A built-in hoist eliminates manual placement of cutter during changeover, thereby reducing downtime. Change-overs can be done by a single operator using a tool supplied by the company; they take about 30 minutes. Built-in clamps with presets allow accurate label placement. The labeler handles containers ranging from 2 oz to 3 L, and labels up to 161/2" W. Touch-screen control technology allows storage of an unlimited amount of programs.
CMS Gilbreth (Philadelphia, PA) has developed a new labeler with quick-change features suited for the food and beverage industries. The QuickChange(TM) 6700 labeler is an electronically timed, roll-fed labeler that reaches speeds of up to 1겨 containers/min.
