Minebea Intec has launched a new hygienic weigh price labeller specifically designed for the meat, fish, dairy, fruit and vegetable markets.
It is a manual weigh price labeller best suited to low volume and products not suitable for automatic labelling. Its consistent hygienic design is evident in its stainless steel construction making it particularly suitable for the superior hygiene requirements of the food industry.

The WPL-S combines ease of maintenance with high configurability. Customers can choose from a wide variety of screens, printers, scales, scanners, indicators and software possibilities.

Hygienic labelling solutions, configured to the customers exact requirements
The labeller offers a range of features, including field-to-fork traceability for legal compliance, integration with other hardware and open source software, and automated reporting. The system is able to interface with higher level systems and provides internationally recognised BarTender label design software.

Colin Maher, Minebea Intec country manager, UK, Ireland and Russia, and originator of the product development was the first to market the product in the UK, said,”We recognised the demand in the food industry for a superior labelling product in combination with our renowned Minebea Intec weighing technology. Now more and more customers are relying on the WPL-S as a flexible solution for their very specific requirements.”

The weigh price labeller is for a variety of purposes including calculation of price based on weight, calculation of best by date based on product, packaging, fresh or frozen and calculation of cooking time based on product, size and weight. The WPL-S will initially be introduced in selected countries.
