The customer was interested in a solution that delivered both labelling and batch traceability to their glass bottles. Batch traceability and minimum dates of durability (best before dates) are required under EU labelling laws which food manufacturers must comply with. We had the ideal solution for the Sauce Shop by way of a 2-in-1 solution; a Citronix CIJ printer and an Intrex SET 1101 Cylindrical bottle labeller machine. Because the CIJ printer calls for product movement to pass by the print head, the SET 1101 with its built-in conveyor system provided that handling of the glass bottles. The system allows the client to label and prints up to 60 bottles per minute making it a fast end-of-line packaging machine.
