The 4VAL labelling system is designed to apply both clear and paper self-adhesive labels to a range of rigid cylindrical containers. GMP design and robust construction ensures efficient operation. Infinitely variable speed control allows labelling in excess of 200 containers per minute.

The well proven 4VAL container handling system is specifically designed for handling unstable containers e.g. ampoules, vials, syringes and cartridges.


Typically, the containers to be labelled are supplied in trays which can be manually loaded at the infeed of the machine with labelled products being automatically reloaded onto empty trays at the outfeed.

Each individual container is detected at the labelling point as it passes beneath 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 which 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 entire label is pressed firmly in place, ensuring high registration accuracy.
