Inline 6000 Front/Back & Neck Labeling System

Item: IL6000FBN

The Challenge

A regional contract packager needed a labeling system to effectively apply clear labels to the front and back of a variety of container shapes at speeds up to 160 containers per minute. Also required was the ability to apply a label to the neck of these containers. Previously, the customer experienced problems such as skewed label placement and bubbles with a competitive machine.

The Solution

Label-Aire’s custom solution was to modify its rugged Inline Series 6000 open-frame labeling system to accommodate a total of three 3115 Wipe-On applicators. One applicator was mounted near the infeed side of the system for neck labeling. The remaining two applicators were placed on opposite sides of the 14 foot long conveyor for front/back labeling. A chain aligner was also mounted near the infeed side to align the oval-shaped containers prior to reaching the top trap hold down unit. Custom layered wipe-down squeegees were designed to provide superior clear label placement. Label-Aire’s Inline Series 6000 Front/Back & Neck Labeling System was the right machine for the customer. It provided accurate and bubble-free clear label placement reliably and at higher speeds.
