Clear Automation: Label applicator for cosmetic bottles

Clear Automation’s new 100 parts/min. label applicator system is designed to apply labels to liquid cosmetic bottles.

The system features a Fanuc robot, Herma labeler and a graphical touch-screen HMI. A label is applied, a batch code is laser etched and the batch code is vision inspected for readability and accuracy.  Bottles travel to the cell along a conveyor and are fed into the cell by a servo-driven screw that spreads them to match the pitch of a linear indexer. A robot picks them and lays them horizontally onto the indexer. Bottles that fail the inspection are ejected into a bin. Good bottles are ejected onto a conveyor to travel downstream to packaging.
