  • Reliable and accurate process for a high-quality labelling

    The Hot Melt gluing system for wraparound labels ensures efficient and precise label application and contributes to a great looking finish.

    • Its robust carousel transmission and machine structure offer reliable operations.
    • An applicator equipped with guns applies the glue in spirals very precisely on the container
    • The gun never comes into direct contact with the container to avoid misalignments of the containers and ensuring uniform label pick-up
    • Gluing system for wraparound labels on bottles improves label adhesion by reducing the presence of impurities
    • When the label is wrapped around the container, the coating head in the magazine applies a thin strip of hot-melting glue at a temperature of 120-170°C along the label edge to ensure that the edges of the label adhere completely 


  • Cost-efficient and sustainable label application

    Optimised glue usage ensures accurate adhesive application and contributes to reduced operational costs.

    • The precise application of glue with reduced glue leakage and carbonization results in minimal glue waste.
      • No glue circulation within the system means there is no need to replace contaminated or degraded glue.
      • Precise glue application minimises energy consumption and reduces operating costs.


  • Flexible and user-friendly

    Hot Melt's straightforward design makes the machine very accessible and easy to use and maintain.

    • It can handle apply wraparound labels to both round containers with belt-driven platforms and irregularly shaped or orientated containers with servomotor-driven platforms
      • The set-up procedures for container changeovers are fast and simple, and all adjustments can be made via HMI.
      • The simple machine design reduces maintenance operations and allows shorter and more efficient cleaning times
      • With a compact footprint, the Hot Melt's station design allows the operator to control the entire labelling process.
      • The easy access to the labeller reduces workplace-related risks and improves safety conditions.
      • The machine can be installed in various configurations depending on the available space. In addition to the in-line configuration, the machine can be installed in parallel or alternative layouts.

  • How to increase the efficicency of your labellers?

    Open All ▼

  • Customise your labeller configuration

    • Icon labelling option1Conveyor:In line, in parallel with 3 star-wheels, in parallel with 4 star-wheels in "U" shape, "L" shape
    • Positive or negative spin
    • Tamper evident applicator
    • Label coding devices:Ink-jet, laser
    • Empty bottle pressurisation
    • Shrinking tunnel: For Roll On Shrink On (ROSO) labels

  • Improve your labeller flexibility

    • Icon-clockSMAR™ cutting system:Label's aesthetics and material savings are improved.
    • Label reel auto-splicing:Continuous film feeding system avoids labeller stoppage.
    • Motorized labelling station height adjustment:Labelling station position is defined from the Human Machine Interface for faster changeover time.
    • Adjustable feed screw:The feed screw position is adjusted to the bottle dimensions for maximum stability and pitch control.

  • Keep your top labelling quality

    • Icon_cogLabel detection:The labeller is stopped when a label remains on the vacuum drum.
    • Vision system:Bottles are correctly oriented before label application on a specific area at high speed.
    • Three channel distributor:The positive control and release of the label during application improve labelling quality.
    • Changeover storage cart:Customised parts are well ordered, easily located and picked out. 

  • Enhance your labelling efficiency

    • Icon_bottlesGlue fumes extractor:The elimination of the glue fumes increases the labelling station performances and keeps a cleaner production environment.
    • Guides for lightweight bottles:The bottles keep stable to maintain consistent efficiency by avoiding frequent labeller stoppages.
    • Cutting system Upgrade (ELAU): The higher tolerance to label imperfection allows better labelling efficiency.

  • Reduce your labeller maintenance

    • Icon_settingGlue filament extractor:Glue particles and vapours are removed to reduce vacuum drum cleaning.
    • Belt transmission:Only the belt needs to be replaced which reduces maintenance costs. The format changeovers managed from the operator panel are fast.
    • Automatic greasing of the vacuum drum:The automatic lubrication operations avoid labeller stoppage for maintenance.
    • Quick release platform:The platform design with simplified assembly reduces changeover times.
