The SLRs apply stretch sleeve labels in a rotary architecture with a carousel equipped with different labeling stations (the number of stations depends on the speed to be reached), with both full body and partial sleeves. The machine’s architecture also allows the application of Super Stretch labels.
The bottles (or any other container) to be labeled are inserted, by means of a timing screw, into the starwheel synchronized with the rotating carousel of the machine.
The rotary carousel is equipped with a series of labeling stations, each essentially consisting of:
- sleeve expanders
- sleeve gripper and pre-stretching
- sleeve positioning grippers
- bottle holding and lifting plate
