Tamper Evident Labeling has a few very unique challenges that other labeling applications may not have to solve. Experience in this type of application is critical for success.
Tamper evident labels are quite often small, clear, made of very thin material, and are most likely required to be wrapped around a carton tuck flap or corner. Handling of small, clear, flimsy, and often round, tamper evident labels can be difficult and almost always requires specific attention to the type of label itself. The labeling head must be configured to dispense the labels very precisely even though they are often very difficult to see on the web backing material. The continued dispensing accuracy of a round shaped label can also present challenges. It is impossible to apply such labels to two sides of an item at the same time, thus securing it in such a way as to give evidence of possible tampering. As a result, the actual application must be a very closely controlled two step process. Accomplishing both application steps and achieving a smooth application around a corner of an item is the challenge. Handling the product is a critical part of maintaining labeling consistency.
The Accutrak T.E. (Tamper Evident) series of labeling systems comes in three different versions. The T.E. 80 is designed to apply tamper evident labels at speeds up to 80 ppm; the T.E. 150, 150 ppm; the T.E. 250, 250 ppm. All three of our tamper evident labeling systems can be supplied with one, two, or three label applicators. The applicators can be mounted in any combination of either top or side. The basic frame of the system is the same as on our standard Accutrak Front and Back Labeling System. The base is modified to allow for a wide variety of applicator mounting arrangements, fold tooling, and wipe down devices. Many options are available for this machine including alarm packages, inspections, and verification devices. Please contact us for more information on this or any of our other products.
