July’s machine of the month is an ALline E system built for a producer of cosmetics and toiletries. The machine delivers an accurate and quality application of front and back labels to oval shampoo and soap bottles and is placed in the customer’s filling line, operating at 60 bottles per minute.
The solution is equipped with a timing screw gapping system, coupled with a twin gripper positioning unit and driven by a synchronized servo-motor to manage the oval shape of the bottles. This combination allows the system to orient each product, and present it correctly aligned to the two ALritma label heads achieving a very tight label positioning tolerance.
