Labeler HERMA 400 – The world standard in label applicators
Compact, modular, servo driven. The compact labeler range with a modular system
Uniquely compact, incomparably versatile: The HERMA 400 is a true space-saving wonder and is the world’s best-selling applicator in the high-quality product sector. With its wide range of available accessory modules, the HERMA 400 can be easily integrated into any packaging line. For this reason and because of its high performance and reliability, the 400 is the heart of every HERMA labeling machine.
The HERMA 400 can apply any type of adhesive label to virtually any type of product or package. It is used in a number of industries, including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, logistics, food and beverages, the automotive industry and the chemical industry. Depending on the machine type, the applicator can be installed in the horizontal, upright or suspended position.
With the HERMA 400, you have the perfect solution for any application. Regardless of which configuration you select, the basic drive unit with the servo motor is always the same. The same drive unit means you only ever have to deal with one device, one replacement part, guaranteeing optimal availability.
The intuitive operator display allows you to easily and conveniently set the parameters to custom configure the applicator. The special unwind unit used in the HERMA 400 models keeps the label web evenly tensioned, which prevents tolerance problems at the dispensing beak. Both the unwind and take-up reels are built nearly identically and provide the same reliability. The threading and tensioning processes are designed to be particularly user friendly. The HERMA 400 can automatically synchronize its labeling speed with the product speed with no delay. This ensures that every label is applied precisely where it belongs. The digital input function can be used to finely tune the speed.
Motorized unwinder and motorized backing paper take-up unit
Unwinder and rewinder are independently driven. Ideally suited for label reels with an outer diameter of 400mm (optional 500 mm) and a score diameter of 3"/76 mm. The labeling speed can be up to 80 m/min - up to 150 m/min when fitted with the optional loop-type unwinder.
