Labelling Double Act with Planglow

planglow160616Planglow together with Industrial Labelling Systems haa developed a unique new labelling system primarily for bakeries. This allows users to split lengthy product information across two labels which are automatically printed & then applied to the top and base of each specific product.

The ILS Label Print & Apply Primary Product Marking Station combined with Planglow’s market leading LabelLogic software was developed following legislative changes which resulted in some providers having to include much more product information on each individual pack.

John Scott, Managing Director at Planglow commented, “The recent changes to labelling legislation require rather more information than can easily be listed on one label unless the label is very large. To avoid hiding the product under one large label the alternative is to have two – one on the face of the pack to help sell the product and another label on the pack base detailing ingredients, allergens, barcode and other important information which must now be made available to the consumer.

“The Labelling Marking Station reduces staff costs while avoiding mismatched labels too. So the provider will see a return on their initial capital outlay in as little as two years. What’s more, the ILS hardware is market leading in its ease of use with no complicated paper or ribbon path so routine maintenance is well within the scope of the operator – even print head changes can be done by the user and not a specialist provider”.

Denis Brett Managing Director at ILS said, “As new rules are put in place we have to adapt and develop our machines to cater for the specific needs in certain industry sectors. To increase efficiency, accuracy and reduce risk is our goal and the latest marking stations come with the ability to do that for short shelf life products“

How Does It Work?

Utilising Planglow’s market leading labelling software LabelLogic, this easy to use program runs on a standard PC and is able to generate labels that are fully compliant with current legislation. Here the user creates products; print lists and even designs the label templates themselves, splitting data between the front and back of the label as per the pack specifications. Labels are printed pack by pack and applied both top and bottom of the product, or as a promotional label plus standard label. Labels may be positioned in a variety of formats or styles depending on the size of the pack, the length of the label and the pack type. The Labelling Marking Station was originally developed by ILS and Planglow for J & I Smith one of Scotland’s premier bakeries.

J & I Smith’s Company Director, John Smith, commented, “It’s a good compact machine for small businesses and, while it came with full training from an expert trainer, it is set out in such a way that makes it very easy to use and understand. There is now less wastage on labels and it’s very low maintenance as well. I would recommend it to other businesses”.
