Accraply, a Barry-Wehmiller Packaging Systems company, designs, manufactures, and supports automated label application systems as, well as converting and finishing equipment for the shrink sleeve label and flexible packaging markets.
The company used its virtual space at PACK EXPO Connects to demonstrate the next generation roll-fed technology that's being added to its Trine Product line. The recently debuted, modular labeling station is now available for both existing and new customers.
The Trine Modular Labeling Station, which includes the latest in glue roller and cutter technologies, was designed to integrate seamlessly with existing Trine equipment. By leveraging existing product handling systems and Trine change parts, this system can be installed in as few as 3 days, which helps to avoid unnecessary downtime and line reconfiguration.
This system comes with the SmartLink HMI, which features a next generation controls platform with efficiency reporting, preventative maintenance alerts, self-diagnosing software, video tutorials and online parts ordering. These features dramatically simplify operation.
Additionally, this system was designed to reduce maintenance costs. This is a self-timing, servo-driven system with fewer moving components and fewer parts to replace. This reduces the need for operator adjustments. The updated cutter blades are easy to install and tune and are rated for more than two million cuts. The glue roller and glue scraper systems included in the Trine Modular Labeling Station are safe, easy to clean and provide simple setup, reducing the time and effort spent on maintenance.
