Le Mac are suppliers of the linerless labelling system that is self-adhesive for trays of meats, ready meals, salads etc.
Linerless labels are an environmentally-friendly innovation: they do not use backing liner like traditional labels, which cannot be recycled and does not decompose in landfill.
The system itself is fully automatic and delivers significant efficiency gains over traditional pressure sensitive labelling machines or hand-application of carton sleeves.
It works with heavy gauge cardboard, film or paper labels in 8 formats (top, top & side, top & 2 sides, Full-wrap, C-Wrap, D-Wrap, Skin Packs and Slide Sleeve). It is suitable for stretch wrap trays, top seal trays and vacuum skin packs (with protrusions). To top it, all this can be run on the same machine without change parts.
The La Mac linerless systems currently used by many major Australian food manufacturers, and they are currently used on a range of Woolworths and Coles products.
Le Mac also offers digitally printed labels for small lot variants and flexographically printed labels for longer runs. Le Mac can also print a range of effects to convey different levels of branding from generic to premium, and on the digital press, designs can be changed easily without needing to purchase extra plates.
The Le Mac Australia Group will be showcasing the linerless labelling system along with other products at Stand K61 on Level 4.
