HERMA Announces New Labeller Design Concept

With its clean design concept, HERMA is taking its proven modular principle to a new level. Users benefit in numerous ways from this latest design uplift. HERMA is showcasing the first machine to appear in the new clean design: the wrap-around labeller 152C.

A succession of further machines are to be given the clean design treatment in due course. The digital order processing associated with this development substantially shortens throughput times and gives rise to faster availability on the customer’s side.

Clean design marks a significant departure from the machine concept that is now being phased out, both visually and from a functional perspective. Thanks to sealed drill holes, a minimum of gaps and slots, as well as cladding with rounded corners, the hygiene-driven design of the updated machines offers a high degree of protection against contamination and facilitates cleaning and maintenance.

But clean design is more than that. The machine frame uses members from large-scale production that are shortened to the required lengths and thus conserve resources. Machining is therefore minimised, which makes a telling contribution to sustainable manufacturing. Functional modules, such as the conveyor, labelling station and signal column, are attached exclusively to frame members.

Another consequence of the clean design principle for HERMA machines is a uniform distance between the table frame and conveyor. ‘For our customers this further enhances and accelerates machine availability because, thanks to their overarching compatibility, the functional modules are universal and can be pre-assembled from stock. When service requests arise, these modules can also be exchanged or retrofitted more quickly. The machines are therefore highly future-proof and sustainable,’ said HERMA Labelling Machines Development Chief Erik Bächle.

A further implication of the clean design concept in many instances is a lower centre of gravity. This change makes the HERMA labelling machines even more stable and robust – ideal for the rigours of everyday operation. In addition, the clean design machines can be picked up by lift trucks more easily and securely. ‘For HERMA, the development of a clean design principle represented a logical next step. It expresses our undertaking to customers as regards dependability, performance and innovation through a clear design vocabulary and well-conceived construction.’

A newly developed online configurator will allow even complex labelling machines to be configured on screen, including a visual presentation of individual functions, in real time while talking to the customer. This tool not only enhances clarity, but its interface to digitalised order processing also allows customer requirements to be fulfilled in the shortest possible time. HERMA is showcasing the wrap-around labeller 152C at the Fachpack exhibition.
