How does a labeling machine work?

In the development of today's automation equipment, the production of various industries has embarked on the road of mechanization, automation and intelligence. Those laborious and backward manual labeling have long been ignored. The labeling machine on the contrary can not only operate automatically, but also has high work efficiency and can ensure the consistency of labeling effect.


An automatic labeling machine is a device that can attach rolls of paper or metal labels to designated packaging containers or products. The glue behind the label comes with glue and will be regularly arranged on the glossy paper. The automatic peeling label mechanism on the automatic labeling machine can automatically peel off the label.


The labeling machine can complete various operations such as plane labeling, one-sided or multi-sided labeling of packaged products, cylindrical labeling, partial or full coverage of cylindrical pasting, concave and corner pasting and other operations.


The automatic labeling machine can be equipped with a printer or an inkjet printer on the labeling head, which can print the production date, batch number and inkjet barcode on the label. Printing production date, batch number, barcode and other information on the product before or after labeling.


In the working process of the automatic labeling machine, the boxes are initially fed into the labeling machine on the conveyor belt at a fixed speed.


The equipment fixtures separate the boxes by a fixed distance and push the boxes forward in the direction of the conveyor. The mechanical system of the labeling machine includes a drive wheel, a labeling wheel and a reel. The drive wheel intermittently drags the tape to move, and the tape is pulled from the roll. At the same time, the label wheel will press the label tape on the box through the label wheel. The reel adopts open loop displacement control to maintain the tension of the label tape.


Since the labels are tightly attached to each other on the label belt, the label belt must be started and stopped continuously, and the labels will attach to the case as the label wheel moves at the same speed as the case. When the conveyor belt reaches a specific position, the drive pulley of the label belt will accelerate to a speed matching the conveyor belt.


When the label is applied, it slows to a stop. Because the labels may slide, there is a registration mark on the labels to ensure that each label is placed correctly. The positioning marks are read by sensors. During the tape deceleration phase, the drive pulley will reposition itself to correct any mispositioning on the tape.
