The Mak-2 machine will operate at 8,500 b.p.h. applying body and back labels in both self adhesive and wet glue formats. The modular machine is being fitted with an electronic cam and the label station trolleys will be interchangeable. Apart from Campbell Meyer’s own products the company also blend and bottle for third parties, so the flexible Mak-2 will be able to handle 500ml, 700ml, 750ml and 1 litre round glass bottles and square bottles.
The machine is also designed so that a Third Wet Glue Labelling Station can be added in the future to apply ‘U’-shape Tax Strip Stamp labels. These are applied to the neck of the bottle on the labeller carousel and affixed onto the bottle to form the ‘U’-shaped Strip Stamp utilising the Makro special outfeed starwheel label application, clamping label wipe down system.
Richard Portman, Managing Director of Makro Labelling UK said of this latest order, ”We are of course thrilled to get our first order in Scotland for this prestigious company, the bottle dress for the brands being handled by Campbell Meyer has to be of the highest order as these products will end up on the shelf of high end bars and restaurants around the world. The machine will have maximum flexibility for Campbell Meyer for their current clients and their own brands. The labeller order is part of a line upgrade that Jayco Packaging will be installing in the Spring.”
As Makro Labelling closed the year, the forward orders for 2015 are the best since the company was formed five years ago, with machines for wet glue, self adhesive and roll fed capability going in to Water, Soft Drinks, Wine, Spirits and Ciders.
