Accraply

Accraply, a worldwide enterprise in the design and manufacture of label application systems, has introduced the Trine Modular Labeling Station, an upgrade for existing Trine roll-fed labelers that enables significant process improvements with minimal line disruption. Designed to integrate quickly and seamlessly with existing Trine labelers, this upgrade was engineered to improve throughput, simplify changeovers and operation, reduce maintenance costs and improve label appearance.

The Trine Modular Labeling Station can be retrofitted to an existing Trine labeling system or be used with a new Trine system. This solution was designed to satisfy the evolving requirements of Accraply’s Trine customer base.

This innovation is based exclusively on feedback from our customers who are already using Trine labeling systems,” said Troy Peterson, Accraply’s Trine product line leader. “We are excited to bring this modular and easy-to-install solution to the roll-fed label market.”

To mitigate costs and line disruption, this upgrade leverages the customer’s existing product handling system and existing Trine change parts. It can be installed in as few as three days, bringing the latest roll-fed labeling technology to the customer’s operations quickly while minimizing downtime.

The labeling station includes Accraply’s SmartLink HMI, a next-generation controls platform with efficiency reporting, preventative maintenance alerts, self-diagnosing software, video tutorials, and onboard parts ordering. This HMI simplifies operation and increases throughput. It also decreases setup time by eliminating variables and opportunities for operator error.

In addition, the Trine Modular Labeling Station includes improvements to maintenance, safety, and waste reduction. The large diameter glue roll eliminates glue slinging and reduces vacuum drum cleaning time by 50 percent. The glue roller and glue scraper systems are safe, easy to keep clean and provide a simple setup. The self-timing, servo-driven system includes fewer moving components and wear parts than previous Trine labelers, reducing the need for replacement parts and operator adjustment.

Accraply is one of several Barry-Wehmiller companies represented in BW Packaging Systems, which brings together the collective packaging capabilities of Accraply, BW Flexible Systems, BW Integrated Systems, Pneumatic Scale Angelus, and Synerlink.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
