Harland Mercury High Speed Labeller

This system has been designed for production lines that have a high throughput speed requirement and the need for zero downtime production.

Our market-leading Mercury linear labeller has been designed for applying front & back labels to any shape of glass or plastic bottle or container. This linear labelling machine offers fantastic flexibility, high speed capability and, via a four-applicator configuration, the advantage of zero downtime auto-change.

This 4- or 2-station system can apply front and back labels to any shape of plastic bottle/container at speeds up to 250 ppm and fits nicely in the Harland family of labellers, between the well proven ‘Sirius’ system and ultra high speed ‘Titan’.

  • Quick, easy changeover between products is provided by the use of retractable labelling heads, thus minimising line downtime. Further enhanced by colour-coded change part scrolls.
  • Heavy duty modular construction reducing maintenance and changeover costs. Easily integrated into existing production lines.
  • Enhanced control system incorporating single touchscreen user interface provides a very high level of user diagnostics.
  • Innovative wipe-down module ensures labels are efficiently smoothed to match exactly and accurately the contours of even the most irregularly shaped containers and bottles.
