KHS Innoket Roland 40: compact labeling machine for the beverage and food industries
With the Innoket Roland 40 the KHS Group has launched a compact labeler to market.
The KHS InnoketNeo’s little brother has a capacity of 2,500 to 25,000 containers per hour and is thus specifically tailored to the requirements of the food industry.
- Space-saving table machine for the low capacity range
- High-quality mechanical design based on the Innoket Neo
- Many expansion options for individual requirements
Dortmund, February 13, 2018 – With the Innoket Roland 40 the KHS
Group has launched a compact labeler to market. The KHS Innoket
Neo’s little brother has a capacity of 2,500 to 25,000 containers per
hour and is thus specifically tailored to the requirements of the food
industry. The Innoket Roland 40 can be fitted with various labeling
stations and is characterized by its ease of use and the accustomed
high quality offered by KHS.
“The machine is specially geared towards lines with a low output,” explains
Cornelius Adolf, labeling product manager at KHS. During development
particular attention was paid to simple operation and a high degree of
economy. The table machine is not only of interest to craft breweries but
also to companies in the food sector, such as manufacturers of canned
food, sauces or dressings.
In its standard version the Innoket Roland 40 comes with two cold glue
stations. This allows shoulder and neck labels to be applied at two levels
by the first station, for instance, with the second station affixing back labels
to the bottles. Alternatively, self-adhesive stations, a combination of cold glue and self-adhesive technology and hot melt labeling processes can be
Proven components from the high-capacity range
Inside the Innoket Roland 40 are countless quality-determining
components taken from the established high-performance KHS Innoket
Neo labeling machine. These include the carousel, infeed and discharge
stars, folding doors, installation and format parts and guides and on the
cold glue station the gripper cylinder and label magazine. The Innoket Neo
servo feed screw has also been applied and integrated here, permitting
gentle bottle stops.
Plenty of upwards scope
The KHS development also provides many different opportunities for
extension to cater for individual labeling tasks. It is possible, for example,
to equip the Innoket Roland 40 with the KHS VarioDrive electronic bottle
plate control system. Other options include mechanical alignment by side
notch in the infeed star and the fitting of traveling applicators, the latter
used for cap or lid labels. U-shaped labels – as tamper-evident seals for
twist-off caps, for instance – can also be labeled and rolled on. Optional
sensors check for the presence of labels at certain points, for example in
the label magazine or on the gluing roller, and for other factors such as
broken bottles. With its many expansion options the KHS Innoket Roland
40 is thus perfectly suited to cater for all requirements in the low capacity
At Anuga FoodTec the Innoket Roland 40 demonstrates its perfect
suitability for the food industry through its point of display alone. The
technology can be viewed live not at the KHS booth but at Florin
Gesellschaft für Lebensmitteltechnologie mbH at booth E20/F29 in hall
10.1 where the system designed for an output of 2,500 to 25,000
containers per hour will be exhibited.
