BLM series

Fully automatic labelling machine for labelling drums

All chemicals are subject to classification and labelling prior to being placed on the market and are often placed on the market in barrels and hobbocks of different sizes. This places increased demands on the flexibility of the labelling unit with regard to print data, multicolour printing and application height (labelling height).


Often several labels will be applied to the circumference of the drum (product label, hazardous goods label(s) and logistics label). The system can be equipped with several label dispensers and/or several printing and dispensing systems. Labelling can be carried out in continuous operation or at a standstill. Depending on the application and labelling requirements, the labelling system can also be placed at a drum labelling station. 


The height adjustment is carried out either manually by means of smooth-running spindles or fully automatically by means of actuators which move the label dispensers into position depending on the system recipe. 


For label transfer to the drum, either simple label applicators, vacuum belts or robot systems are used, which can process different label sizes with the appropriate special vacuum plate.

The label presence or the correctness of the print data is checked either by the use of stationary barcode scanners or camera systems.

Are you looking for the right cross-line automation software to solve your GHS requirements or the right partner to integrate your printing and dispensing systems into your ERP solution? - Under you will find a flexible and modular solution.

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.
