The wraparound labelling is a very common application in the packaging world, and for this ALTECH has developed a line of automatic systems able to adapt and apply wraparound labels on any cylindrical product. This labelling system, called ALline C, is extremely flexible and, thanks to its modularity, it can be customized in such a way that it assumes multiple configurations capable of satisfying the most diverse labelling requirements. A typical example of wraparound application we find it in the labelling of salamis and sausage with a cylindrical shape. In this case, the system is supplied with a conveyor with horizontal idle rollers, with an ALritma M labelling head and with a rolling device, thanks to which the dispensed label is perfectly applied onto the salami surface. The rolling device is easily adjustable in height thanks to a handwheel to allow the system to handle different sizes of products and labels. Overall, the format change is extremely simple to perform. The system can also be equipped with a micro inkjet marker for printing repetitive data, such as expiration dates. The device is adapted on the labeling head thanks to a special support for third-party printing units. Salamis are labeled at a rate of 80 / min. for small formats, and at approximately half this speed for larger formats.
ALTECH is one of the major European producers of self-adhesive label applicators, with a wide range of systems for the automatic labelling of articles of any kind: for decoration, coding and identification of products and materials in general.
