- Flexible - Integrates into multiple systems and prints on multiple printers across your business environment.
- Scalable - SENTINEL can grow with your business by enabling you to quickly and easily add printers to your existing network.

Knecht Mühle AG - Mr. Daniel Meier
The challenge was to implement a system in a very dusty environment that could withstand both the dust and, in winter, the low temperatures in the bottling hall. Thanks to the HR-InkJet-System a continuously perfect solution has been working for 4 years.
SFS intec AG - Mr. Rolf Locher
As a technology leader in the field of process-integrated, fully automated production of high-quality plastic parts, it is always our aim to serve our customers with ready-to-install products. If printing of the part or the packaging is required, we are dependent on specialists such as Wilux Print. This company has competently implemented our requirements for labelling using the direct printing process. Wilux has met the challenge by providing an individually tailored direct foil printer and has come up with an innovative solution. The competent and prompt service is particularly noteworthy.
Wick AG - Mr. Kurt Wick
The big challenge was to be able to apply our sausages to our products in a wrap-around label without wrinkles. WILUX fulfilled this task with bravour. We appreciate the reliable service, the quick and uncomplicated help, as well as the professional maintenance and expert troubleshooting of WILUX PRINT AG.
Naturex AG - Mr. Raphael Berger
The company WILUX PRINT AG has provided to us the optimum solution for front labelling for outer packaging with an innovative special machine construction on site on existing conveyor systems and this within minimal space conditions.
Pearlwater Mineralquellen AG - Mr. Christoph Franzen
We depend on our pallet labellers being ready for operation 6 days a week, 24 hours a day. Except for the change of consumables, everything must function autonomously. We appreciate the production reliability of 99% as well as the many years of supply chain experience of WILUX PRINT AG.
Lesa – Lataria Engiadinaisa SA - Mr. Beat Klöti
WILUX has supported us significantly with its many years of experience in wrap-around and cover labelling, as well as in the integration into existing conveyor and filling systems on site. Particularly noteworthy is also the professional maintenance as well as expert troubleshooting of WILUX.
Molkerei Fuchs AG - Mr. Bruno Schwab
We were faced with the great challenge of finding a solution that would provide our unfilled, square plastic milk bottles with a plastic label. WILUX PRINT AG mastered this task with their fast and uncomplicated way despite a difficult initial situation and initial difficulties.
Flück Fördertechnik AG - Mr. Peter Flück
We were confronted with the great challenge of first positioning heavy cartons and then labelling them cleanly on the non-straight edges on the top and side corners. WILUX, with their many years of supply chain experience, provided us with significant support and with their high quality standard, provided us with a solution that fully met all our requirements.
Romer’s Hausbäckerei AG - Mr. Markus Bamert
We have been working with WILUX for many years and are very satisfied in every aspect. Our individual products, dispatch and transport units are labelled or inscribed with WILUX systems. WILUX convinces with a very high level of quality, an optimal price-performance ratio and professional and forward-looking customer care.

HEINEKEN Switzerland AG - Mr. Giuseppe Gianguercio
WILUX has completely replaced a pallet labelling machine for us, which labels our pallets on both sides according to the SSCC standard, and successfully converted another pallet labelling system for bound pallets, which applies directly to the string during the binding process. For the pallet labelling system for tied pallets, WILUX also completely replaced the PLC control and the printing module for us. The biggest challenge here was to install the new printing module in the existing machine and to adapt it to the mechanical and electrical interfaces. For this purpose the machine's processes were reconstructed and programmed to the new PLC control system. We appreciate the extraordinary professional competence, the high quality standard as well as the perfect service and support of WILUX and can recommend the cooperation in every respect.
Perlen Packaging AG - Mr. Sebastian Schürmann

Eisberg AG - Mr. Pascal Koller
We contacted WILUX with the challenging task for labelling 2-part blister trays with a label from the front and back on the run, which should also be considered as a first-opening guarantee. With its many years of supply chain experience, WILUX has realised a high-quality labelling solution for us, with which the label is donated from the front and the supernatant is pressed during the further transport. The seal label could be donated from above in a much more elaborate process and applied by means of a pneumatic-mechanical pressure device in a 180° movement. WILUX has captured our needs and requirements professionally and competently and turned them into an optimal solution for us. We also particularly appreciate the impeccable service and support provided by WILUX.
Schweizer Salinen AG - Mr. Roger Siegenthaler
We were faced with the great challenge of having to replace simultaneously various hardware and software systems that were end of life. This involved several labelling systems for the labelling of cardboard boxes, pharmaceutical bags and Euro pallets. The labelling software/print data control also had to be completely renewed and installed. With WILUX, we evaluated a professional who implemented the entire project according to our specifications to our complete satisfaction. In addition to that, the perfect service and support, also during the time after the rollout, should be mentioned.
Emmi Schweiz AG - Mr. Fredy Günther

We consider this cooperation to be absolutely fair and can warmly recommend WILUX with its many years of supply chain experience.
EMS-CHEMIE AG - Mr. René Sonderegger
Among other things, we contacted WILUX with the task of building a special machinery, in which an existing labelling module of our LabelSet had to be converted from 4" to 6" within one week, including transport to WILUX and back. Due to the modular construction and WILUX's many years of experience in the field of special machinery construction, WILUX was able to meet this challenge on time and to our complete satisfaction. We appreciate WILUX's high quality standard and can warmly recommend the cooperation.

Hochstrasser AG Littau - Mr. Kevin Heer
Thanks to quality and taste Hochstrasser AG is known as a renowned coffee roasting company. 4 years ago WILUX helped us with a progressive conversion of an existing labeller from another supplier to optimise our processes and thus save costs. We appreciate WILUX's many years of experience in the field of product labelling and identification as well as the high quality service and support.
Belimo Automation AG - Mr. Ramon Guignard
WILUX supported us very successfully in integrating a pallet labelling system into an existing machine. The big challenge was to label EURO pallets and half EURO pallets with SSCC labels and to apply the labels at two different heights depending on the load height. In addition to the automatic pallet labelling system, we also have a remote system in the form of a table printer from which the labels are printed and applied manually to oversized pallets which are not moved over the automatic line. The print data for both systems are prepared by a higher-level control system and transferred to the respective printer at the right time. We appreciate the machine quality as well as the pleasant cooperation with WILUX and can warmly recommend them.
Steiner-Beck AG - Ms. Fabienne Köng
WILUX fully meets our high expectations in terms of processing and the availability of our labels. It should also be emphasised that a competent contact person is always available in the event of technical problems. We find the cooperation with WILUX highly pleasant and uncomplicated.
ISCADOR AG - Mr. Björn Stehle
In 2014 we purchased a WILUX printing and labelling system for labelling folding boxes. The filled boxes are placed manually on a vacuum tape and then labelled from above with a product label with barcode and a lot number and a 2D code is printed on the side with an HR inkjet system. In case of an invalid verification of the two printed codes, the product is ejected. On another section of the line, a transparent sealing label is applied to both ends of the box, which ensures the first opening guarantee. Two sensors check the successful application of the tamper-evidence guarantee and eject faulty sealed products. WILUX has mastered the high requirements and standards of the pharmaceutical industry with bravour and has also excellently complied with and implemented clean room regulations in order to be able to ensure and guarantee production and data security at all times.
hosberg AG - Ms. Geneviève Muther
hosberg AG has been the market leader in the marketing of organic eggs for many years. It is very important to us that our high-quality organic fresh eggs are labelled accordingly.

UFA AG - Mr. Urs Steiner
We have three WILUX PLS3100 printing and labelling systems for labelling our filled milk powder, premix and mineral feed bags. On all three systems, the bags are pre-filled, sewn, deposited and then labelled from above in a continuous flow. In addition to that, the PLS3100 offers us the possibility of printing labels and then winding them onto a roll, so that the pre-printed labels can be applied later by hand or fully automatically on a label dispenser. WILUX has understood excellently how to install high-quality printing and labelling systems which can be perfectly integrated into tight space conditions.
MFG Technik & Service GmbH - Mr. Hubert Lachner
Together with our labelling partner WILUX, we have successfully implemented complex projects in a wide variety of areas.
