The enhancements come on the heels of another recent improvement, one that the company says made the Herma 132M the fastest wrap-around labeler of its type on the market. Capable of handling up to 400 products per minute, the turret-based machine features a rotating star wheel for precise product transport. It can be outfitted with a wide range of printing and vision systems, and features automatic rejection of out-of-specification labels before they are applied.
The Herma 132M’s modular design ensures versatility, allowing the machine to be customized economically and cost-effectively to exacting individual needs. Users can easily adapt the module to various product formats in a few easy steps.
Chief among the enhancements is the newfound ability to smoothly accelerate and decelerate, lending to improved product handling and protection, particularly for glass containers and those containing sensitive solutions.
“The latest improvements add an extra element of product assurance to a machine that, at 400 products per minute, is considerably quicker than any comparable labeler,” says Peter Goff, CEO of Herma US. “In addition, as many pharma companies, CMOs and CPOs continue to experience heightened volume demand, narrowing our delivery timeframe to 12 weeks will be very welcome news.”
