The award-winning Markem-Imaje 2000 print and apply label applicator and CIJ 9000 series have been accepted as the preferred choice for Australian beverage manufacturers.
The Markem-Imaje 2000 print and apply label applicator provides a print and apply solution that runs with minimal human interaction and training, while delivering a high standard of performance under various environmental conditions.
The beverage manufacturing industry has key criteria when acquiring new technology that includes simplicity of operation, robustness and reliability to ensure maximum uptime. These attributes are a cornerstone in the designing of various Markem-Imaje identification technology solutions, especially in the case of the Markem-Imaje 2000 pallet/print and apply label applicator and the CIJ 9000 series.
The Markem-Imaje 2000 pallet/print and apply label applicator combines technologies with a user friendly interface to optimise usability. This approach to styling has won two world-wide design awards for Markem-Imaje’s modular design and simple operation, as well as the 9000 range of inkjet printers identifiable by their friendly interface and no-error cartridge system.
The Markem-Imaje 2000 print and apply label applicator features the consumables service life that is synchronised to minimise interruption to the customer’s workflow.
The Markem-Imaje 2000 print and apply label applicator is flexible and the rest of the production line can be designed without being limited by the positioning of labels onto the packaging.
The Markem-Imaje’s 2000 series is versatile with tamp, wipe and blow applicators, with the ability to place labels onto the front, side, or on two adjacent sides of a case or a pallet. Keeping in mind the fragile products handled in some bottling plants, particularly those that produce wines and beers, the applicators work with precision and handle the fragile packaging.
The compact design of the Markem-Imaje 2000 print and apply label applicator makes it easy to fit into tight spaces and the systems operate as either stand-alone applications or as a part of a network.
With a print speed of up to 300mm per second, the Markem-Imaje 2000 print and apply label applicator offers a complete print and apply solution suitable for demanding bulk handling conditions. With its sleek and stylish design, the Markem-Imaje 2000 print and apply label applicator can adapt to the use of RFID labels for faster handling and traceability.
Along with reliability, low maintenance and maximum uptime, the total cost of ownership are key issues in the beverage sector that determines the overall value and success of labelling and coding solutions. This is a change in buying criteria as the FMCG industry as a whole has realised that they need to consider the total cost of ownership as opposed to the initial upfront cost.
With today’s rapidly developing software and increasing demands on manufacturers, the purchased product must be able to evolve. The Markem-Imaje 2000 print and apply label applicator has met the demands of the industry by focusing on usability, reliability and sustainability in the product range.
