FM series

Fully automatic labeling machine for side labeling and all-round labeling

Basic concept of the system for side and all-round labeling:

The basic concept of the labeling machine is the double-sided labeling and side labeling of shaped bottles without the use of format sets. The adaptation to the respective product is done by simply adjusting the machine components. The associated advantages are short set-up times, high availability and multiple use in different production lines. For an exact placement accuracy of the labels with the side labeling, the shaped bottles become exact on the transport route  aligned. Label formats up to 250mm high and cycle rates up to 250 labels per minute are possible. This means that a wide range of products can be covered effortlessly. Small production quantities can be labeled most efficiently with semi-automatic labeling solutions. The TNC-DS models are suitable for this  for all-round labeling and TNC-F for side labeling.  

The fully automatic labeler FM is suitable for the precise labeling of canisters, shaped bottles, bottles, vials, jars and many other cylindrical products.

The basic machine is used for side labeling of shaped bottles. This can be done either on one or both sides. With some bottle closures, additional labeling from above is even an option. An all-round module is available as an extension of the system in order to be able to process cylindrical products in addition to the actual molded bottles. The module is available either as a 3-roller turning station or as a lateral rotating belt (for higher performance ranges) or as a combination of the variants. An additional dispenser is not usually required here.

Thanks to the use of high-quality materials, the labellers are robust and reliable and can be used in multi-shift operations without any problems. 

Additional modules:

The labeling system can be expanded 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 the presence and correctness of print data, label placement and guarantee that complaints are a cause for concern right from the start.

Product examples:

With the FM model, countless products can be labeled on the side and all around. Examples: bottles, small canisters, long neck bottles, vials, jars, small buckets, cans, mugs, roll-on deodorants, etc.

Important for side labeling:

  • Powerful labeler: With a cycle rate of up to 250 labels per minute, the system guarantees fast throughput. Therefore, it is suitable for high-consumption as well as small products.

  • Labeling accuracy: A high level of labeling accuracy is extremely important for side labeling. Due to the exact product alignment on the transport route, our systems achieve exact accuracy when placing the label.

  • User-friendly conversions: The adaptation to the respective product can be done by simply adjusting the machine components. The labeling machine is characterized by quick retooling and the use of the system for a wide range of products.

Application example:

As a partner of well-known manufacturers in a wide variety of industries such as  We have already implemented countless projects from pharmaceuticals, chemicals, agrochemicals to automatives.  An application example of the FM labeling machine can be found here .

Semi-automatic labeling machine for side labeling of shaped bottles

The semi-automatic labeling machine TNC-F was developed for side labeling of small batches. The product is placed in the system by hand. As soon as the 2-hand operation is activated, the labeller starts to pick up the product in both format jaws and sets the product in rotation to apply the front and back labels.
