Beck Automation to Introduce New Adjustment Head at Tradeshow

Beck Automation AG, Oberengstringen, Switzerland, planned to announce the launch of a new adjustment head for precision label alignment at the Medical Design and Manufacturing (MD&M) West show (Booth #2963) Feb. 7-9 in Anaheim, California. The company also planned to provide an update on its recent decision to establish a medical business unit focused on the development of in-mold labeling (IML) and automation solutions for injection molding applications.

In today’s IML systems, the positioning of labels can change during operation. This can occur due to a magazine change, label change or within a label stack due to cutting tolerances.

The adjustment head is an integral part of the IML system, which picks up individual labels and measures and aligns them in the desired position. Exact label alignment increases positioning accuracy and reduces waste and manual fine adjustment.

A separate business unit was founded within the company so it could operate autonomously and thus react competently, flexibly and quickly to customer requirements, according to Ralf Ziemer, Beck Automation sales manager-medical.

“Customers benefit from our highly efficient, customized systems that offer sustainable economic advantages,” said Ziemer. “We set ourselves to the highest standards in product and production reliability and ensure this through solutions that are reproducible, validated, and hygienically flawless.”
