Do you encounter one of these two scenarios in your end‐of‐line production?
- 1. Common in packaging production environments, the small nozzles in large‐character inkjet printers get blocked by corrugated dust, glue, and airborne contaminants. As a result, line operators may spend as long as 10 minutes in purging and cleaning the inkjet printer.
- 2. The filters that keep plant air clean and dry for pneumatic labeler vacuum get clogged over a period of time. This calls for a manual cleaning/readjustment procedure to correct inconsistent air flow, to avoid the risk of parts failure or inconsistent tamp pressure that could damage your product, drop labels before being applied and also, contribute to significant wear and tear of the tamping mechanism.
Both the situations cited above are bound to cost you by way of manual labor and downtime. However, preventive maintenance measures can help lower the rate of manual intervention and parts replacement to a great extent, resulting in smooth, hassle‐free and efficient running of the
- ‐ Evaluate LCIJ options with a printhead auto‐cleaning system. A better option would be an autocleaning feature that can be set to customer‐defined intervals so that regular cleaning cycles can be achieved without the need for manual intervention throughout use
- ‐ All‐electric case labelers eliminate downtime related to routine adjustments of key air supported tools and machinery crucial to efficiency and precision, limiting routine adjustments and the possibility of actuator failure due to inconsistent air
- ‐ Labelers that utilize servo motors to enable gentle contact between the labeler and the product when applying labels, minimising wear and tear and, reducing downtime in readjustments, thus enhancing savings
