Wet-section block for non-carbonated water
Well though-out block philosophy
The ErgoBloc LM promotes block technology decisively. How? It lives the block idea with such a great determination and beyond compare. The ErgoBloc LM does not only combine individual machines but it also is designed as a holistic system with one central unit each for the control system, the drive and the operation.

Benefits to you
With its dimensions of 18 x 12.5 metres, this machine requires 30 percent less space than the conventional block variants.
One operator for all machines
The block is designed as one unit in which all essential control and function elements are centrally combined. This way, just one operator can easily operate the entire ErgoBloc LM on his own.
From the servo drives to the electromagnetic and compressed-air free stretching systems: The topic energy efficiency goes all the way through the block just like a red thread. Especially ambitious savings goals can be realised with the Air Wizard air recycling upgrades.
Focus on the essentials
The ErgoBloc LM has been planned as integral machine and it is designed exactly for one defined application. This allows to go without many cost-intensive elements. Therefore, it only needs one central touch-screen for all functions and only requires one single labelling station.
Trouble-free continuous operation
Full power with no breaks: The labelling module automatically detects bottle gaps and does not apply glue or labels in this case so malfunctions through missing bottles are no topic at all.
The pre-defined option packages enable to adapt the block to special requirements and keep the costs for the commissioning time low at the same time.
