UK company Advanced Labelling Systems (ALS) has launched the new ALX 3138 print and apply system at PPMA 2002, which is being held at the Birmingham NEC this week.
Designed to offer performance and flexibility, the labelling system features an enhanced two-line display with full error messaging, velocity compensation using encoders for accurate label placement when product speed changes and multiple product memory banks for saving set-up parameters, in order to facilitate quick and simple set-up and changeovers. Furthermore, its stainless-steel and anodised aluminium construction are corrosion-resistant, offering users durability and maintenance-free operation, said the company.
ALS will be demonstrating the benefits of the ALX 3138 and its other labelling solutions at the show. The display will reveal the three different stages of the labelling process.
The first stage is primary: labelling the packaging that contains the product. On the fully-networked stand, visitors will be able to see the high-speed ALX 720, the new ALX 3138, the compact ALS 350 and ALS 600 mainline labelling machine applying labels directly onto real customer packs.
The secondary stage involves labelling the outer packing that contains the customer packs. This will be demonstrated by the robust ALX 2038 modular print and apply system fully integrated with an Endoline case sealing machine applying front of pack labels to cartons.
The final stage, or tertiary stage, will be demonstrated by the new ALX 3138; proving its versatility by labelling two sides of a pallet.
The stand will also feature the CHESS range of 64-bit, high-speed thermal transfer printers, designed for fast high-quality label printing in a wide range of applications, as well as the ALS Series Tube Labeller applying labels to flexible tubes.
Furthermore, ALS will be promoting the suitability of its products for a wide range of print engines including Zebra, Novexx, SATO and the EAN 128 barcode standard.
ALS will be at stand 9456, hall 9. For further information email@example.com
