Application: Equipment for Labeling Glass Bottles

 

Industry: Food & Beverage Packaging & Labeling
Process: Labeling

A small and thin type Robo Cylinder® and a MEC controller have been adopted for labeling glass bottles for beverages.

When the bottle is placed on top of rollers, the rollers rotate in sync with the feeding of the label.

As the label is fed, it is transferred from the paper onto the bottle. The label is fixed by pressing down on it with Robo Cylinder®.

An Air cylinder was considered, but the equipment was motorized so that it could be used in places without compressed air.

Robo Cylinder® can use the same input/output circuit as an air cylinder, and as construction without a PLC was possible, the equipment was produced at a low price.
