Interactive Coding Equipment (ICE) will be launching two new features for its Vulcan print and apply labeller which enable the machine to apply labels to the front of a moving pack, or across adjacent panels of a case or shrink-wrapped product to allow information to be seen in various orientations.

The Corner Wrap system applies the label to the trailing corner of the pack, using the Vulcan ‘direct apply’ printing method. It includes a simple, secondary pneumatic roller wipe to ensure full adhesion of the label around the corner and side of the product. For front of pack applications, the system uses a pneumatically-controlled arm applicator.

Both systems incorporate integrated pack detection and applicator home/extended sensor functionality to ensure accurate label placement every time. ICE claims throughput speeds are faster than typical front-of-pack and corner-wrap machines.

ICE will also show its new Scorpion thermal inkjet printer. This features a novel printhead design which has cartridge protection. This reduces the uncapped time of the cartridge, allowing the use of inks suitable for non-porous substrates without loss of reliability or print quality.
