The "Accutrak" Rotary
labeling system is designed to handle a wide variety
of product and label combinations.
The containers are transferred onto the labeling systems
conveyor. A gating device controls the infeed of the products
to the timing screw. From the timing screw the products
are transferred through center guides into pucks mounted
on the rotary table. The pucks capture the bottom of the
product while top hold down cones capture the top. The
rotation of the product while on the rotary base is controlled
by internal cams. A wide variety of tooling and cam packages
are available to handle almost any labeling application.
The container is controlled as it passes the label applicators.
Once the product has been labeled, it is transferred to
outfeed center guides and then to an outfeed conveyor.
With future versatility in mind, this machine has the ability
to handle round, and square shaped containers. With the
installation of a wrap station, the system will apply full
or partial wrap around labels. The rotary base has the
ability to mount a spotting station and lugged pucks. This
will allow for product orienting should it ever be needed.
