AM Labels launches new automatic bottle applicator

AM Labels has added to its portfolio with the new LabelPack COMPACT WA automatic bottle label applicator.

The system has been designed to apply labels directly onto jars, bottles and cans. AM Labels explained it can apply labels to up to 100 cylindrical products a minute that, on average, have a product diameter of 80mm and require a label length of 180mm.

The LabelPack automatic bottle label applicator benefits from a 2,000mm-long product transport conveyor belt, which can be supplied in two standard widths, either 100mm or 200mm. It also features a 140mm-wide labelling head and a 500mm-long wrap around belt. Wider wrap around belts are available for applying labels to taller cylindrical items.

The solution comes with a PLC controller and 7.1-inch colour touchscreen. AM Labels added that when the transflective product sensor detects the presence of a bottle on the conveyor, it applies the label on the product at the correct time, while the adjustable side rails accommodate different sized bottles.

Additional options can also be ordered, including a conveyor belt encoder to synchronise the speed of all moving parts, product separators and thermal or inkjet coding units, and different width labelling heads. A version is also available with twin labelling heads for two-sided labelling.

Brendon Bass, sales and marketing manager at AM Labels, said, “The new bottle applicator is the perfect solution for companies that are looking to automate their processes to ensure consistency with their finished products. What’s more, with the capability to apply up to 100 labels a minute, the COMPACT WA can save businesses a significant amount of time too.”
