Top-Bottom Labeling Systems
These versatile automatic labeling systems can label many kinds of products including clam-shells, books or magazines, bakery goods, meat & dairy products, and bottle caps and jars. Top only labelers feature a high tack rubber belt, while bottom labelers and top/bottom labelers feature the same high tack in-feed belt plus hugger belts to carry the bottle across the bottom labeling head. This allows better wipe down on products with recesses and smaller products to be labeled.

Wrap around equipment labeling systems are for round products only. Wraps for rectangular or oval products are applied with front and/or back labeling systems (See Front & Back Below). In this category we offer numerous choices including semi-automatic wrap labelers, vertical wrap labeling systems and horizontal machines. Horizontal wrap labelers are used when products are unstable such as very tall with small diameters. Wraps can be full wraps or partial wraps. With 3 roll wrap or extended vacuum belts we can also do front and back labeling of round bottles. Speeds range from 10 bottles/minute to 260 bottles/minute.
Front-Back Automatic Labeling Systems
Front and Back Labelers not only apply labels to one or two sides of
bottles or other products, but with added options can apply 2 panel, 3
panel, and 4 panel wraps to oval and rectangular products. Speeds can
range from 40 bottles/minute to over 200 bottles/minute depending on
product shape, number of panels, and accuracy requirements. We offer
labeling heads that can dispense at rates ranging from 90 feet/minute
up to 300 feet/minute.
Front-Back-Wrap Labeling Machinery
Front-Back-Wrap Labelers combine two functions on one machine. Capable of Labeling just like the Front-Back Labelers above, these machines are easily convertible to Round Product Wrap Labeling in less than 5 minutes. Great for contract packagers and those who need multiple labeling capabilities.
