Large Labels For Large Packages

Bonn, Germany (PressExposure) September 17, 2009 -- Bizerba the technology specialist situated in Swabian Balingen is extending its range of labelling and marking systems for use in the logistics sector. A fully automated labelling system is available with the new version of the GLM-L which can now affix labels produced by thermal and thermal transfer print up to DIN A5 size. The GLM-L labeller can be used combined or fitted to a conveyor system for example connected to a fully automated machine from the GLM range or in combination with a scales and conveyor unit in a higher load area and simplifies procedures in the mail order business.

There is a choice of three labelling systems either as a continuous flow system or by start/stop operation for affixing self-adhesive labels. In the process the label size can vary from 30 x 30 up to 210 x 150. The upside and the side of the package can be printed without contact and treating the product with care by applying a jet of compressed air. A rotary applicator also makes frontal labelling possible and is particularly suitable for the handling of difficult surfaces, the stamp applicator provides especially good adhesive strength and is suitable for the rotated positioning of labels.

Bizerba also places great value on simple configuration and user guidance with the GLM-L. "The configuration and input of all print data takes place conveniently via the separate GT-12C colour-display/control terminal or else online," says Dieter Conzelmann, Director of Industry Solutions at Bizerba. In combination with a network or by using it as a totals printer on a GLM-I fully automated machine several devices can be operated via a central GT-12C control terminal, says Conzelmann. The label position in the running direction may be set as precisely as required. The label is applied to the package surface in a time-controlled way by means of a signalling device. The printing of labels and the start of the labelling machine can be triggered by static inputs.

Transponders integrated into so-called smart labels can also be specified and verified in real time as well as with an optional RFID device during the printing of labels with the GLM-L labeller. The use of RFID labels which spare the intervisibility between the reading device and the label in processing and are also identifiable in a messy condition, produce significant competitive advantages for the user in production, storage and distribution logistics including existing IT infrastructures.

In conclusion the maintenance of devices also especially saves time and cost thanks to Bizerba e-Services. "If an error should occur, our employees can carry out an error analysis via the internet and quickly provide advice and support," says Conzelmann. "e-Service reduces the use of service on site and in cases of problems makes shorter downtimes possible due to quick diagnosis. This pays off for the user in Euros and cents."
