Offering reliable, accurate wraparound labeling of up to 30 cartridges per minute, unit largely automates a conventionally manual process.
TurboFil Packaging Machines LLC, an equipment specialist dedicated solely to the design and development of liquid filling and assembly machines, has introduced a wraparound labeler that automates the often complex, labor-intensive process of dual syringe cartridge labeling. The company’s In-line Dual Syringe Labeler reliably, repeatably and accurately affixes labels around one or both cartridges in two-syringe systems.
For added versatility, TurboFil’s new machine offers both a semi-wrap mode, which wraps around one of the two cartridges, or full-wrap mode, which encircles both. The In-line Dual Syringe Labeler is designed to handle 50ml 1:1 pre-filled plastic dual-chamber syringes, such as those used in dental impression materials, restoratives and adhesives. With a maximum labeling speed of 25 meters/min, the unit can process up to 30 dual cartridges per minute.
The In-line Dual Syringe Labeler largely automates the traditionally cumbersome manual process of wraparound labeling in dual-chamber syringe settings. A single operator places syringes nose-up on the eight-foot labeling conveyor, where cartridge sensors identify them. Syringes then proceed toward the module’s servo-controlled HERMA US label applicator, where they are supported from the top with a belt. Labels are tamped on, then wrapped around one or both syringe barrels before continuing along the conveyor to a collection bin.
Given its alternating semi- and full-wrap capabilities, TurboFil’s In-line Dual Syringe Labeler can handle an especially broad range of labeling parameters. It can apply labels from 12-160mm wide, and from 12-400mm in length. Its feeder handles label rolls 300mm in diameter. An optional thermal-transfer printer also is available.
“Among other applications, dual syringes are increasingly utilized for dental products such as impression materials, restoratives, whiteners and adhesives,” said Deborah Smook, VP of Marketing & Business Development for TurboFil Packaging Machines LLC. “Solutions that streamline their production are increasingly sought-after by pharma companies looking to maximize capacity without sacrificing quality. The In-line Dual Syringe Labeler reduces the manpower required for an historically labor-intensive process down to a lone operator, allowing manufacturers to reallocate personnel to other priorities.”
