Minebea Intec launch NEW OCM Weigh Price Labeller with complete field to fork traceability and 24/7 on site service support12 October 2020
Minebea Intec have brought their expertise in checkweighing to the labelling market with a new OCM specifically designed for the meat, fish, dairy, fruit and vegetable markets. The new WPL–S is a manual weigh price labeller best suited to low volume and products not suitable for automatic labelling. It boasts an array of features including industry leading hygienic design, field to fork traceability to adhere to government guidelines, integration with other hardware and open source software, automated reporting, a 2 year warranty and 24/7 on-site service support.
Colin Maher, Country Manager said; ‘Outer Case Labelling isn’t an area we’ve worked in previously but requests from customers made us realise that demand for a superior labelling product combined with our levels of service was huge. We’ve taken our renowned weighing technology and combined it with labelling solutions that can be configured to the customers exact requirements’.
The WPL-S produces labels for a variety of purposes including calculation of price based on weight, calculation of best by date based on product, packaging, fresh or frozen and calculation of cooking time based on product, size and weight. It is highly configurable, and customers can choose from a wide variety of components; different screen sizes, printers, scales, scanners, indicators and endless software possibilities.
Colin continued ‘What really sets the WPL-S apart from its competition is the Minebea Intec 24/7 on site service support we’re able to offer. Production downtime is kept to an absolute minimum because Service Engineers can offer virtual support to resolve issues immediately but can also be on-site night or day 7 days a week if necessary.’
Existing customers R&J Yorkshire’s Finest Farmers and Butchers have been one of the first to purchase the WPL-S and have already started to reap the rewards.
Ryan Atkinson, Managing Director of R&J commented; ‘It’s a slick piece of equipment which speeds up production and it’s much easier to clean and maintain. The software is great; it allows multiple screens to be open at once and the reporting tools are more user friendly. The in-house label design software offers more scope and the shortcut features saves the operators so much time.’
