Case Study Overview
Rain Nutrience Ltd manufacture nutritional supplements. Rupert's labelling aims were ...
- Apply wrap around labels
- Plastic containers
- 2 container formats
We supplied, installed and commissioned an STS automatic labelling machine.
Rain Nutrience Ltd in Devon manufacture nutritional supplements and provides a contract bottling and distribution service for nutraceutical products.
Co-owner Rupert O'Connell required an automatic labelling machine to apply self-adhesive wrap around labels to 2 sizes of plastic cylindrical container.
We supplied, installed and commissioned an S1/Z Avv linear labelling machine with a throughput of up to 2,500 bottles per hour.
'When the need arose for a new labeller, I took a look around the internet, thinking we would be in the price range of a used machine, or a semi automatic.
I got a phone call almost straight away from Vigo after my internet enquiry. They had a used machine in stock and could do a demo using our own label stock.
The price was less than I had expected for a used machine, and the demo showed it could handle our product, so I bought it. It’s saved a massive amount of time, and it has a coder on it, which I hadn’t originally planned to buy, but now we use it a lot.
Vigo delivered, installed and trained us on the machine. They’ve also been very good about calling round to resolve any small items, things we didn’t understand, rather than a problem.
Labelling used to be by hand, and a tedious time consuming job. Now we can label faster than we can bottle… got to start looking at some other equipment now!'
