What is Labeling Machine?

Labeling machine, also known as a labeller, is a device that sticks rolls of self-adhesive paper labels (paper or metal foil) on PCBs, products or specified packages. Industrial labeling machines are an integral part of modern packaging.

How Does the Labeling Machine Work?

Boxes, bags or bottles are transported to the labeling section of the labeling machine at a constant speed on a conveyor belt and collected sequentially.

Mechanical fixtures separate the boxes by a fixed distance and push the boxes in the direction of the conveyor belt.

The mechanical system of the labeling machine includes a drive wheel, a labeling wheel, and a scroll. The drive wheel intermittently drags the label tape to move, the label tape is pulled out from the reel, and at the same time passes through the labeling wheel, the labeling wheel will press the label tape on the packaging box.

The open-loop displacement control is used in the design of the reel to maintain the tension of the label tape. Because the labels on the tape are closely connected to each other, the tape must be continuously started and stopped. 

The label is applied to the case with the applicator wheel moving at the same speed as the case. When the conveyor belt reaches a certain position, the label belt drive wheel will accelerate to a speed matching the conveyor belt, and after the label is attached, it will decelerate to a stop.

Since the label tape may slip, it has a registration mark on it to ensure that each label is placed correctly. The registration mark is read by a sensor, and during the tape deceleration phase, the drive wheels are repositioned to correct for any mispositioning on the tape.

Simply, the entire labeling process is as follows:

Release Product —> Product Delivery —> Product Correction —> Product Inspection —> Labeling —> Collect Labeled Products

What is Labeling Machine Used for? 

According to different labeling functions, it can be divided into flat labeling machine, double side labeling machine, side labeling machine and circular labeling machine.

Flat Label Applicator

The flat labeling machine realizes labeling and filming on the upper plane and upper curved surface of the workpiece, such as boxes, books, plastic shells, etc. There are two methods of rolling and sucking, and the selection is mainly based on efficiency, accuracy and bubble requirements.

The plane labeling machine can complete automatic labeling on both sides of the front and back, and is suitable for automatic labeling on both sides and the circumference of round bottles of various flat and square products in the food, daily chemical, pharmaceutical and other light industries.

Double Side Sticker Labeling Machine

The double side labeling machine can automatically attach self-adhesive labels and films on the side plane, side large arc and square peripheral of the product surface, such as the labeling of round bottles and flat bottles. The automatic bottle labeling machine is widely used in food, toys, daily chemicals, electronics, medicine, hardware, plastic, printing and other industries.

Side Labeling Machine

The side labeling machine has a wide range of application space in the market. It is widely used in cosmetics, daily chemicals, electronics, medicine, plastics and other industries. The equipment can adapt to the single or two side of flat bottles, round bottles and square bottles of different sizes.

Circumferential Labeling Machine

Circumferential labeling machine is suitable for labeling on the circumference of round bottle objects. It can do single label and double label, and the distance between the front and back double labels can be flexibly adjusted, such as gel water round bottles and food round cans. This type of labeling machine is widely used in cosmetics, food, medicine, disinfectant and other industries.

How to Operate Labeling Machine?

Labeling machines can be divided into semi-automatic and fully automatic types. The main difference is whether manual operation is required.

The automatic labeling machine does not require manual labeling, and only needs to put the product on the conveyor line.

In addition, before starting the machine, we need to adjust the labeling speed and labeling position on the touch screen, and then put the product on the conveyor line to try the labeling effect. Keep debugging the labeling parameters, until the desired labeling effect is obtained.

Different from the automatic labeling machine, manual assistance is required to complete the labeling action of the semi automatic label applicator. After placing the product on the fixed labeling position, the desktop semi-automatic labeling machine needs to manually press the labeling handle again, and the handle drives the rotation of the label to stick the label on the product, then the adsorption of a label is completed.
