In the packaging industry there are a number of various container types which range in size and shape (ie: flat/square, oval and round/cylindrical) Each of these fomats can be labeled automatically when choosing the correct labeling system. The most common label types are pressure sensitive, cold glue, hot glue and sleeving.
Primary suppliers include, but are not limited to: Aesus, Pack Leader, and Herma.
The Semi Automatic Wrap Labeler can we positioned on a table top, bench or mobile stand. These compact units are more convenient when space is a contributing factor. The Semi Automatic Wrap Labeler is mainly found in entry level packaging systems. The hand wheels provide simple adjustments and enable quick setup and easy changeovers.
An Automatic Wrap Around Labeler applies pressure sensitive labels to round bottles or containers. These labelers can be hand loaded or integrated into a packaging line. Wrap Labelers are generally compact, cost effective units that can reach speeds of up to 100bpm. They can also be custom configured to label more complicated applications, such as tapered bottles.
Front and Back Labelers utilize two label heads, one to apply a pressure sensitive label to the front of a container and one to apply the back label. Our Front and Back Labelers align the bottle and position it properly prior to labeling as they pass through side alignment chains as well as a top hold down conveyor.
3 Panel or 4 Panel Labelers can be configured to wrap one label around 3 sides of a square container or completely wrap around a 4 sided container. Most commonly, 3 Panel Labelers use one label and thus only utilizing one label head to apply the label. This style of application is also commonly referred to as “barn door” style labeling.
Top Labelers utilize a label head on a vertical plane. With this design, these units can sucessfully label the top, bottom or both top and bottom of a container.
Vertical Wrap Labelers utilize label heads on a vertical plane. Typically these labelers are used when labeling clam shells and double as tamper evident seals.
Shrink labeling is an application which uses machinery referred to as sleevers to open a poly film and apply it overtop a container which is then passed under a shrink tunnel that applies heat (infrared or steam) to shrink the film to the containers shape. These systems are generally used for hard to label or odd shaped containers. They can also help with tamper evidence in some cases, which in turn saves money and reduces further automation.
