INNOVATIONS AT ANUGA FOOD TEC 2018

PE Labellers - INNOVATIONS AT ANUGA FOOD TEC 2018

For P.E. Labellers 2018 started with a strong focus on innovation. At the ANUGA FOOD TEC trade exhibition (Cologne, 20-23 March) Hall 8 – stand C038, it will indeed present the new range of MODULAR labelling machines for medium-low speeds designed according to new machine control platforms with highly automated management production features.

A whole series of models designed according to the concept of a ‘centralised machine’, with new electronics, more versatile and performing, and with new run-up orientation systems. Namely, the machine on display will be fitted with a system featuring orientation sensors for capsules, brands on glass surfaces and UV notches.

Moreover, the labelling machine will be fully in line with Industry 4.0 standards, the true technological revolution in terms of methods of use, maintenance and management of productivity with cutting-edge tools, connected to devices such as tablet PCs and smartphones, fitted with specific apps. In particular, the augmented reality system installed on the Modular machine uses an iPad with a dedicated app that allows the operator to frame the machine, monitor its operating status, and display any alarms, signals or maintenance to be carried out. With this device, the inside of the electrical cabinet – which in this case is built into the machine – can also be viewed to check its status without having to stop the machine and actually open the cabinet. This enabled us to reach extremely high levels in terms of ease of use and operator interaction: all within your fingertips.
