Over Labelling Made Easy by Atwell’s

25 October 2011

Atwell Self-Adhesive Labellers were asked by Empire Food Brokers based in Northolt to look at improving their label printing and labelling efficiencies, as one of the UK’s most respected distributors of premium branded imported foods Atwell’s were given a brief to reduce the customers labelling costs and increase output by automating the labelling process whilst ensuring that the various label/s were applied to extremely high tolerances.

To achieve this Atwell’s supplied EFB with a fully automated in-line top & bottom self-adhesive labelling system, the overhead solution incorporated an Atwell Series 3000 print & apply label head to either apply existing pre-printed labels whilst having the ability to print the labels on blank media once the pre-printed stocks had been exhausted, reducing waste and future costs.

The base solution incorporated an Atwell AL2-120S programmable stepper driven label head for applying pre-printed labels. Both label heads were fitted on a 1.6 meter conveyor with fully adjustable side guides to suit the various products to be labelled.

Empire Food Brokers, Operations Manager Raj Patel said that the reason we choose Atwell was because of their helpful nature and excellent advise at the recent Pro2Pac show and the fact that they delivered what was asked and more, even supplying a loan machine before the customers was finished.

“The system is extremely easy to use and the support excellent, it has allowed EFB to increase production by a factor higher than that originally expected”.

As the UK’s fastest growing labelling system provider Atwell’s continue to improve and expand the services offered to its customers, for a free no obligation quote or advice do not hesitate to contact one of our sales team. Tel : +44 (0) 1444 239970
