Flexible, intelligent and scalable. Introducing the dynamic labelling systems that keep production lines moving

No more downtime from label replenishment or system maintenance

In high-speed packaging lines, Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is everything. As the market-leading specialist in Print and Apply systems, we understand that downtime equals disruption and loss of revenue, so why compromise?

At Cobalt, all our systems are designed to be both modular and scalable accounting for your environment.

With our continuous operation systems, there is no need to stop for label replenishment or preventative maintenance, so your lines keep running. Our systems also deliver an excellent return on investment for lines running at 40 packs a minute plus.

Cobalt Continuous Operation Systems

Dynamic systems that maximise uptime.

Offering complete flexibility, just two stand-alone systems can be configured into a continuous operation system with the addition of a control module. Likewise, the Nexus and contact Print and Apply heads can have Sentinel on board added at any time.

Where one head can’t keep up with peak production, we can offer 3 headed systems where the first 2 can share the load with the third being the standby, ensuring zero downtime and maximum productivity.

Features Benefits
High speed print & apply without stopping for media replenishment 99.9% running time availability. Primary and Slave labelling heads capable of over 80 packs per minute.

Available with Linear, SWP, Belt Transfer & Pivot Nexus Heads Side, front, or top of product application.

Cobalt Sentinel Onboard – Verification and Validation 100% Barcode quality inspection on print allowing degradation to be detected ahead of failure for informed production decisions. Post application validation for presence and correctness. Using this system means that a poor quality label is never applied giving the user complete peace of mind.

Dynamic Continuous Operation Control Build back is cleared. No line stoppage.

*Side of product application only* - Side of line basement with manual slideways and swivel movement Allows each machine to be taken out of line for media replenishment, without the line/other head stopping production, keeping the operator safely away from the running line.

Industry leading 3-year warranty Precise label positioning with digital position indicator display. Automatic movement of head out of line in the event of an error/media out, keeping the operator a safe distance from the line.

*front and top application only* - Enclosure guarding PUWER compliance (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations).

Triple Head Option 99.9% running time availability. Primary and Slave labelling heads each capable of over 160 packs per minute.

Industry leading 3- year warranty Resilient by design, low maintenance costs. Fixed price service packs available
