HERMA US to feature new options on popular labeling equipment

Healthcare Packaging Expo, Chicago 14-17 October


HERMA US Inc., a subsidiary of HERMA GmbH, a Germany-based provider of labeling machinery and self-adhesive labels and materials for the global packaging marketplace, will showcase new features for several of its popular labeling machines at Healthcare Packaging Expo, from 14-17 October in Chicago. HERMA US will be located at Stand W-838.

The company will showcase its HERMA 362 E TE tamper-evident labeling system. Derived from the proven HERMA 362E front/back labeling system, the 362 E TE can apply one or two tamper-evident labels to a wide range of cartons. Tamper-evident labels are a legal requirement forming a vital component in product security for pharmaceutical cartons. The machine is capable of achieving speeds of over 200 cartons per minute. The HERMA 362E TE can be installed with a TIJ or laser coders, as well as a wide range of track and trace systems to produce fully serialized and inspected cartons.

HERMA US also will be showing a higher-speed, motion control version of its HERMA 132M Wrap-around Labeler. It is now available at expedited speeds of 400 products per minute. The turret-based machine features a rotating star wheel for precise product transport. It can be outfitted with a wide range of printing and vision systems. Additionally, it features automatic rejection of out-of-specification labels before they are applied.

Also on display will be HERMA’s 152E Wraparound Labeler. It features the same heavy-duty label applicator platform as the company’s premium ‘M’ (Master) series allowing for simple installation of printers and vision systems. The module can handle substrate diameters from ½” to 4” at speeds of up to 150 products per minute. Furthermore, it can be fitted with either an Allen-Bradley or Siemens PLC controller.

“By adding new features to our existing line of machinery, HERMA continues to emphasize innovation and functionality,” said Peter Goff, chief executive officer of HERMA US. “These capabilities will ensure continuous success in packaging lines in major pharmaceutical companies here in North America and worldwide.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
