Compact labeler for food and beverage
Date Published：2/14/2018 07:02:02 PM
Food and beverage companies looking to use a more compact labeler can check out the Innoket Roland 40 from the KHS Group. This machine for low-output lines has a capacity of 2,500 to 25,000 containers per hour. It can be fitted with various labeling stations.
The table machine is applicable to craft breweries and manufacturers of products like canned food, sauces or dressings.
“The machine is specially geared towards lines with a low output,” said Cornelius Adolf, labeling product manager at KHS. During development particular attention was paid to simple operation and a high degree of economy.
The standard version Innoket Roland 40 comes with two cold glue stations. This design allows shoulder and neck labels to be applied at two levels by the first station, for instance, with the second station affixing back labels to the bottles. Alternatively, self-adhesive stations, a combination of cold glue and self-adhesive technology and hot melt labeling processes can be used.

Innoket Neo’s little brother
The Innoket Roland 40 features several of the components found in the high-performance KHS Innoket Neo labeling machine: carousel, infeed and discharge stars, folding doors, installation and format parts and guides and on the cold glue station the gripper cylinder and label magazine. The Innoket Neo servo feed screw has also been applied and integrated here, permitting gentle bottle stops.
There is room for individual labeling tasks on the Innoket Roland 40, says KHS. It is possible, for example, to equip the machine with the KHS VarioDrive electronic bottle plate control system. Other options include mechanical alignment by side notch in the infeed star and the fitting of traveling applicators, the latter used for cap or lid labels. U-shaped labels – as tamper-evident seals for twist-off caps, for instance – can also be labeled and rolled on. Optional sensors check for the presence of labels at certain points, for example in the label magazine or on the gluing roller, and for other factors such as broken bottles. With its many expansion options the KHS Innoket Roland 40 is thus perfectly suited to cater for all requirements in the low capacity range.
KHS will be at Anuga FoodTec (March 20-23 in Cologne, Germany) to demonstrate the capabilities of the Innoket Roland 40. The technology can be viewed live not at the KHS booth but at Florin Gesellschaft für Lebensmitteltechnologie mbH at booth E20/F29 in hall 10.1 where the system designed for an output of 2,500 to 25,000 containers per hour will be exhibited.
