  • SPOTLIGHT ON CROSS WEB LABELLING MACHINES: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

    News: 

    A cross web labelling machine is a popular choice for those who need high-speed, high accuracy labelling on thermoformed packaging. These types of labelling machines allow businesses to precisely apply labels on either the top or the bottom of thermoformed packages. Cross web labellers can work with many different kinds of labels, depending on your requirements, so you can choose a material and format that works for you. These machines can work with the HMI of the thermoforming packaging machinery for a full-service system, or can be mounted onto any type of thermoformer. Cross web advanced labelling machines meet all the requirements of the medical sector and the food industry, making them a popular choice for these businesses.

    Types Of Cross Web Labelling Machines

    There are various types of cross web labelling machines designed to suit a wide range of requirements. Whether you need labels for marketing purposes or for vital information such as date coding, bar codes or product information, a cross web labelling machine can help. Here are some of the most popular types of cross web labelling machinery:

    • KOCH Cross Web Labeller: This advanced labelling system offers 24 labelling programmes, dispensing speeds of up to 60 meters per minute, and +/- 0.5mm label printing accuracy. The KOCH Cross Web Labeller is perfect for labelling large runs or food or pharmaceutical products and can include added options such as empty pocket detection to eliminate the labelling of empty packages.
    • Matrix Cross Web Bottom Package Labeller: Specifically designed to mount onto any thermoformer packaging machine, this labeller automatically applies labels onto the bottom of the package after sealing. Using pressure sensitive labels, this machine can conform to almost any product contours and has been designed especially for wash down environments.
    • Matrix Cross Web Film Labeller: This labelling machine can be installed onto most fill / seal / roll stock machines and is perfect for applications where there is no space available after the sealing station. The Patented Open IP65 design allows water to drain away, and the labelling machine has been constructed from corrosion resistant materials.
    • Matrix Cross Web Top Package Labeller: Similarly to the Cross Web Bottom Package Labeller, this machine is designed to mount packaging machinery. The key difference is that this labelling machine will apply pressure sensitive labels to the bottom of a package after sealing.

    Benefits Of Cross Web Labelling Machines

    Many businesses and industries choose cross web labelling machines because of the many benefits they can bring. These advanced labelling systems are:

    • Easily integrated or mounted to existing packaging machinery.
    • Very hygienic, simple to clean and have water resistant design.
    • Quick to print labels on all types of packaging, and quick-release clamps allow fast roll changes.
    • Perfectly precise with label positioning and accuracy.
    • Super robust and durable with minimal maintenance and down time.

  • TikTok Has Finally Explained What Those Coloured Circles On Food Packaging Are For

    News: 

    There’s a good chance that at least one in your life, you’ll have been eating a bag of crisps or something similar and noticed that there are a load of mysterious coloured circles on the packaging.

    Look – we grabbed a packet of Walkers crisps to double check, and there they are!

    But what are they for? Is it a secret message from another life form? Are aliens trying to make contact with us using a series of brightly coloured dots? Should we be worried? Well, according to one TikTok user, these have absolutely nothing to do with aliens, so you can relax.

    Sonya Gonzalez Mier works in food marketing, and has taken to TikTok to explain once and for all what the meaning behind the circles is, and it’s all to do with the colour of the packaging.

    She starts the video by saying, “I work in food marketing, and we have these colour patches on all our packaging.

    “No, they're not barcodes, no they're not a mysterious sign.

    “They are colour control patches, which we need because the colours that you see on the packaging are not actually the colours that we're printing. Let me explain... to choose the colours that you see on the packaging, we actually layer colours and the colour patches are the colours we are layering on top of each other to achieve the colours you see.

    “To make sure the colours are correct, we look at the colour control patches and if they're slightly off, we know that the whole packaging will be off.”

    So there you have it – another mystery solved!
