But thats precisely what he got with the installation of a front-and-back, pressure-sensitive labeler from CVC Technologies (Rancho Cucamonga, CA).
We uncrated the labeler, plugged it in, and it did the labeling job beautifully, says Stanzel. Its been running one year now, 40 hours a week, and we havent had a single problem with it.
Labels applied to Alumaseals 8-oz high-density polyethylene bottles are supplied by the Miles Co. (Tucson, AZ). Labels are 60-lb paper printed flexo in four colors plus varnish.
But its the 400-C labeler, which replaced an older front-and-back labeler in Alumaseals existing packaging operation, that Stanzel wants to talk about. Its rated accuracy is plus or minus 0.02, which, says Stanzel, is due largely to its SelfSet microprocessor control system. And with a rated capacity of 160 bottles/min, it has more speed than Alumaseal can utilize. As for ordering and delivery, it was a snap, says Stenzel.
Other labeler suppliers quoted up to 10 weeks on delivery, says Stenzel. CVC said, Send us a check and well send a machine in 48 hours.
