NBL chooses Sacmi labels
Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) has announced Sacmi is renewing its labelling machines on account of hard wearing reliability and flexibility.
The decision was based on advanced technical characteristics of Sacmi labelling machines, as well as a similar order placed by its Brazilian partner, Heineken.
The supplied machine, an Opera 600 60T is equipped with three labelling modules for cold glue application and the same number of modules for self-adhesive labelling; these allow output rates of 62,000 and 60,000 applications per hour.
The machine is fully equipped with quality control systems developed by the groups automation and service division, such as Sacmi’s patented bottle positioning system.
Iacopo Bianconcini, marketing manager of the group’s beverage and closures and containers, said: “The latest generation of Sacmi modular labellers stands out on account of an ability to operate efficiently, at high speed, with just a single passage through the machine and across multiple labelling technologies and systems.”
