Print and apply labelling specialist Industrial Labelling Systems (ILS) Ltd - the exclusive UK distributor of Swedish company Autolabel AB - and Yorkshire Packaging Systems Ltd (YPS) - an industry leader of British designed and manufactured reliable range of Palletiser systems - will combine on a joint stand (8B12) at the upcoming IMHX 2016.
ILS will introduce on the show stand for the first time in the UK the new FlexWipe pallet labelling system the most advanced, smartest & safest pallet labelling system available.
All current pallet labellers are large, slow, complex and cumbersome with many inherent safety risks and trap points, but the Autolabel/ILS FlexWipe system - centred on a proven Autolabel T63 printer - negates the need of any expensive guarding, and is capable of labelling more than five pallets per minute on two adjacent sides.
The FlexWipe applicator is based upon two rotating movements, an inner arm which can rotate 360° and an outer arm that can rotate 200°, this movement provides full control of where the applicator arm needs to be and the capability to know when the pad reaches the pallet.
Any risk of any possible injuries between the applicator arm/printer and pallet are eliminated thanks to the unique tactile applicator arm and the pivotal machine mount arrangement, if the system detects something is in the way it will immediately stop the arm whilst activating an alarm which then allows the arm to gently rotate away.
YPS is a market leader with an extensive range of shrink wrapping machines designed and manufactured in the UK to suit any shrink wrapping application. With almost 40 years’ experience, YPS is able to offer a range of L sealers and high-speed side sealers for display packaging applications, and also a range of sleeve sealers for transit packaging applications.
In addition, YPS is able to offer bespoke turnkey system solutions, including the YPS-built palletiser, conveyor systems, pick-and-place systems, and robots.
YPS will present on the show stand the best-selling “Compact” palletiser, a heavy-duty but compact single pallet system that is ideal where space is at a premium and which is also very economical in comparison to other models. The Compact palletiser is designed to be highly durable and YPS says it will provide a full return on costs within 12 to 24 months.
Complete with easy operator controls and touch-screen set up, simply enter the dimensions of the product, and the palletiser will automatically calculate the best stacking pattern. It will also allow any pattern to be programmed. The footprint of the machine has been kept to an absolute minimum as the whole machine is only marginally larger than the pallet itself.
