Our can labeling machine can be used in can types
An aluminum can, sometimes erroneously referred to as a "tin can", is a single-use container for packaging made primarily of aluminum. It is commonly used for foods and drinks such as beer, baked beans and soup but also for products such as oil, chemicals, and other liquids.
A drink can (or beverage can) is a metal container designed to hold a fixed portion of liquid such as carbonated soft drinks, alcoholic drinks, fruit juices, teas, herbal teas, energy drinks, etc.
An oil can (oilcan or oiler) is a can that holds oil (usually motor oil) for lubricating machines. An oil can can also be used to fill oil-based lanterns. An occupation, referred to as an oiler, can use an oil can (among other tools) to lubricate machinery.
A steel can, tin can, tin, steel packaging, or can is a container for the distribution or storage of goods, made of thin metal. Many cans require opening by cutting the "end" open; others have removable covers. They can store a broad variety of contents: food, beverages, oil, chemicals, etc.
The automatic labeling machine our company manufactures is designed for can body. Have functions of automatic stop, counting, power saving. Suitable for bottles, beer cans, and other cylindrical containers.
We got a new can labeling machine! This will give us more flexibility in packaging specialty beers. With our printed cans, we had to order a certain number of cans at a time, which limited the amount of different beers we could package (because we can’t store an infinity of cans!). But this new machine allows us to bulk order blank black cans and labels separately! So now we can experiment with packaging different pub favorites for the general public! The cans come to us black, we fill them up with the beer of the day, cap and seam them, then slap the label on them.
What is a Can Labeling Machine?
A can labeling or printing machine can also be called the following depending on the type of work it performs and the container the machine can handle:
- Tin can labeling/printing machine or tin labeling/printing machine
- Jar labeling/printing machine
- Bottle labeling machine
They are machines designed to print and apply labels on various products, packages, or containers. They can adhere to many surface types such as aluminum, fiber drums, plastic, steel, and glass.
Since labels are greatly demanded in many situations, labeling and printing machines are incorporated into the operation of many companies with high product packaging volumes. Businesses having storage management systems for inventories also require the need for special labeling equipment. Another purpose of these machines is for compliance labeling as they are also integrated into the plant processes of equipment manufacturers.
Labeling and printing machines range from manual devices for simple dispensing of labels to high production machines allowing for a fully automated printing and application processes. In fact, automatic labeling machines are among the most common types of labelers for sale in the market as they do not need an operator to function. As for VKPAK’s labeling and printing machines, they all have automatic operations.
Major Components of a Can Labeling Machine
#1 Feeding Hopper
The feeding hopper plays an important part in the whole labeling process at it ensures the precise distribution of the label to the containers. It feeds the containers to the labeling station for labeling which happens continuously and systematically. Moreover, it prevents the containers from breaking and eliminates the need for manual loading of items to be labeled.
#2 Labeling Station
This station is composed of the labeling pad and labeling head which you can control for proper positioning to adjust to the size of the bottle being labeled.
#3 Touch Screen Control Panel
The control panel allows for systematic management of the labeling process. You can adjust or alter the settings for the production process using this. Moreover, the control panel also alerts the operator regarding any emergencies requiring immediate attention.
#4 Drive Mechanism
This mechanism has the motor, roller system, and conveyor to drive the entire labeling machine and assists it to move the components accordingly.
How Can Labeling Machines Work
All can labeling and printing machines basically work the same way. The initial stage of the labeling process starts with the products being fed to the labeling station via the feeding hopper. At the labeling station, the cap or container body is labeled as it is continuously moved by the conveyor.
For the Pressure Sensitive Labelers, the premade label is applied and sticks to the cap or the cylindrical container body while it rotates. On the other hand, the Optical Laser Printing Machine and Inject Printing Machine print on the containers using a laser or ink as they pass through the labeling station.
The labeled/printed containers will continue to move through the conveyor until they reach the end of the line. The machine will perform the labeling process for the rest of the containers unless you stop it.
