Semi automatic labelling

bottles | jars | glasses

Basic concept of the semi-automatic wrap-around labelling system:​

The TNC-DS model series is used to label cylindrical products, such as honey jars in the example, on the circumference. To do this, the product is placed manually in the product turning station. The labelling process is triggered by actuating the foot switch or the optionally available 2-hand operation. The product is rotated and the label is applied precisely to the circumference of the label. As standard, the model is available with different roll widths (100 to 300 mm) and different label dispensers (60 to 250 mm) or printing and dispensing systems. Optionally, the labels can be aligned using a weld or other product features.


If front and back labels are on one label roll, the system can also place several labels on the circumference. The distance between the labels can be adjusted in the system format.

Depending on the operating personnel, the performance of this model series is between 10 and 15 products/min.

For large batches or high-consumption products, we recommend fully automatic labelling solutions. Our labelling machine VRM is a fully automatic system for labelling round and square products such as cans, jars, vials and much more.

More details:

The tool-less adjustment enables the shortest possible changeover times for batch and product changes. Different application methods ensure optimum labelling results on your products. Extensions to apply sealing labels to your products (e.g. in U or L form) are available for all our labelling machines.


We offer our label automation tool LabelsPlatform4 for the automatic provision and administration of possible print data.
