Ravenwood linerless labels are a wonder of the modern age. The vast number of food packaging plants around the world that employ our labels and applicators is testament that linerless is a leading technology where sustainability is the number one driver.
1. The environment will love you for it
Siliconised label liner is waste as it can’t be recycled or burned. World consumption of pressure sensitive labels is running at 1.4 million tons annually of which less than 12% is recycled. Consequently, that amounts to a whopping 616,000 tons of liner waste material that ends up in landfill. But the good news is, this is now completely avoidable.
2. Your safety and that of your peers could count on it
Label liner can sometimes end up on the print room floor and with its silicone coating, it can leave you open to trips and falls. About 8 million people a year in the United States alone are victims to slips and falls – that’s 15% of all workplace accidents. Avoid these sticky situations by opting for linerless.
3. You’ll get the job done quicker
Linerless labels allow for more labels per roll, resulting in longer runs and increased uptime. Quick changeovers mean that line speeds are not compromised and you’ll spend less time cleaning up liner waste. So therefore, an increase in production efficiency is a major advantage.
4. You’ll stop wasting money
Linerless reels weigh up to 40% less and take up 40% less space than those with carrier backing paper. So the good news is, you’ll profit from decreased shipping and storage costs. And by eliminating the liner means avoiding landfill disposal costs too and the headache that tends to go with it.
5. Innovation is our passion
Our diverse range of linerless labels suit a wide variety of tray styles for food packaging applications. And what’s more, we keep on innovating. We’ve introduced 3 new groundbreaking products to our product portfolio – all born in our very own Inventing Shed. The Slideable label is a linerless label like no other, it slides like a cardboard sleeve yet comes supplied on a roll. We’ve also adopted this technology for our Slideable Ready Meal Linerless Label which is now emerging as the label of choice for straight-to-oven ready meals. Skin Pack Labelling is also a fairly new concept. This style of packaging is great for extending the shelf life of food. And the good news is, our linerless labels can adhere to even the most bulky of products.
6. Our range of Nobac applicators won’t disappoint
Our Nobac machines enable a full range of labelling formats suited to a vast expanse of product requirements. By utilising board, paper and synthetic substrates, our applicators offer enhanced flexibility. And by printing at the point of application, wasted printed labels on changeovers will be minimised. Furthermore, in addition to sleeving fixed weight products, there is the option of linking to weigh scales for variable weight products in addition to check weighing.
7. We’ve gone viral
