top labelaar (sealer) ARCO

How our Top Labeler works

Full open punnets are sealed by ARCO’s Top Labeler to keep the products fresh as long as possible. This is done by applying a layer of foil to the top of the punnet. The advantage of the Top Labeler is that this system can easily handle multiple punnet sizes within easy adjustments. A Top Sealer that melts the seal onto the punnet needs a different mold for each punnet size. With the Top Labeler (this is not required), a single operator only needs to adjust the machine for the different size punnet and can therefore change relatively quickly between different punnet sizes and different top seals. This is much more economical than buying a new mold for each size.

The top layer is made of clear recyclable plastic and can additionally be made with pre-printed text on the foil. Once the top layer is applied to the punnet, the Top Labeler can also print and apply a label directly. This label can be attached to the top and bottom of the punnet as well as to the sides. A conveyor belt then allows the punnet to go through the final steps of the production process and be prepared for transport.

Use of our Top Labeler

The Top Sealer can be combined with plastic punnets, cardboard punnets and pulp punnets (made of recycled material). The only condition is that they have an edge on which the seal can be stuck. The Top Labeler is mainly used in the food industry and is very suitable for soft fruits, which are loose in punnets, such as: strawberries, mushrooms, fresh herbs, cherries and blueberries.
