The Herma 500 label applicator is an internet of things (IoT)-enabled system that achieves labeling speeds up to 200 meters per minute, handles label widths from 80 to 320 millimeters, and works with roll diameters from 300 to 600mm. From Herma US, the unit uses real-time metrics to optimize production efficiency and create consistent performance.

The Herma 500 offers short setup time and features an industrial-grade Ethernet connection. The user interface incorporates intuitive pictograms on a 4.3-inch touchscreen, allowing ease of access to format management and other adjustable parameters. Operators can access the label applicator remotely through web browsers for off-site operation and adjustment.

Users can access a number of optional upgrades through code activation; firmware is upgraded automatically via Ethernet. Choose from left- or right-hand models for flexible equipment integration.
