The machine can apply up to four labels onto canisters, bottles, flacons and vials, and other rectangular-sectioned and oval-sectioned product containers. It can apply one or two wrap-around labels onto cylindrical product containers.
The machine design makes it possible to install various modules depending on the objective:
This screen makes it possible to control and set all machine modules and to switch between templates to accommodate different container types. There are two synchronized control panels to ensure more convenience for the operator.
The upper conveyor grips product containers during the labelling process. It is synchronized with the conveyor belt thanks to the step drive.
This unit holds and rotates cylindrical or cone-shaped product containers to apply wrap-round labels. It evens out container surface to ensure proper label alignment. Synchronized with the applicator thanks to the step drive.
The applicator dispenses labels at the exact moment, with the exact speed, and the exact tape tension. Label height is up to 300 mm depending on the applicator model.
The positioning device positions curved product containers before they are gripped by the upper hold-down conveyor.
The applicator is adjustable and lockable, with five mobility degrees.
The frame ensures the overall sturdiness of the structure making it possible to easily install all modules necessary to deliver the desired result.
Designed for productions with a great variety in product range and a high standard of label application quality.
The machine has been designed for the following product container types:
With two-sided labelling, labels are continuously positioned and applied onto product containers, without any intervals.
In order to demonstrate the machine precision a product container would typically be labelled twice after the commissioning. The two labels would typically overlap with only a 0.1 to 0.3 mm deviation.
Product containers come with imperfections. Variations of container parameters add to errors no matter what the machine precision. However, the minimum error of the labeller itself will help to keep the total error down to 1 mm even when product container quality is insufficient.
The machine design ensures that the label is properly pressed and smoothed until full adhesion to the surface. Extra clear labels remain “invisible”, with no air pockets or moiré patterns. The gentle yet elastic rollers make it possible to apply embossed labels with no air pockets even inside raised-surface letters.
Thanks to the roller labelling system design the side surface of product containers is evened out during labelling. Alignment errors are thus kept to the very minimum making less than 0.3 mm for quality product containers.
The five-position applicator support comes with rough adjustment system in order to quickly move the applicator to the needed position against the container feed. After the adjustment, the applicator can be locked in the chosen position.
Nor the conveyor belt speed neither the speed of any of the machine modules does not depend on the load, the electrical voltage, or any other external factors: no in-process adjustment is needed. Once the machine is properly set it is good to work for the next 10 years: the pre-set speeds and delay times will not “drift away”.
The primary objective of the control system and its interface is to ensure convenient operation and readjustment.
The control panel is ready for work in just half a second after the power is on. All settings are available in just two or three touches of the screen, the interface responsiveness is comparable to an iPhone device. The integrated help system is here to report any parameter irregularities or a line emergency. Our technology safeguards you against firmware failures.
The template system drastically reduces readjustment time when switching between different product types. As many as 96 templates are available to the operator with a single touch of the screen.
During readjustment the operator only needs to adjust the mechanic settings of the modules to accommodate the geometrical parameters of the container type and to adjust the sensor position height.
