Print and apply systems: Questions to Mario Hiss

Why are the Hermes print and apply systems in automated manufacturing processes that successful?

Read the interview

Geiger Textil labels laundry packages

in motion with print and apply system Hermes+ and stroke-blow applicator 4614.

Case study and video

Hermes+ details1 Large graphic display
White backlight provides optimum readability. Depending on the orientation of assembly, the display can be rotated in steps of 90°.

2 Navigator pad
allows simple, interactive menu control. Only applicable functions are displayed by the day and night design. In conjunction with the graphic display, navigation is made easy to understand.

3 Ribbon holder
Three-part tightening axles allows the ribbon to be exchanged quickly and easily.

4 Rugged metal chassis made of cast aluminum
Basis to assemble all components

5 Applicator assembly
The applicator is attached to hinge pins and can be easily removed for maintenance.

6 Print positioning
After inserting a new label roll, print positioning occurs automatically after few labels. The reference value remains even when the device is switched off.

7 Print head
To be exchanged in few steps. Adjustments and settings are easy to make.

8 Automatic ribbon saving
in case labels are printed only partially. Along blank areas, the print head is lifted and ribbon feed interrupts while label feed continues.

9 Label unwinder
The swing lever and the integral brake enable labels to be unwound with constant tension.

10 Liner rewinder
After all labels have been demanded, the liner of the label roll is fully rewound. The tightening axle allows the roll to be removed easily.

11 Feed system
The ball bearing transport rollers ensure highly accurate printing and a precise feed.

Direction of label demand
All Hermes+ devices with applicators are provided as left hand or right hand version.

  1. Limitations may apply to small labels, thin materials or strong adhesives. Critical applications need to be tested.
  2. In case of carrier material with a width less than 24 mm the label roll has to be guided by additional margin stops centered to the ribbon to achieve accuracy of impression. Kits are available on request.
  3. The ribbon should at least correspond with the width of the carrier material.
