The VAL550 is a high-speed labelling system for pharmaceutical containers, including ampoules, vials, syringes, bottles and cartridges. Combining the latest electronic systems with high quality mechanical engineering, the VAL550 provides accurate and reliable high speed labelling.
Designed specifically to meet the requirements of the international pharmaceutical industry and all of the industry’s regulatory bodies, including the FDA.
Containers are fed either from trays (off-line operation) or automatically from upstream machinery (on-line operation) to the VAL550 infeed starwheel. Container flow is controlled via a simple ‘blade’ gating assembly. Containers pass to the labelling point, a sensor triggers the label feed, the leading edge of the label is driven off the backing web at a linear speed which matches the container speed. This ensures smooth, accurate placement on the container surface. The container, gripped between an applicator belt and presser pad, is controlled as the entire label is pressed firmly in place, ensuring high registration accuracy. The container, gripped between an applicator drum and presser pad, is controlled as the entire label is pressed firmly in place, ensuring high registration accuracy.
