LABELING MACHINES

PPS and Herma supply numerous labeling solutions, ranging from simple manual label dispensers to high-tech customized labeling machines.

Common to all solutions is that we deliver labeling machines with powerful functions, high labeling accuracy and significant savings in production. All labeling systems can also be delivered to comply with pharma standards.

Labeling heads

All the standard models as well as the special labeling equipment from Herma are based on the same two labeling heads:

Herma 400 (H400) is the famous versatile labeling head with premium flexibility, quality and accuracy.

Herma Basic holds many of the same skills as the H400. For more straight forward jobs it allows a more economical beneficial solution.

Wrap-around labeling

For cylindrical products, such as vials and bottles, wrap-around labeling is the ideal solution. The label can be wrapped either partially or completely around the product. The Herma wrap-around labeling machine can operate synchronized with a star wheel or unsynchronized with an application belt.

  • Labeling speed up to 200 units per minute.
  • Short setup times and simple format changes.
  • Customized labeling solutions and labeling machines for serialization tasks available.

Side labeling

Side labeling is commonly used and often for applying variable data, such as ingredients or expiration date, and for creating a strong buying incentive through visual appearance. For achieving precise label positioning in smaller productions a semi-automatic solution is recommended and for medium and large production quantities full automatic systems are ideal.

  • Labeling speed up to 100 units per minute.
  • Side labeling for most formats, such as flat items, rectangular boxes or oval bottles.
  • The labeling system can easily be integrated with printing, inspection and rejection systems.

Top and bottom labeling

Top and bottom labeling is the most commonly used type of labeling. Herma and PPS offer solutions for either bottom or top labeling, or a combined fully automatic system for simultaneous application of top and bottom labels.

  • Labeling speed up to 250 units per minute.
  • Products are guided by either motorized side belts or special guide rails.
  • Labeling system can be integrated into existing production lines.

L- and C-shape labeling

It is increasingly important to securely seal a broad range of products as well as prevent from tampering. For this, L- and C-shape labeling is ideal, as the label in general need to be applied over one or more edges. Additionally, the labels can contain an amount of variable information, such as ingredients or expiration date.

  • The labeling system can easily be integrated with printing, inspection and rejection systems.
  • Labeling solutions specifically designed for the pharmaceutical and food industries.
  • Compliance with the strictest requirements for tamper evident labeling.

Tamper-evident labeling

From February 2019, all pharmaceutical packaging of prescription medicines in the EU must include a tamper-evident closure as a security feature together with the serialization. This is stipulated by the EU Directive 2011/62/EU adopted in 2011. In order to continue to use the existing folding boxes, the use of sealing labels is of particular interest in terms of cost-effectiveness. These labels firmly connect the insertable tags to the body of the package. The most practical labels from an economic and technical point of view are completely conventional rectangular or round labels. These labels may even include a security perforation. The essential factor for their use is the pressure-sensitive adhesive. It must be highly resistant to water, hot air and various solvents. This is the only way to guarantee that the label cannot be peeled off even heavily coated folding boxes without visibly destroying either the label or the box. The same type of sealing label can therefore be used for a variety of packaging materials and for a variety of surfaces – even hot melt-sealed boxes can be protected against tampering using this method.

Tamper-evident labels help secure the authenticity of products, as they most often cover more than one edge and can be printed with identification numbers and other essential information. Seal-labels – or L-, C- or U-labels – are ideal solutions for tamper-evident labeling, as the mentioned types of labels covers more than one edge. The labeling unit can be designed for one or two side labeling according to the customers need. Moreover, the label is also designed to be highly resistant to water, hot air and various solvents. These features ensure that the product has not been attempted to open or tampered with.

Tamper-evident sealing is most often used in the pharmaceutical and food industries, but we offer solutions for all industries. Herma labeling systems for tamper-evident labeling is based on the technology of proven standard modules, but can be specially designed according to individual requirements. Tamper evident labeling equipment from Herma can also be equipped with printers and cameras in order to print, verify, and collect data for serialization of pharmaceutical products.

  • Labeling speed up to 300 units per minute.
  • In combination with printer and camera, it works as a complete serialization unit for pharma production.
  • Different solutions are offered according to customers’ needs.

Tabletop labeling equipment

For smaller productions, a table top labeling unit will be sufficient.

For these applications Herma offers a variety of solutions; from a simple unit that peels of the label from the backing paper and manual places it onto the product, to a system where the operator places a round object, e.g. a bottle, on rollers for automatic and exact labeling.

Robotic solutions for labeling

Standard labeling equipment might not be enough to solve a tricky labeling job. By combining a Herma labeling head and a small robot, a more flexible and/or specialized solution can be offered.

PPS designs and builds such turnkey solutions and we can supply complete lines, offering both the labeling part, but also – if needed – a packaging line for packing the labeled products into cartons, shipper boxes and onto pallets.
