Accuracy, simplicity and increased plant efficiency were the medicines for Baxter
Baxter Laboratories, a contract manufacturer to the pharmaceutical and personal care industry, prides itself on innovation, customer service excellence and effective supply chain management. So when the labelling accuracy of its existing equipment began to falter, it was quick to respond with a review of a better alternatives.
That was 18 months ago, and the solution Result Group recommended for Baxter was the HERMA 400 label applicator. This compact label applicator is versatile and particularly user-friendly. But, importantly for Baxter, the result was a vast improvement in labelling accuracy.
“All HERMA label applicator machines use the tried and tested state-of-the-art HERMA 400 servo-driven applicator, which ensures labels are consistently applied with a very high degree of accuracy,” said Michael Harrop, from Result Group.
Once the HERMA 400 proved itself to be an invaluable asset, Baxter looked to completely replace its existing equipment with the robust and durable HERMA 362E. This has been in operation for six months now, labelling a range of pack formats including spray bottles, tubes, bottles and jars, just to name a few.
The HERMA E Series label applicators combine the durability and speed of the larger HERMA M Series with the space saving of the compact HERMA C Series. The feature of speed also applies to module changeovers, which can be installed and changed quickly, greatly reducing ongoing production costs.
Baxter Operations Manager Ian Tilley said, “We’re now swapping all our machines over to HERMA. Not only have the machines increased our labelling accuracy and production efficiency, and minimised set-up time, the service that we’ve received from Result Group throughout the process has been second to none.
“The extent to which we’re happy with the HERMA 362E is demonstrated by the fact that we’ve got more machines on order.”
The HERMA 362E has front, back and wraparound labelling capabilities with an excellent price-performance ratio. It also features an operator-friendly, easy-to-use touch screen with the ability to save job and mechanical settings, once again saving you time in set-up.
Michael Harrop from Result Group said, “With its advanced handling, we always knew the HERMA system was good, but it’s very reassuring to learn of our client’s satisfaction with them. Satisfaction that is simply because of a great result.”
