Sidel Matrix SL70

The highly modular roll-fed labelling technology

Labelling PET containers, especially for soft drinks and water, primarily uses wraparound roll-fed technology, applying either paper or plastic labels with hot glue. Sidel Roll-fed labelling solutions deliver the flexibility needed to match all your needs.


Sidel Matrix SL70 for the following liquid types:



Labelling main carousselThe success of roll-fed technology lies partly in the plastic label, which has physical and practical qualities that make it very attractive to consumers and beneficial for beverages producers. In addition to a high gloss finish, roll-fed labels are waterproof and consequently less likely to be affected by adverse storage conditions. Furthermore, they are able to meet a fast-growing market trend that calls for efficient, high-speed machines able to handle lightweight containers with extremely thin labels.

  • Flexible to meet your needs

    The very efficient roll-fed SL70 labeller can reach output up to 60,000 bottles per hour, which is 40% more output compared to previous machine generations

    • Versatile system to meet individual production needs in terms of bottle shape and speed
    • Unique ability to manage positive and negative spins
    • Can be installed in various layouts and easily reconfigure


  • Precise and controlled label handling

    The SL70 labelling station delivers precise handling and application for containers of any shape.

    • Separate vacuum and pneumatic distribution manifolds ensure precise label handling at all speeds
    • Lobed vacuum drum profile makes sure labels have optimal tension for high-quality results
    • The geometric design of the glue roller and scraper ensures glue application is continually uniform and highly controllable
    • No brush, sponges or other applicator tools are required
    • Replaceable and upgradeable surface plates increase autonomy and wear resistance


  • Quick format changeovers

    The SL70 features 30% faster changeover times for containers of different shapes and dimensions.

    • Changeovers in 25 minutes by only one operator
    • Different pitch and diameter options are available with the modular construction of the carousel
    • Advanced ergonomic design allows for easy access to the main modules and reduces the risk of injury
    • Easy adjustments to the bottle and label handling process can be made via the HMI (Human Machine Interface).
    • A larger range of format configurations is possible due to motorised "gearing" changes according to different format recipes


  • Reduced maintenance

    The SL70 maximises operator safety, uptime and productivity by drastically reducing maintenance time.

    • 40% less downtime is needed for maintenance
    • Open structure for easy cleaning and maintenance
    • Direct drive motorisation eliminates the need for lubrication points
    • No below-the-table maintenance is necessary
    • Main modules are easily replaceable


  • Sustainable and cost efficient operations

    The SL70 cuts operating costs and minimises energy consumption.

    • Process thinner labels
    • Handles extremely lightweight bottles
    • Requires less glue with an average of 5 grams per thousand bottles
    • Uses up to 40% less power

  • 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.
