What shapes of container do you need to label?
Designed to accommodate a wide variety of round, oval, flat, and rectangular containers and packaging, the all-new MFlex™ Pressure-Sensitive Wrap and Front & Back Label Applicators can handle anything from conventional wrap applications to precise front and back product labeling.
Engineered for modularity and flexibility, MFlex™ Pressure-Sensitive Label Applicators feature integrated product handling and electronic synchronization that ensures accurate label placement even when line speeds vary. Making for a simple yet sophisticated labeling solution that is not only easy to control but maintain.
MFlex™ Front & Back – Label Applicator System
The EPI MFlex™ Front & Back labeling system was designed with an optional label wrap module, a simple solution for front, back, and wrap labeling all in one machine.
What options are available for the MFlex Front & Back?
This system has a robust, welded, stainless steel frame and corrosion-resistant conveyor, modules available include:
- One or more M2 Systems Labeling Heads.
- Indeed spacing device – usually spacing wheels or belts.
- Product orientation device to ensure products are consistently aligned prior to labeling.
- Top hold belt to stabilize products as they are labeled.
- Label wrap station to allow round containers to be labeled, adding to the system’s flexibility.
- Optional printer adds variable data such as date/lot codes, production codes, and barcodes to the labels.
MFlex™ Wrap – Label Applicator System
Now, if you just need a pressure-sensitive labeler for round containers only, we have our EPI MFlex™ Wrap.
With our MFlex Wrap labeler, we have thought through all the important details, so you don’t have to worry about them. As well as an integrated mechanical design and the ability to accurately label a wide range of container sizes.
What options are available for MFlex Wrap?
In its basic form, the MFlex labeler for round containers consists of welded stainless steel frame, conveyor section, product spacing wheel, an M2 system labeling head, and a label wrap station.
This configuration can handle many labeling applications, but there are optional modules that can make it even more flexible:
- Twin belt product spacing device
- Vacuum wrap station for long or curved labels
- Trap and spin module for unstable containers and ally a label in register
- Integrated TTO, laser, or thermal inkjet coder for adding variable information to labels
- Zero-downtime solutions
Simple, Yet Sophisticated
By engineering the MFlex to be simple to use and maintain and building in the latest in sophisticated motion control technology, it is the perfect solution for many labeling applications.
One Control to Rule Them All
Have you noticed that some labeling systems have multiple control interfaces, some quite complicated?
We want the operators to love the MFlex, so each labeler has a singular HMI from which the entire machine is controlled—without having to move to a different part of the system to adjust or change settings.
The system is designed to be simple for routine tasks but can also help maintenance with in-depth diagnostics when needed.
Want to reduce set-up time? It’s easy; once you have a labeling job set up and ready to run, save it as a recipe, ready to instantly recall for next time.
Syncing Outside the Box
Synchronizing all the machine modules on a labeling machine is critical to getting the best results. That’s why we’ve made MFlex amazingly intelligent with its closed-loop servo drive system.
The speeds of the labeler modules are monitored constantly, and the system responds to any changes in real-time.
If the conveyor speed changes while the machine applies a label – or even stops completely – the label is still correctly positioned on the product every time.
This sophisticated system works happily behind the scenes, ensuring everything is in perfect sync while the operators can get on with other tasks.
Harsh Environment? Bring it on!
A lot of packaging equipment doesn’t have the luxury of operating in perfect conditions – sometimes the areas where machines such as labelers are installed are wet or dusty – maybe the equipment has to be washed down for sanitation.
That’s why we engineered our MFlex machines to meet IP65 protection standards right out of the box. No need to pay extra or to specify optional features. Every MFlex is built on the understanding that it might have to work in less than perfect conditions.
Even if your packaging line is set up in a friendly environment, having your labeler designed to this standard will help prolong its service life.
Meet the Mod Squad
The MFlex Front & Back labeler and the MFlex Wrap labeler are members of our Mod Squad – a range of flexible and modular labeling systems designed to handle the most common labeling applications.
All MFlex models share many of the same features:
- The same well-engineered anti-corrosive frame and construction.
- All have the same singular HMI and screens, optimized for ease of use.
- The standard IP65 environmental protection, right out of the box.
- Common motors and motion control modules through the range.
- Being part of ProMach Labeling & Coding, EPI has extensive sales and technical support across North America.
MFlex labeling systems are built here in the USA, in our manufacturing plants in New Freedom, PA, and Oakland, NJ.
