VRM series

Labelling machine for wrap around labelling

Basic concept of the system for bottle labelling and can labelling:

With the help of the fully automatic VRM labelling machine, different cylindrical or square products can be labelled quickly and precisely on the circumference - wrap-around labelling. The machine is therefore used in many industries ranging from pharmaceuticals to food and cosmetics. The VRM series is suitable for bottle labelling, can labelling, vial labelling or comparable containers such as jars or bottles. Several different formats can be covered simultaneously with one model.

The VRM-DS labeling system includes a 3-roll turning station and is used for a capacity of up to 60 products per minute. It is characterised by the highest labelling accuracy and can optionally align the containers by means of a weld seam, print mark or another feature before labelling (target labelling). The VRM-RB labelling system is used for larger quantities of up to 250 products per minute. With our label dispenser RAPID we guarantee the highest labelling accuracy in the range from +-0.2 mm to +- 0.5 mm. For labelling small batches or smaller batches we recommend our semi-automatic labelling machine TNC-DS for wrap-around labelling.

Like all labelling systems from our company, this model has a modular design and can be expanded at any time. The advantages such as low set-up costs, high availability and multiple use in different production lines are obvious. The adaptation to the different products takes place by simple adjustment of the machine components and is possible without tools. 

Depending on the intended use, requirements and industry, we build our labellers in various designs, whereby we always make use of our extensive component library in order to use our modular system concept. Our labelling machines from the FM model series represent a combination or alternative solution for applying one or two side labels to shaped bottles such as shampoo bottles, small canisters, spray bottles on both sides in addition to round products. 

Add-on modules:

The labeling machines can be expanded as required with label printing systems such as thermal transfer printing systems, thermal inkjet devices (TIJ), continuous inkjet systems (CIJ) or hot stamping devices. Optional vision systems guarantee quality criteria such as presence, correctness of print data, label placement on your products and make complaints right from the start.

Product examples:

The VRM labelling solution can be used to label a wide variety of products such as bottles, vials, jars, small buckets, cans, cups, deodorant rollers, jars or comparable round or square products.

Important for wrap-around labelling of cans, bottles, vials and other round or square products:

  • High cycle rates for high-consumption products: Our high-performance labelling systems can also be used without any problems in production lines for high-consumption or small-format products.

  • Precise labelling and dispensing accuracy: Even with products with a large diameter that are provided with a long label, there must be no spiral offset during the labelling process.

  • Modular expandability: Our labeling systems are modularly expandable and can also be retrofitted with various options such as a serialization or coding unit.

  • Various fields of application: Bottle labelling, can labelling, vial labelling.

Another labelling machine for cylindrical products:

Semi-automatic labelling machine for wrap-around labelling

Are you looking for a solution for labelling small to medium-sized batches? The semi-automatic labeling machine TNC-DS is ideally suited for wrap-around labeling of cylindrical products. 


Cylindrical products such as honey jars are manually placed in the product turning station and then automatically labelled on the circumference.

Fully automatic labelling machine for side and wrap-around labelling of shaped bottles

With the FM labeller, both shaped bottles and cylindrical products can be labelled all round and on the sides. This can be easily implemented by adding a wrap-around module to the system. The labeller can be quickly adapted to other product formats by adjusting the machine components.
