Glanbia installs Sessions Spectrum Labelling System.

Reduced costs and improved efficiency are two benefits achieved by Glanbia Foods switching from hand to automatic labelling of bulk catering packs of grated cheese. The labelling is now handled by a specially modified Spectrum unit supplied by Sessions of York.

The three-colour, printed self-adhesive label is applied from below a dedicated split conveyor by the Sessions system to the underside of the 2 kg polybags of Minsterley Cheddar Cheese. The Spectrum is avail able from Sessions in widths of 115mm and 195mm, with a stepper motor providing speeds of up to 50 metres per minute. It will speed follow or operate in "partner" mode, allowing constant running without downtime for label stock replacement. The compact Spectrum is ideally suited for use in restricted spaces.
