ACL 200 Composite Can Labelling Machine With Knives
The long tubes are fed into a hopper and an individual tube is then loaded onto a mandrel. This mandrel is then indexed through 90 degrees to the labelling station in time to meet a glued label.
After the label has been applied to the tube the mandrel indexes another 90 degrees to the cutting station where knives cut the labelled tube into the familiar individual can lengths.
The mandrel indexes another 90 degrees where the cut and labelled tubes are ejected from the machine. The mandrel indexes again to the first station for another tube to be loaded.
With 4 such mandrels the machine can cycle at up to 35 tubes (indexes) per minute.
The machine is complete with One Set (4 mandrels) to suit your diameter, with up to 7 Knife Units included.

The unlabelled tubes are placed in the tube guides that accept up to about 10 tubes. The operator places the unglued label on a feed table and depresses a hand valve. The tube is automatically loaded onto a mandrel, the label is taken automatically over precision glue rollers and via ‘pickers’ is delivered and applied to the plain tube – the tube is then cut. The cut, labelled tubes are then ejected from the machine and the process is repeated
An automatic sheet label feed
A stack of labels is placed on label platform. A line of vacuum suckers takes the top label and presents it to the in-feed rollers and the vacuum is released allowing the label to travel onto the wet rollers, over the pickers and onto the tube. The label platform is automatically raised to maintain a constant height under the suckers. ‘Fluffers’ blow air through the front of the label stack to ensure each label is separate.
This accepts up to 60 tubes which are automatically delivered to the ‘CL2’ making it a fully automatic machine.
A cardboard tube is loaded from a hopper into the machine, held firmly in place on a mandrel of similar diameter. A pre-printed label is fed into the machine either manually, or automatically. The label is coated with a precise amount of glue then presented to the rotating core to which it is applied. The core may be cut into several sections after which it is then ejected from the machine to be carried away on a conveyor. Waste rings from cut process are ejected separately. The labeled cores (tubes) then go onto to be capped or closed usually for various applications in the market place. These include luxury goods containers, food stuff containers and the original cores may be of sealed or breathable type construction.
