GEA TiroLabel PLUS

High-speed cross-web labeling aligned with packaging systems

Fast and flexible labelling of MAP, vacuum and skin packs

Powerful thermoforming packaging machines, such asGEAPowerPak andPowerPakPLUS are designed to produce high-quality food packages at great speed. A labeling machine must match this pace and the variations of packs processed. The extremely user-friendly GEATiroLabelPLUS cross-web labeling system,which can be integrated into non-GEAthermoformers, simplifies any changeover from one package to the next. The highly accurate spring-loaded pins in the motor positioning unit follow any contour on the packages with millimeter precision. 

Main applications

GEATiroLabelPLUScross-weblabeling machines automatically label MAP,vacuumand skin food packsfrom thermoforming packaging machines.The labels can be applied onthetop and/or bottomofthepackages.
