AL80 is a machine for the horizontal packaging of products using plastic film configured to product size and is a leading-edge Microline product. The machine can be equipped with a labelling unit that is fully designed and assembled in-house. The device uses a mechatronic system for stepwise insertion of the label, thus allowing operators to work with the label correctly positioned on the product. To avoid product damage and save material, the system does not use glue to keep the label in place. Accuracy of label centring is guaranteed by perfect synchronisation between movements and an electronic control system that ensures the label is correctly positioned on the product. Energy-saving is another advantage, achieved by an electronic cam drive system that optimises resources for the benefit of the environment.
The packaging world has been abuzz with news of Industry 4.0 for years, and particularly technologies for line automation and remote assistance. Few companies can boast Microline’s experience in this field. This Emilia-Romagna-based company has always put its customers first and foremost, seeking the best ways to ensure prompt and ongoing support.
Numerous factors have contributed to the market success of the AL80. This roll packaging unit is an ideal blend of strength and performance. Its packaging material requirements have been cut by using very fine film and a packaging process without any waste trimmings.
