Linear High-Speed Labelling System
The ‘Mercury’ is the latest development in the Harland Linear Series of labelling systems. The system has been designed for production lines that have a high throughput speed requirement and the need for zero downtime production.
This 4 or 2 station system can apply front and back labels to any shape of plastic bottle/container at speeds up to 250ppm and fits nicely in the Harland family of labellers, between the well proven ‘Sirius’ system and ultra high speed ‘Titan’.
Quick and easy changeover between different products is provided by the use of retractable labelling heads that swing out easily when splicing, replenishing or changing label reels; thus minimising line downtime. Further enhanced by colour-coded changeparts.
Heavy-duty linear modular construction reducing maintenance and changeover costs. Also vital in relation to ease of repairs and servicing. Easily integrated into existing production lines.
Enhanced control system incorporating single touch-screen user interface provides a very high level of user diagnostics. The unique software enables quick set-up times between product changeover and is self-monitoring to provide optimum reliability and operational efficiency.
Innovative wipedown module ensures labels are efficiently smoothed to exactly and accurately match the contours of even the most challenging containers and bottles. Optional product handling pucks are available for correctly presenting the most complex of shapes.
Fully integrated inspection/vision systems provide detection for label verification and presence, accuracy of position and alignment, barcode reading, evaluation and verification.
