Labeler for pails and cans

Fully automatic labeling machine for labeling buckets and cans

The systems of the VEE model series are ideal for labeling medium-sized containers such as buckets, paint cans and canisters in all sectors such as food, chemicals, paints and varnishes - regardless of whether they are oval, round or rectangular plastic or metal containers. Depending on customer requirements, the products can be aligned before the labeling process and plastic or metal handles can be brought into the position required for labelling. Optionally, the labeling system can be expanded with additional labeling stations in order to apply a lid label if necessary.

We recommend the VEE-2S model for labeling on both sides. If it is a wrap-around label, our VEE-2DS model is used. A combination of both systems is possible without any problems.

On request, we can also supply a lid sealing unit (DVS) as an accessory, which presses on the lids that have already been placed before the labeling process.

Fully automatic labelling of rectangular and oval buckets

VEE-2S - Fully automatic labeling of rectangular and oval buckets

VEE 2DS -  Fully automatic labeling of cylindrical buckets with handle alignment and handle erection

The model was developed to label plastic buckets with plastic handles on the conical circumference. Due to the design with 2 roller prisms, the buckets are aligned in the first station in order to lift the handles at the corresponding position using a handle guide and to initiate the labeling process.


The system can either be equipped with a label dispenser from the RAPID series or with a printing and dispensing unit.

VEE-2DS - labeling process

In this application, the ZEBRA OEM thermal transfer printing system ZE500-4 was installed. The print data management was carried out with the label design and automation software LabelsPlatform  implements and offers the operator and the customer uniform label management and maximum user-friendliness.


As in this application example, an automatically triggered barcode scanner can confirm the presence of the label or the correctness of the data. In order to facilitate cleaning work, all openings in the system remain automatically closed when labeling is deselected or the system is switched off.
