Often a big concern for small businesses starting out, doing short-run product manufacturing as they grow into their markets, is applying labels to bottles in a consistent manner - each label in the exact same position as the previous one, applied perfectly straight and without creases and bubbles, in short to make sure their product looks professional and alluring to potential consumers, to compete with the big corporations on the shelf who spend millions on their packaging. The answer is a food semi-automatic label application machine. This enables a small to medium producer to apply labels consistently and professionally to bottled products in a fraction of the time it can be done manually and with far fewer mistakes.
Bottle Matic Label Application Machines
The Bottle Matic Label Applicator brand is manufactured in the USA and offers machine options for applying labels to both cylindrical (bottle-shaped) objects as well as flat surfaces. The bottle applicator can handle bottles 5" to 6" in diameter and apply up to 1200 bottles per hour both front and back, the operator simply directing the action with a foot pedal and replacing the bottles as they're done. It even works with tapered bottles. These machines both peel the label off its backing and applies it to the product package and this brand also offers waste rewinder options.
