In order to meet demands, Sidel has introduced the new EvoDECO labelling solutions. Based on a common core and optimised design, they enable producers to deliver different stock keeping units (SKUs). They might either include several labelling applications in one multi-technology machine or a single labelling application through dedicated equipment, for optimised uptime, reduced footprint and low total cost of ownership (TCO). The EvoDECO platform is built using the latest technologies regardless of model or configuration. This gives beverage producers the ability to choose solutions based on their specific labelling needs and output levels, without compromising on flexibility, efficiency or sustainability.
Sidel’s most flexible labelling solution to date, the EvoDECO Multi, brings modularity into labelling. It offers a standardised carousel that can be equipped with up to four different labelling technologies: rollfed, self-adhesive, cold glue and hot melt. This allows manufacturers to set up the machine for their unique labelling needs, as they can easily apply several types of la-bels to different types of containers and packaging materials (PET, HDPE, glass), of varying formats and dimensions (from 0.1L to 5L), on a single machine at speeds from 6,000 up to 81,000 containers per hour. Switching between various labelling modules is quick and easy, thanks to Plug & Play connections, offering producers the freedom of labelling choice and total flexibility.
The ergonomics of the solution have been significantly optimised for performance and efficiency as reflected by the linear design of the rollfed station, with all main components fully visible and accessible during production or maintenance, without disengaging the station. Cleaning can be carried out completely automatically during production by a system installed on the vacuum drum, which removes any glue residual for higher performance. It can also be equipped with an automatic label extraction system (protected by Sidel patent), ensuring no downtime occurs due to labels being not properly applied on the bottle or no bottles being pre-sent, for a smooth and consistent flow of production. The label application is carried out with a pad-to-pad transfer, leading to a very stable and accurate process, even at high speeds. Furthermore, the reels auto-splicing system can be activated at very high speeds of up to 30,000 containers per hour resulting in improved productivity.
The Sidel EvoDECO labelling solutions offer beverage producers both total flexibility and un-matched performance to deploy any kind of labelling technologies for all containers. The mod-ular design is coupled with the latest technological innovations in order to deliver high effi-ciency, low total cost of ownership with high output and, above all, great brand experience.
