Pouch Labeler for Cannabis Products
Depending on the length and quality of the pouches, it will achieve speeds up to 100 pouches per minute, which is sufficient to feed two Simplex or one Duplex premade pouch baggers. It is a highly efficient pressure-sensitive labeler for pouches destined to be filled with various products, including cannabis flowers, cannabis gummies, candies, or other edible products.
This offline labeling system features a dual lane powered magazine for empty pouches, a servo-driven pick-and-place device, a Herma servo-driven label applicator, and Allen Bradley PLC and HMI controls. Quick changeovers are possible by recalling an HMI recipe and performing only a few mechanical adjustments on the machine. Our Pouch labeling system comes equipped with interlock safety guards for heightened operator security and is CSA certified (UL and ESA recognized) at our factory before shipping. This Pouch labeler is ideal as a stand-alone labeling system but can also be integrated to your existing packaging line.
This user-friendly pouch labeler can accommodate several sizes of pouches ranging between 3.6’ to 12” wide with a maximum length of 14”. Suction cups grip the pouches from the magazine and release them onto a continuous-motion cleated conveyor, which aligns the pouches for labeling. The pouches are fed at a rate of two per cycle, and photocells detect any pouch jams to stop the machine automatically. The dual-lane magazine can be easily replenished while running, thus avoiding any downtime.
Should your process involve blank or partially blank labels, it is possible to integrate any brand of Thermal Transfer Overprinters (TTO) on the label applicators to print variable information and barcodes. It is also possible to integrate an ink jet (CIJ) or thermal ink jet coder to print directly on the pouches on this machine. Vision systems to inspect the printed information and validate label presence are another integration possible. Other optional features include rejection of faulty pouches, accumulation conveyor, and a second label applicator to simultaneously apply top and bottom labels.
Depending on your production floor layout, the labeled pouches can be accumulated in a bin, an accumulation table, or transferred to the infeed conveyor of a Fill & Seal Machine.
