With a plug-and-label design the APS 2 applicators on the machine for self-adhesive labeling and the cold-glue hot-melt stations can be easily interchanged. The bottle table is downsized cutting make-ready times and facilitating handling parts changeover. The self-adhesive and cold-glue stations can be run simultaneously. Ideal for the wine and sparkling-wine industry the Solomodul can run at speeds to 1 containers/min.
