The Vulcan print and apply labelling machine is the first of its kind to print and directly apply labels to secondary packaging, such as boxes, cases and shrink wrapped packs in one continuous action.
It prints at a speed to match the packaging line without ever missing a pack, regardless of line throughput, build back and pack size.
This case labeller eliminates all of the features and manual adjustments that cause downtime in day-to-day operations, only designing in the key components that make a smart, reliable case labeller.
What Makes the Vulcan Print and Apply Labelling Machine Unique?
Intelligent Motion technology precisely and automatically controls the entire system- no slipping, clutch, nip rollers or manual adjustments.
Direct apply is a unique on-demand labelling method that allows accurate label placement without the need for an applicator- even at high speeds.
Front of Pack Labelling
Ideally suited for cases or shrink wrapped products requiring the label to be applied to the front of a moving pack.
The label is applied using a robust, pneumatically controlled arm applicator which uses integrated pack detection and applicator home/extended sensor functionality to ensure accurate label placement every time.
Corner Wrap Labelling
Perfect for an applicator that requires a single label to be applied across adjacent panels of a case or shrink wrapped product, allowing the label to be seen from two directions.
The label is applied to the trailing corner of a target product using the Direct Apply printing method, unique to the Vulcan Print and Apply Labeller. The corner wrap system has a simple, secondary pneumatic roller wipe to ensure full adhesion of the label around the corner and side of the product.
Range of Printhead Sizes
The ICE Vulcan has a range of printhead sizes to suit the needs of any application, with a 2″, 4” and 6” model available. The 6” or 160mm model has recently been released to meet customer demand for a larger label print area for more detailed product information. It comes with all the great features of the much-loved 2” and 4” model including Intelligent Motion technology, solid state ribbon drive and no need for compressed air in direct apply mode.
