211 HC: Feeding demand for personalized medical care
- The wrap-around labeler 211 HC reliably processes even the smallest batches and products that tend to tip over
- Ideal machine for small vials, syringes and cartridges, where the semi-automatic machine can score with its economy in frequent format changes
- Labels are applied by rotating these products horizontally between two motorized rollers and the pivot peel plate with application roller
- The semi-automatic labeling machine combines the high flexibility of manual product feeding with a complete equipment according to pharma specifications, including a printer for variable data and codes, and a camera for print and code verification
- Optionally available with the innovative bad label return for the reliable removal of bad labels
- The new 211 HC is therefore tailor-made for processing healthcare products
The 211 HC processes small batches efficiently and reliably
The ability of fully automatic labeling machines to offer cost effectiveness and process reliability is soon compromised if it comes to small batch sizes and products that tend to tip over, such as small vials, syringes and cartridges. For these types of products, the semi-automatic wrap-around labeler 211 HC combines the high flexibility of manual product feeding with a complete equipment according to pharma specifications. Thanks to a printer for variable data and codes, and a camera for print and code verification this machine is ideally suited for healthcare products.
And this is how it works
The 211 HC rotates the cylindrical and dimensionally stable products horizontally between two motorized rollers and the pivot peel plate with application roller. The label is dispensed onto the rotating product and applied in the correct position by the application roller. For both, height and spiral alignment, the tolerance is no more than plus or minus one millimeter. Once the label has been applied, the pivot peel plate returns to its home position and the labeled product is removed from the labeling station by hand. In case of an error signal of the checking system, the machine stops and issues a message. The defective label can then be removed manually at the peel plate. A variety of thermal transfer and laser printers can be used to print variable information, such as a use-by date or batch number, before the labels are dispensed. All conventional camera systems can be integrated into the machine for verifying correct printing and codes. If products with a variety of dimensions are to be labeled, the available format parts enable a quick changeover of the machine.
