With fewer moving parts and a smaller footprint, the Trotter W offers fast and easy changeovers and rugged reliability at an affordable price point.

The stainless steel Trotter W is ideal for pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, personal care products, household chemicals and foods that are packed in cylindrical containers, including spray cans, from 1 to 8 inches (25 to 203 mm) in height and 0.5 to 4 inches (12.7 to 101 mm) in diameter, standard, and to 5 inches (127 mm) in diameter, optional. Making it perfect for contract packers, this labeler can be changed over to handle a new container size in less than 15 minutes, with no tools required and often no change parts.

With the addition of a compatible, optional thermal transfer printer and vision inspection system, the Trotter W can easily achieve e-pedigree serialization.

NJM designed the Trotter W with high quality components, heavy duty construction, an open frame, raised bed conveyor and servo driven label dispenser for repeatable performance and low maintenance. By dedicating the system to wrap labeling of round containers, NJM maximizes the simplicity of the machine and offers a compact footprint that is only 4 feet (1.2 m) wide and 10 feet (3 m) long, with or without an optional reject system.

The standard Trotter W features a friction wheel infeed that enables speeds up to 120 cpm. With the optional starwheel infeed and motorized re-wind, the labeler achieves speeds up to 150 cpm. NJM can equip this labeler with a wrap drum wheel or wrap belt to handle the widest range of container sizes.

The new Trotter W combines the best of NJM’s popular Uni-300, the previous-generation pressure sensitive labeler for wrap-around labeling of round containers, with the state-of-the-art Trotter, a versatile labeler that accommodates a wide range of label configurations. The result is the next-generation Trotter W.

An Allen-Bradley MicroLogix 1400 programmable controller controls machine functions, and an Allen-Bradley Panel View Component C600 human-machine interface (HMI) offers advanced features and simple programming. With the HMI embedded software, NJM Packaging customers can add features to the HMI simply by plugging in a lap top with no additional software necessary. The system’s standard off-the-shelf components ease maintenance and reduce the need to inventory spare parts.

NJM offers a “total solution” approach that includes full validation support and turnkey line integration services to seamlessly combine best-in-class technologies. NJM’s world-class aftersales support includes standard and extended warranties, preventative maintenance programs and onsite installation, training and ongoing service.
