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.
Label sizes can be up to 15 x 11 cm. Using Innova Label Designer, the WPL9000+ can print Unicode characters for multi-lingual printing (i.e. Asian fonts). It also has advanced barcode printing options, which respect multiple standards such as 1D/2D barcode formats, QR codes and Data Matrix.
In addition to the weighing and conveyor speed, the printing speed has also increased. High-resolution printing is standard.
The WPL 9000+ can handle multiple label applicators, such as Top&Base applicator, M360 linerless D-labeling (only fixed-weight) and MPL80 C-labeler.
Compact and robust
The WPL 9000+ is easy to configure, use and operate. Reliability and serviceability have been improved, thanks amongst other things to the use of the latest technology electronics using upgraded processors. Its compactness is a big plus, as it only requires a small footprint in the factory. Its construction is robust. High quality, longer lasting materials have been used, which can contribute to a lower cost of ownership.
Quick changeover is possible if the configuration needs to be different. A simplified label path, fast label threading, the quick-release printhead and quick-release conveyor systems are features, which aid this ability by offering easier access and set-up.
The WPL9000+ can function as a stand-alone machine but can also be part of a bigger solution, integrated in a packing line and managed by Innova software.
The WPL9000+ integrates even better into Marel’s Innova software platform and offers better control of production. This software connection allows scalable solutions and built-in label design, while providing real-time monitoring and reporting. The Innova modules ‘WPL’ and ‘OCM’ offer real-time data control, collection and analysis of all operations in a single system, while the label-creating editor ‘Labeling’ simplifies label management.
Each Individual item is recorded and can be automatically boxed, palletized and labeled based on product count or total weight. When configured as a plant-wide solution, the software can connect with Innova OEE and Innova Order Manager. Users can also track product and weight information for traceability and for minimizing risk and maintaining control.
