Poultry processors must weigh and label their retail products accurately, while ensuring top levels of productivity. That’s why Iceland based company Marel has introduced its new WPL 9000+, a dynamic, high-speed Weigh Price Labeler.
It is capable of handling fixed and catch weight products and will print the required product information on a label. The developers of this piece of equipment have put a clear emphasis on high accuracy when weighing and labeling.
With the worldwide consumption of protein growing at a consistent rate, poultry meat producers are looking for equipment, which can weigh, price and label products quickly, accurately and reliably, whilst maintaining production uptime.
The greater weighing range of the Marel WPL9000+ weigh price labeler extends from 40 g up to 5.5 kg [0.2lbs to 12lbs]. Increased weighing and labeling speed gives a throughput of up to 160 boxes per minute with accurate label placement and precise weighing increments, which can be set at 1 or 2 grams.
The WPL9000+ generates a wide range of product information and can apply many different label types. It is able to apply labels to multiple surfaces on a variety of products and on every side of a tray or box. Marel is in fact the only supplier to provide a solution for every label format.
