Learn about ALTech’s AC02 label applicator system and how it also fits into your production line.
The ALTech S with AC02 Applicator labeler is a fill, seal machine to apply labels onto bags. In this case, the label is also used as a re-sealable closure for the bag. The label head is mounted on a slide for easy servicing.
The first ALTECH LABELLING MACHINE started production in September 1991. It was the result of the commitment of a small group of people whose joint intention was to produce innovative LABELLING MACHINES. Advanced Labelling Technologies, ALTECH was the result. Nowadays millions of self-adhesive labels are applied by ALTECH systems every day.
The package uses a special pressure sensitive, closure label to help re-close the bag once it has been opened. The application is made directly to the film behind the former tube of vertical form fill and seal machines in order to grant a reliable, consistent labeling result.
ALTech’s AC02 In Your Line
The label is blown onto the film so it can be applied while the film is moving. The labeling heads are electronically connected to the VFFS machines for receiving the start signal for labeling and for integrating the low roll sensor alarm to stop the machine in case of a low roll or broken web. Both heads are equipped with FR15 sliding units which allow them to be extracted from packaging machine to enable easy change label rolls.
