more than 3,500 types of these products at its headquarters in Rietheim-Weilheim. As regards the production and assembly of the signaling devices, the printing of typeplate and packaging labels has always been a key factor. Since 2012, this is done with cab printers A+, EOS and MACH4.

All data collected during quality assurance must be assessed and provided for later documentation.

In the fully automatic production lines the control units and laser sources of cab FL marking lasers are mounted in 19

Food packaging: labeling fruit and vegetables in the flying change

Tomatoes, peppers, lemons, zucchini, packed in nets or portioned in plastic trays and sealed in foil are classic displays in retail and wholesale. Pakstation in Venlo ensures that the organic products are packed. Fruit and vegetables from the companyems including Hermes+ printers. The latter have been expanded with label transfer modules and application-specifically integrated in the packing lines. Two print and apply systems are assembled in each packing line: one in classical manner, the other upside down. By this, goods in motion can be labeled both from top and below.
