Bell and Howell Unveils Gantry-Style Linerless Labeling Solution at ProMat 2013

Monday, January 21, 2013

At ProMat 2013, Bell and Howell will unveil a gantry-style top-apply labeling solution that utilizes the company’s patented and patent-pending technologies to deliver up to three times the output of traditional parcel management systems. The linerless, print-and-apply labeling technology provides higher throughput and improved efficiency. Bell and Howell will showcase the technology, and other parcels and flats solutions, in booth 3553 at McCormick Place, Chicago, Jan. 21 through Jan. 24.

This innovative technology is central to ParcelMgr™, an integrated solution that incorporates state-of-the-art components to provide a system that achieves greater throughput and efficiency, resulting in a high return on investment. The linerless labeling technology that ParcelMgr utilizes has been perfected through thousands of installations in demanding production environments. The combination of the efficient linerless labeling technology and some of the fastest print engines on the market enables ParcelMgr to easily outperform traditional solutions.

In addition to improving speed, the patented linerless technology produces a much greater up-time by providing up to 220 percent more labels per roll than what traditional 12” OD die-cut systems use. With no liner waste to discard, the solution is both green and efficient. In addition, the linerless technology allows the system to produce varying length labels on demand, eliminating the need for multiple dedicated systems.

“Throughput limitations in the manufacturing and distribution process are typically created by the labeling system. The preferred label location in many cases is the top panel of the carton,” said Rich Wojdyla, Bell and Howell’s Business Development Manager for Logistics. “This is the most demanding application for a traditional labeling system due to the method in which the system must cycle between the printing and application of each label. To accommodate this limitation, the system must decrease the conveyor speed, increase the carton spacing, or provide multiple printer applicators. ParcelMgr resolves these issues, and delivers the throughput that distribution-center and logistics managers require to keep up with the increasing growth in parcel processing.”

A video of the ParcelMgr system, featuring the linerless labeling system, is available on YouTube.
