The S150 is a fully automatic, self-adhesive labelling system for the application of paper and clear self-adhesive labels to a wide range of products including cylindrical, rectangular, square or oval containers, in glass, plastic or composite materials. The S150 range is designed for maximum versatility, offering the capability to label containers from 10mm dia. to 150mm dia. with minimal change parts.
The S150 has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of the international pharmaceutical industry and the requirements of all the industry’s regulatory bodies, including the FDA, but is equally suited to other industries where flexibility, high speed accuracy and reliability are pre-requisites.
A variable speed roller at the infeed spaces the containers entering the machine. Each individual container is detected at the labelling point as it passes a sensor, at which point the label feed is activated. The leading edge of the label is driven off the backing web at a linear speed that matches the container speed; this ensures smooth, accurate placement on the container surface. The container, gripped between an applicator drum and presser pad, is controlled as the label is pressed firmly in place, ensuring high registration accuracy.
