The Ravenwood Nobac 5000 range of linerless applicators suits a variety of applications, dependent on product and specification. The latest machine to join the range is the Nobac 5000 Auto. The Nobac 5000 Auto is a customer optional addition that automates switching between products, pack and label size. Subsequently, this optional extra, greatly reduces downtime. Under general operation, the applicators are manually configured to suit a wide variety of different but common label applications including full wrap, C and D wrap and top/bottom applications. Ready meal customers can also benefit from reduced packaging costs by opting for ready meal linerless sleeves instead of manually applied cardboard boxes. Ravenwood will also rise to any packaging challenge and will work with a customer for producing custom or bespoke linerless labels.

“Customers are immediately impressed when they see the Nobac in operation,” said Matt Busenbark, Labelling Equipment Manager at UltraSource.

Busenbark added, “Customers quickly recognize the potential for enhancing the appearance of their products with linerless labels without adding labor. They also appreciate the efficient and reliable Nobac machine design.”

Placement position of label reels is easy to set up and adjust with application speeds up to 150 ppm achievable. Furthermore, linerless labels generate less waste as they feature no backing paper. Subsequently, this labelling technology is highly sustainable when compared to self-adhesive. In addition to sleeving fixed-weight products, the Nobac 5000 applicators can link to weigh-scales from a range of manufacturers for variable-weight products, as well as check weighing.

Chris Isom, UltraSource CEO, said, “The Nobac line sets itself apart with its ability to apply labels in a variety of formats and positions while being very intuitive to configure and run. It also pairs well with the Espera weigh-price labellers we offer. We are proud and excited to be working with Ravenwood for distributing the Nobac linerless label applicators.”
