Labeller brings sweet smell of success to cosmetics company

Advanced Dynamics’ new bottle labelling equipment has helped one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of cosmetics and toiletries post an impressive 20 per cent productivity boost, following the installation of a Pack Leader PRO-625

Contract cosmetics manufacturer Nicholas James (UK) became one of the first companies in the country to take delivery of this innovative equipment and is delighted with its decision. Bradford-based Advanced Dynamics is the sole UK distributor of Pack Leader’s range of PRO labellers.

Nicholas James, which counts a major high-street chemist among its customers, chose the PRO-625 front and back label dispenser ahead of equipment from two of Advanced Dynamics’ competitors. The machine is currently operating at its facility in West Yorkshire on the company’s fragrances, insect repellent and deodorant sticks.

The PRO-625 is labelling around 10,000 of various-sized bottles a day for the manufacturer, but Nicholas James’ production and purchasing controller, Bob Twigg, knows that the machine has the capacity to cope with an even greater volume of products if needed.

He says: “It’s the first time we have used Advanced Dynamics and we were very impressed with both the quality and affordability of the PRO-625. We have seen output increase by around 20 per cent since they installed the equipment. It really is excellent kit which we know can do even more than what we are asking of it. The next time we are in the market for labellers, Advanced Dynamics is likely to be our first call.”

Fully automated

Aimed at a variety of sectors, including cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, homewares and food and drink, the PRO range of accurate and robust fully-automated label applicators can be integrated into a line for a variety of container sizes, cartons and bottle shapes, whether glass or plastic, and are extremely affordable.

They are built to the highest standards using quality materials, such as stainless steel and anodised aluminium alloys, are user friendly and can reliably label the full range of package configurations at speeds of up to 40 metres per minute.

As well as the PRO-625, the Pack Leader PRO range includes the PRO-516, ideal for high-speed labelling as it features twin label reel system, memory storage of settings and easy changeover features that guarantee high output and much improved up-time, the inline PRO-515 wrap around labelling machine, the PL521 horizontal wrap system for medical and cosmetic vial labelling and the compact ELF table-top entry-level versions.

Advanced Dynamics’ joint managing director, Malcolm Little, says: “The PRO equipment from Pack Leader is an eye-catching range of cutting-edge label applicators, ideally suited for industries such as cosmetics, which have very demanding standards.

“As the boost in production at Nicholas James (UK) testifies, our market-leading equipment can transform bottle labelling in this country and help companies save money, improve productivity and reduce waste.”

Advanced Dynamics is convinced that its range of new PRO Series label applicators offer cost-effective solutions to help companies like Nicholas James (UK) reap the benefit from investment in capital machinery, particularly crucial during the current tough economic times.
