NRA series

Fully automatic bespoke machine for the application of neck rings on KEG barrels

Marking a reusable container with variable data has so far been a difficult undertaking not only in the food and beverage sector. With our innovative neck ring applicator system it is now possible to mark your products or brands with a high-quality print and additional variable data.

As far as the actual label design and artwork is concerned, there are no limits to the imagination. This can refer either to the highlighting of your brand or your product. Variable data such as beverage type, filling date, expiry date, batch coding or a promotion code can be printed directly in the system before the neck ring is applied around the keg fitting. Metal, plastic and wooden barrels can be processed.

Thanks to the modular system concept, the unit can be easily integrated into your existing production environment. A possibly existing free conveyor line can be integrated into the plant or can also be realized by us. 

Are you looking for the right line automation software or the right partner to integrate your label printer into your ERP solution? - Under you will find a flexible and modular solution.

Further labelling machines for the labelling of KEG

Semi-automatic labelling machine for banding KEG

You would like to apply one or more labels to the circumference of KEGs or other cylindrical containers?

With the help of the semi-automatic labeler TNC-GG, KEGs can be labeled according to the labeling requirements. Instead of using labels "die-cut to size", continuous material from the roll can be processed alternatively. Depending on the product size, the material is cut in the machine.
