Coding and marking equipment manufacturer Allen Coding Systems has introduced a ’greener’ labelling system. Diagraph’s Platinum E Series All Electric Labelling System claims to use 50% less energy than other pneumatic models. UK sales and OEM manager Steve Ryan said it offers all the performance and features of its earlier equipment, but with the added financial and environmental benefits of using less energy. The firm said the new system uses less power than a hairdryer and, as it does not use compressed air, it can be moved easily from one production line to another, as no air hoses are in the way.

The system features a counter rotating blade fan that secures labels during application, and has a label range of one to six inches wide, and 0.5 inches to 13 inches long.
