July’s machine of the month is an ALbelt C wrap-around labeller designed to label 16 ounce beer cans for a craft brewery in the United States. The solution was required to label a wide variety of beers cans (including seasonal beers) to resolve the problem of purchasing more costly and inflexible pre-printed cans. In response the labeller applies clear labels onto un-printed cans, maintaining the printed can appearance, whilst offering varied label design options that relate to seasonal and product demands.
The ALbelt C is equipped with an ALstep M labelling head and is capable of labelling 12, 16 and 22 ounce bottles or cans at speeds up to 60 products per/min, creating a totally flexible solution for a wide range of bottle and can requirements.
