Hermes C - two-color print and apply

Hermes C LogoTwo-color printing and applying in real-time

Hermes C is the first labeling system worldwide to print and apply two-color labels in one operation. It has been developed and optimized especially for applications corresponding to the new Classification and Labeling Inventory according to GHS.

Due to the integrated backfeed system single labels can be printed and applied on request without loss of labels.

All shapes of packaging can be marked, for example bottles, cans, drums, buckets, cardboard or pallets.

Because of the modular construction system Hermes C offers a proper solution for every application.

Hermes C - two-color print and apply system

  • Designed for industrial application
  • Simple integration in production lines
  • Interfaces to connect to ERP and Process Control Systems are available

Nominated for German Packaging Award 2015cab wins German Packaging Award 2015 in category "Labels, seals and other packaging aids" with Hermes C. The award was presented on FachPack in Nuremberg in September.

When it comes to marking chemicals and hazardous substances, GHS and REACH demand new, standardized pictograms. The guidelines apply worldwide.

As part of this standardization, imperfectly printed danger symbols, for example blank rhombs, are not permitted any longer.

With Hermes C labels can be individually designed and printed. For your application we provide labels and ribbons, BS5609/3 certified as well.

Anwenderbericht TFL

" GHS demanded two-color printing. For us it was important that the bags and barrels are labeled directly in the line taking into account the product speed respectively the speed of the conveyor belt."

Daniel Jardot, General Manager of TFL France

Hermes C applicators

Stroke applicators with tamp or roll-on pad and  vacuum belt applicators.

For real-time labeling

Hermes C details1. Graphic display

The white backlight provides good readability. Depending on the installation position, the display may be turned in 90° steps.

2. Navigator pad

Simple, interactive menu control, only applicable functions are displayed by the day and night design. Along with the graphic display the menu navigation is easy to understand.

3. Ribbon holder

Quick and simple exchange of ribbon due to three-part tightening axles

4. Metal chassis

For the mounting of the modules it is made of torsion resistant die-cast aluminum.

5. Print positioning

The print position is automatically set after a new label roll has been inserted. The reference value is kept even if the device is switched off.

6. Print heads 1 and 2

The pressing force can be adjusted according to the label width.

7. Ribbon saver

At print head 1 the print head is lifted within the unprinted area and the ribbon is stopped during label feeding.

8. Transport system

Ball bearing mounted rollers provide high printing accuracy.

9. Label unwinder

Due to the swing lever and an integrated brake the labels are unwound with constant tension.

10. Liner rewinder

The liner of a label roll is completely rewound after the labels have been peeled off. The steering axle enables an easy exchange of the label roll.

11. Cover

To protect from dust and damage a cover can be mounted.
