Herma US Inc. introduces the Herma 500 label applicator, an IOT-enabled machine utilizing real-time metrics to optimize production efficiency and consistency, even in a multi-factory setting.

Capable of achieving labeling speeds up to 200 m/min, the Herma 500 can handle label widths between 80-320 mm and roll diameters from 300–600 mm. It is a next-generation label applicator that builds upon its predecessor’s best features and integrates Industry 4.0 connectivity.

It has a maximum speed 70 ft/min higher than the H400. A maximum speed of 650 ft/min can be reached. The module offers short make-ready time and offers industrial-grade Ethernet connection.

Remote access via web browsers allows for off-site operation and, on-site, the Herma 500’s user interface displays intuitive pictograms on a 4.3 in. touchscreen, with simple access to format management and other user adjustable parameters

A variety of optional upgrades can be accessed by simple code activation, and the unit’s firmware is automatically upgraded via ethernet. Both left- and right-hand models are available for seamless equipment integration.

“The fully connectivity-enabled Herma 500 keeps pace with digitized factories as industry moves toward more comprehensive 4.0 integration,” said Peter Goff, CEO of Herma US Inc. “Such innovative technology allows manufacturers to track performance and enhance synergy on product lines, all while ensuring optimized speed, connectivity and safety.”
