The labeller uses environmentally friendly labels with no wasteful non-recyclable, non-biodegradable siliconised liner material. As well as C-wrapping regular shaped packs it is capable of labelling irregular packs such as whole birds.
It has been designed to have control of both ends of the label in the feed system, improving positional accuracy of the label around the package.
The feed system is independent of label length and conveyor speed, hence allowing longer labels to be run without loss of throughput, a great improvement over other solutions. With ever increasing label information, and hence length, this can help productivity.
The low level label reel mounting system is designed to reduce the height to which label reels must be lifted by operators. Long C-wrap labels are surprisingly heavy. The absence of a liner has the advantage of making reel changes quicker and easier, with no need to thread a take up reel.
The unique label construction allows for easily legible black reverse print, not the shaded grey used by standard labels.
The linerless labels can be made from slightly thicker than normal material, minimising wrinkling on application. A range of other materials can be used, including film.
Thermal transfer overprinters from a range of manufacturers can be optionally fitted. These print at the point of application, minimising wasteful printed labels on changeovers.
The labellers can be interfaced with a weighing machine to print variable data if required.
The Le Mac Australia Group | Labelling Innovators
The Le Mac Australia Group was established in 1984 and in the beginning focused on providing tamper evident packaging. The company is now positioned to offer a wide range of packaging solutions covering tamper evidence, container decoration, multi packing, contract promotional packing and flexible stand pouches.
In 1997 the company embarked on a major expansion program with the acquisition of a manufacturing site at Mulgrave in Sydney's northwest. Le Mac was also divisionalised into four sections: Contract Promotional Packaging, Contract Container Decoration, Printing and Conversion and Machinery Systems Sales Support.The new facility manufactures shrink labels & seals, stretch labels, roll fed labels, linerless self-adhesive labels, tray sleeves and flexible pouches and bags. Le Mac also offers contract packing and container decoration services. A key element in our philosophy is a total systems approach, consisting of both automatic application equipment and the printed consumables.
The Le Mac team is proud of what we have achieved since commencing local manufacture. From a technical viewpoint we have obtained excellent results in printing a wide range of flexible materials, with a focus on high quality 11 colour work. The team at Le Mac combines many years of experience in the industry and we work closely with our customers in search of innovative solutions to new packaging challenges.
We look forward to helping you in the future.
