Herma announces United Barcode System partnership

12 February 2010

Herma UK has announced the expansion of its product range as it becomes the sole UK supplier for the print & apply systems offered by United Barcode System (UBS)

Although well established in mainland Europe as well as North & South America, the UBS range of industrial quality print & apply systems has not previously been available in the UK. Announcing the deal John McAlpine Managing Director of HERMA UK commented “We are delighted with this new and exciting partnership. We have been supplying print & apply labelling systems into the market since 1991, but the addition of the United Barcode System ‘APL’ range to our portfolio of products has further enhanced our position as a major supplier of print & apply equipment”.

UBS equipment is designed to provide high efficiency labelling of case outers and pallets. Built to the highest quality standards with mechanics, pneumatics and electronics expertly integrated, this ensures it’s suitability for use in the most demanding of industrial environments.

Based around proven print engine technology including most popular Datamax, Sato and Zebra print units, all versions of the ‘APL’ range can be supplied with the users preferred print technology therefore, ensuring that integration into existing packaging lines is both quick & easy.

APL 4000 – Case Outer Labelling Systems
With a wide range of fully integrated application units the APL 4000 can be easily configured to satisfy the most demanding of print & apply applications. Top, front, side, back and around corner applications are all catered for by the wide range of both contact and non-contact application units. A robust and versatile choice of pedestals and brackets ensures that mounting the unit to existing production lines is trouble free.

APL 8000 – Pallet Labelling Systems
With one or two notable exceptions the majority of pallet labelling systems currently on the market are designed around a standard print & apply unit enclosed in a protective housing. Not so the APL 8000, it is very evident from first sight that this is a very different beast. It has not been modified or adapted but has been specifically designed to be robust enough for the job in hand.

APL-ELV 8000 – Pallet Labelling Systems
As per the other models in the APL 8000 range the ELV is built to work in the harshest of industrial environments. Tall pallets often require labels to be applied at the top as well as the bottom and the ELV (elevator) version of 8000 range makes light work of the task. Labelling positions can be pre programmed into the memory for auto recall or they can be reached as required at the touch of a button.

Existing “blue chip” users of the UBS print & apply systems include:-
Coca Cola, Colgate Palmolive, Danone, Kraft, McBride, Owens Corning, Pepsi, Sunny Delight and Sutter to name but just a few. For further information and technical specification contact HERMA UK
