This system was specifically designed for the wine bottling industry. Two modes of operation are required in most wine labeling applications.
Modes of Operation:
Single Label Applications
Single labels (front or back) can be applied to various diameter or height wine bottles. Labels can be oriented specifically to physical characteristics, registration marks or existing graphics. One applicator required
Front & Back Label Applications
Front & back labeling will require front and back labels to be converted in alternating fashion on the same web. As the indexer rotates each wine bottle, the controller will monitor the product’s rotation and trigger the applicator to apply the labels 180 degrees opposite each other. One applicator required. Front & back labeling can also be accomplished with two applicators. The front labels would be converted on one roll with the back labels being the product rotation after the first label has been applied. Two applicators required
Cover labeling or re-labeling can be accomplished by sensing the original applied label and applying the new label over the original. The stepper driven indexer will provide very tight tolerance label placement within + / – 1/32” (some label materials and bottles may cause label placement tolerances to vary). One applicator required
Speeds are variable depending on bottle diameters and label lengths.
