Custom Labeling Systems
CTM has manufactured a multitude of custom labeling systems. 

Custom Labeling System


Decorative Bottle LabelerThe system shown was designed to label a top shelf Bourbon Bottle. The end user was in pursuit of a specific look that required the application of five labels to each product. The bottle was gated into the labeling area where a leading edge label was applied. Front and back labels were applied in the second labeling station where the bottles were secured by the top hold down belt. A top tamper evident label was applied over the decorative cork top and wiped down the sides of the bottle neck. A complete wrap label was then wrapped around the bottle neck to secure and cover the trailing edges of the tamper evident label.

The tamper evident label and neck labels were applied using a proprietary tooling design developed specifically for this product. Labeling speeds were variable to 45 PPM.


Pail Labeling System
The CTM Pail Labeler is a heavy duty labeling system designed for use in industrial production environments where dependable, accurate and trouble free labeling of pails is required. Pail labelers are available with either 360 Series labelers or 3600 Printer Applicators. Fanfold label supply and roll fed label supply configurations are both available.

System Operation:
A Model 360 (apply only) or Model 3600 PA Series printer applicator is positioned "reels up" alongside the product conveyor and includes an air cylinder operated, tilt-out style, o-ring carrier grid to "wipe on" apply labels by contact. Attached to the labeler is an air cylinder operated, short travel, tilt-out vacuum grid, approx. 15" in length, which incorporates several variable speed, stepper motor driven o-ring belts to assist and carry the feed of long, soft labels; muffin fans are used for vacuum generation to hold the dry side of the label against the o-rings to impart travel. A firm felt wiper impresser attached at the end of the grid is to contact the surface of the product to press on the label for initial attachment; the label is attached as it is pulled off the grid by the advancing product. The motorized o-rings are moving during label dispense and are stopped when the leading edge of the label reaches under the apex of the felt wiper; a photoelectric label sensor determines the stopping position and is consistent even with varying lengths of labels.

Closely spaced, parallel handle guide rails (for handles in vertical position) are mounted to just clear the top of each product to maintain in-line orientation keeping the products from rotating out of position during travel to the hold-down belt stabilizer assembly.
