LSS showcases reliable labellers for the pharmaceutical industry

LSS Labelling Systems Scandinavia offers user-friendly and efficient solutions to meet the challenging demands of the pharmaceutical industry. At this year’s Achema (Frankfurt, Germany - June, 11-15, Hall 1.1 / E42), the labelling expert presents its machines for tamper evident labelling and for vial and bottle labelling. A demonstration of the machines will be given to the press at the booth on Tuesday, June 12.

LSS, a subsidiary of German Logopak, benefits from the expertise of many years of finding individual designed and customized labelling solutions for the pharmaceutical industry. The manufacturer from Denmark knows the needs of their customers and fulfils their unique requirements. LSS has now developed a standard Vial and Bottle Labeller and a Tamper Evident Labeller. Both machines are designed with high attention to simple and safe operation, precision in labelling as well as safe and secure product handling. Easy function overview, inspection and control, easy line clearance and ergonomics are also significant features of both labellers.

Tamper Evident Labelling
From February 2019 on, the European Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) 2011/62/EU will be mandatory for the pharmaceutical industry within the EU. The new Tamper Evident Labeller from LSS complies with the directive and ensures tamper proof security of cartons. As an option, a laser or inkjet printer and a vision system of any brand can be integrated to provide each carton with a unique identification for track & trace and serialisation. The machine is operated with a user friendly HMI. The flexible solution handles cartons ranging from 50 to 220 mm in width, 15 to 120 mm in height and 40 to 120 mm in length. A small foot-print allows the machine to fit into any production area easily.

Secure labelling of vials and bottles
The LSS Vial and Bottle Labeller can be used for labelling a wide variety of smaller cylindrical products made of glass or plastic with a product diameter between 14 and 35 mm and a minimum height of 30 mm. The efficient machine labels up to 250 vials or bottles per minute and runs both as an off-line or in-line unit. Thanks to its small footprint and modular design, it is the right solution for both new and already existing production environments. Vision inspection of both the label and the vial or bottle ensures maximum safety.

LSS Labelling Systems Scandinavia is a leading supplier of labelling solutions with more than 45 years’ experience in the labelling industry. Based in Denmark, the company aims at developing efficient and reliable labelling solutions to the highest possible standards – and achieves them. LSS are experts in product handling, providing solutions that enable labels to be applied to all kinds of products correctly and accurately. Founded in 2001 as a successor to the labelling machinery division of Avery Dennison, LSS was acquired by the Logopak Group in 2014, and now benefits from its membership of the German manufacturer’s worldwide sales and service organisation.
