To label plastic or glass bottles, powerful and highly precise labeling systems are needed. Flat, oval, cylindrical – a wide range of formats must be labeled, whether in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries or in the production of cosmetics. In the beverage industry especially, applying labels is no easy task: Despite having traveled through a drying system, the bottles are often not just moist but practically wet.
For many high-volume consumer products or small-format products, high speeds and throughputs need to be achieved. This requires high-performance systems. Often it is also necessary to align the labels, for instance to visually match the position of a wrap-around label to the position of an additional lid label. Our labeling systems perfectly align glass and plastic bottles so that labels are accurately applied. If necessary, NPACK systems can utilize a special form of centering to ensure that two-sided labels are precisely positioned as the products pass by: The product is additionally fixed and centered during the labeling process itself.
NPACK labeling systems can be equipped with multiple applicators depending on the application requirements, for instance to apply labels on the front, the back and the neck. NPACK also offers special applicators for rotary systems. Their particularly narrow design means they can be easily integrated into nearly any existing system.
NPACK manufactures a wide variety of labeling equipment to automatically place and secure most label types onto a wide assortment of container types. NPACK labeling machines utilize the latest technologies to achieve the highest speeds and most accurately labeled bottles on the market. Three different styles of labeling systems are available: Pressure Sensitive Labelers, Hot Melt Glue Labelers, and Sleeve Labelers. Machinery can range from high speed sleeve labeling system down to single head bench top labelers for low speed labeling.
