HERMA at ACHEMA: to Premiere 132M HC, a Labeling Machine for Serialization Tasks in Packaging

Published on 2015-05-05. Author : SpecialChem

At the ACHEMA exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany (Forum, Fo_0 F5), self-adhesive technology specialist HERMA will premiere the model 132M HC – a wrap-around labelling machine that is fully equipped for serialization tasks. The serialization equipment includes, amongst others, a Videojet printer and a Laetus camera system that monitors the print quality. This is of particular interest for pharmaceutical companies and packaging specialists currently in search of a track & trace solution for pharmaceuticals, since serialization is expected to become mandatory in the European Union in late 2017 or early 2018.

The 132M HC’s controller, which can be chosen according to customer preference, is another exhibition highlight: users now have the choice between Allen-Bradley and Siemens. “With the HERMA 132M HC, we now offer another machine platform with an Allen-Bradley option”, says Martin Kühl, head of the HERMA Labelling Machines Division. “We thereby continue our company’s internationalization strategy, and accommodate especially multinational companies that opt for globally universal machine standards in their individual plants.”

The NAFTA region shows increasing demand, especially for models with an Allen-Bradley controller. The respective HERMA machines have already been very well received there. Typical applications for the 132M HC include various companies from the healthcare and cosmetics industries.

Compact and modular
The HERMA 132M HC labelling machine is suitable for applications that require high-performance wrap-around labelling. Thanks to its continuously rotating star wheel, up to 330 products per minute can be labelled. Featuring a compact, modular design based on standard components, the machines can be tailored precisely yet very economically to meet individual users’ needs. Economic efficiency is further enhanced by the systems' ease of use, ergonomic design, short setup times, and simple format changes.

Located in Filderstadt near Stuttgart (Germany), HERMA GmbH is a leading European specialist in self-adhesive technology. In the 2014 fiscal year, the HERMA group generated sales of € 282 million with 873 employees in its three divisions – Self-adhesive Materials, Labels and Labelling Machines. The export ratio was approximately 57 %.
