NJM Introduces Enhanced BRONCO® 130 Pressure Sensitive LabelerAug 09, 2022
Versatile and reliable inline bottle labeling for a wide range of industries
MONTREAL, August 9, 2022 –NJM, a ProMach product brand, introduces the enhanced BRONCO® 130 pressure sensitive labeler at Pack Expo booth #N-5650. This inline, servo-driven system can be configured to apply single, dual, wraparound and/or multi-panel labels to round, square, rectangular and/or oval bottles in a variety of sizes. Featuring new software capabilities and new printer options, the enhanced BRONCO 130 achieves highly flexible, reliable labeling with fast, repeatable format changeovers.
Running at speeds up to 250 bottles per minute, the BRONCO 130 is ideal for manufacturers and contract packers handling cosmetics, personal care products, food, beverages, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals and other applications.
"For more than 100 years, NJM has led the industry in developing the modern labeler. Today’s enhanced BRONCO 130 exemplifies our strategy of continually updating our world-class labeling systems to meet our customers’ changing needs," said Omar Azam, Applications Engineering Manager at NJM. "Drawing on our deep labeling expertise, we’re able to adapt our modular BRONCO 130 to meet even the most challenging customer requests, such as applying clear mylar labels on curved bottles and orienting labels on bottles with handles."
Enabling each system to accommodate a variety of bottle shapes, the BRONCO 130 is available with a variety of bottle handling devices, including a spacing wheel, a starwheel, a chain aligner and a single or dual feedscrew drive. To apply a range of label types and sizes, each labeler is available with an assortment of label application and wipedown devices, including either one or two servo-driven label dispensers. NJM can equip the enhanced BRONCO 130 with an inline hot stamp printer or a serialization-capable thermal transfer or laser printer. An optional inspection system detects label accuracy, label placement, variable data and more, and an optional reject system removes bottles with out-of-tolerance labels.
The enhanced BRONCO 130 features a new versatile PLC, HMI and servo drive controls platform that offers more advanced software capabilities. Encoder-based fail-safe reject tracking of labels and containers is available to ensure that ‘bad’ labels and bottles are always rejected and verified. For a seamless user experience, customers can choose to upgrade to a PC-based HMI that supports fully-integrated vision inspection. Additionally, the BRONCO 130 is now available with software options for audit trails, electronic signatures and advanced user management through LDAP for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance. Onboard production batch reporting tools for machine operation, statistics and OEE are also supported through the PC-based HMI.
Package and label changeovers are completed quickly and reliably on the BRONCO 130 with no tools required and minimal change parts in as little as ten minutes, depending on the application.
Featuring stainless steel and anodized aluminum construction, an open-frame design and a raised-bed conveyor, this labeler complies with cGMP standards and offers quick and easy line clearance and inspection. The swivel-mounted 10-inch (254mm) color touchscreen presents a large and intuitive user interface with electronic recipes and graphical display of machine status and alarms. To maximize long-term flexibility, each installed BRONCO 130 can be configured for retrofit in the field with new label applicators, printers and/or other devices, as customer needs change.
NJM offers a "total solution" approach that includes IQ, OQ, FDS, SDS, SAT and HDS validation support as well as turnkey line integration services to seamlessly combine best-in-class technologies. NJM’s world-class aftersales support includes standard and extended warranties, preventative maintenance programs and onsite installation, training and ongoing service.
