The HERMA 500 Label Applicator is an Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled machine using real-time metrics to optimise production efficiency and consistency, even in a multi-factory setting. Capable of achieving labelling speeds up to 200m/min, it can handle label widths between 80-320mm and roll diameters from 300–600mm.
The HERMA 500 is a next-generation label applicator that builds upon its predecessor, the HERMA 400’s, best features and integrates Industry 4.0 connectivity. The HERMA 500 also is exceptionally fast with a maximum speed of 21.3m (70 feet) per minute higher than the H400. A maximum speed of 198m (650 feet) per minute can be reached. The module offers short make-ready time and offers industrial-grade Ethernet connection.
Remote access via web browsers provides allows for off-site operation. A variety of optional upgrades can be accessed by simple code activation, and the unit’s firmware is automatically upgraded via ethernet. Both left and right-hand models are available for seamless equipment integration.
‘The fully connectivity-enabled HERMA 500 keeps pace with digitised factories as industry moves toward more comprehensive 4.0 integration,’ said Peter Goff, CEO of HERMA US Inc. ‘Such innovative technology allows manufacturers to track performance and enhance synergy on product lines, all while ensuring optimised speed, connectivity and safety.’
