Modular labeling solution saves time and mitigates waste with toolless changeovers and smart HMI.

FREMONT, CA: Accraply, a leading company in the design and manufacture of label application systems, introduces the Sirius MK6, a heavy-duty, modular labeler developed for high-speed label applications. With repeatable, toolless changeovers, the Sirius MK6 reduces waste and saves time.  Tailored for label applications with innovative machine capability needs, the Sirius MK6 includes Accraplys SmartLink HMI, offering easy access to efficiency reporting, preventative maintenance alerts, and self-diagnosing software. Through this next-generation smart HMI, overall device effectiveness can also be measured, enabling operators to seamlessly identify and order parts.

Joining the Sirius 100 and Trine modular labeling station, the Sirius MK6 is one of three labeling innovations designed by Accraply in 2020. Jamie Clark, Accraplys Pressure-Sensitive Product Line Leader, released the Sirius MK6 at the PACK EXPO Connects virtual trade show in November. The Sirius MK6 is designed for seamless onboarding and operation. Its operator interface includes video tutorials to walk users through setting it up, scheduling maintenance activities to prevent breakdowns, and using full servo integration to eliminate wear parts.

Coupled with the Comet series applicator, the Sirius MK6 offers precise, consistent label placement ideal for the pharmaceutical, food, contract packaging, automotive and industrial sectors. Accraply is one of many Barry-Wehmiller firms represented in BW Packaging Systems, which brings together the collective packaging potentials of Accraply, BW Flexible Systems, BW Integrated Systems, Pneumatic Scale Angelus, and Synerlink.

Accraply unites some of the trusted names in product decoration and material converting. Known for the cutting-edge technology and innovative custom-engineered designs, Accraply has been credited with several industry firsts and innovations in application and converting technologies. Accraply, a Barry-Wehmiller Packaging Systems firm, is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture, and support of pressure-sensitive, roll-fed, and shrink sleeve label application systems and converting and finishing equipment for the shrink sleeve and flexible packaging markets.
