Reel Fed Labelling

A Reel-fed OPP Labelling Machine is a versatile machine that offers various advantages:

  • Long period of autonomy
  • Large capacity label reels minimise operator workload
  • Precise label placement guaranteed by positive container positioning via centring bells and centering plates
  • Low hot glue consumption
  • Short changeover times in case of container or label changes

Reel fed labellers are suitable for wrap-around labels and cylindrical or shaped containers, and the most important feature of our Reel fed labelling machines is that they can reach a speed of 1,200 BPM with a single labelling station, and use Nordson hot glue applicators.

This is an important advantage in comparison with competing technologies.

  • The film traction roller is controlled by an independent servo-motor which adjusts the film feeding speed in accordance with the label's pitch (spot or other reference).
  • On our machine, the label is completely cut on the cutting drum before being transferred to the bottle by means of the vacuum drum.
  • The label takes on its final vertical and horizontal position on the cutting drum. The label is transferred to the vacuum drum without any slipping movement.
  • The label constantly and permanently covers the same vacuum drum sector.
  • All sliding movements have been eliminated and the vital parts of the vacuum transfer drum are always protected by the label presence, avoiding the problem of glue residuals dirtying. A very thin layer of glue is used. The glue consumption is about 500 gr. every 100,000 bottles.

Oriented Poly Propylene (OPP) film is now widely used when labelling high-volume PET containers in applications such as filling water and soft drinks.
