Classic roll-fed labeling machines can slow down production due to some ordinary unforeseen circumstances: their drums get dirty with glue, causing machine downtime, and require complex maintenance. That’s why P. E. Labellers invented Simpl-Cut™. Discover its 4 features that optimize the labeling process.
Automatic roll-fed labellers are among the most widely used solutions for their efficiency in high-speed production lines and competitive cost. At the same time, they present some features that can slow down production. P. E. Labellers solved these main problems with a revolutionary labeling system.
Let’s see together Simpl-Cut™ and its main advantages:
- More than a roll-fed labeling machine: here’s Simpl-Cut™
- Innovative cutting system
- Single drum
- More technologies together
- “No stress” label unwinding
More than a roll-fed labeling machine: here’s Simpl-Cut™
Simpl-Cut™ is an innovative labeling solution with a cutting and gluing system that revolutionizes the traditional principles of roll-fed labellers and solves their most common problems.
Bottling plants and other companies need more flexible machines and with fast format changeovers: the market requires continued developments both in the shapes of the bottles and in the labels, which should have an increasingly greater impact on the eyes of consumers. Simpl-Cut™ is the correct answer to current needs.
The technology patented by P.E. offers higher quality in the labeling system, optimizing processes, reducing costs. How is it possible?
Innovative cutting system
One of the most complicated aspects of traditional roll-fed labeling machines is the replacement of blades, a process that can take a long time and the intervention of a specialized technician.
A great advantage of the Simpl-Cut™ cutting system is the ease of the blade replacement: the operation is so simple that it can be performed by any operator in about ten seconds.
Just insert the blade into the cartridge and you’re done; the Simpl-Cut™ system does not need any adjustment and can start labeling without calibration.
Simpl-Cut™ is a roll-fed labeler with something more. Actually, something less.
Unlike the classic roll-fed labeling machines, Simpl-Cut™ has a single cutting drum, which allows to obtain:
- quick format changes;
- a minimum maintenance of the cutting system, with significant time savings.
In this innovative system, the label is cut after the application of hot glue (hot-melt), rather than before. This eliminates the problem of contamination of the drum with glue.
This feature allows a constant cleaning of the cutting drum, which leads to the absence of blocks or jams of the machine.
Another innovation of this system is the use of 3, 4 or 5 divisions on the same drum, thanks to which each container can be labeled at its ideal speed.
More technologies together
The Simpl-Cut™ labeling system has been designed to combine two different technologies in one machine: roll-fed hot glue and pre-glued linerless, with the additional possibility of shrink wrapping applications.
This feature guarantees a level of flexibility that cannot be reached with a traditional roll-fed labeling machine, as well as having the maximum freedom of choice depending on production needs and the minimum occupied space in the packaging department.
“No stress” label unwinding
One inconvenient circumstance that can happen with a roll-fed labeller is the involuntary tearing of the label during reel unwinding.
In the Simpl-Cut™ system, the label roll is unwinded thanks to an air vacuum system, which tightens the labels quickly enough to sustain the high rhythm of the machine, but not so much as to tear or damage them.
This feature allows excellent label management even with thinner films, expanding the range of choice of materials and further reducing machine downtime.
Raise the bar in your production: choose roll-fed labellers that increase productivity and ensure a flawless result.
