Semi-automatic tube labelling

For precise labelling, products with an accessible cavity are manually placed on a format mandrel. By actuating the foot switch or the optionally available 2-hand control, the labelling process is triggered, the product is rotated, and the label is applied precisely to the circumference of the product. 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 PLC.
Optionally, the labels can be aligned using a welding seam or other product features (such as opening tabs or lid recesses for tubes). A pneumatic ejection makes the removal process superfluous and blows the well labelled products into a collection box.







All models can be extended by modules such as

• Printing unit

• Vision inspection (print presence, print data control,
     presence, alignment)

• Product rejection

• Serialisation (hardware and software)

• Audit Trail (21 CFR Part 11)


Vials, tubes, ampoules, cartridges, pens, syringe , cartridges, glue pens, pens, crucibles, batteries, cans, etc.
