Makro Labelling

UK producer and importer of wines Halewood International has installed a modular bottle labeller made by Italian company Makro Labelling.

The labelling machine is equipped with three stations and comes with plug and play removable labelling stations for both wet glue and self-adhesive label dress.

It can apply both wet glue and self-adhesive labels to roll-on-pilfer-proof (ROPP) closure sparkling wine and cork-and-wire champagne style bottles in sizes including 75cl, 1l and 1.5l.

According to Halewood, the newly installed machine has speeds up to 14,000 bottles per hour and will dress the Halewood’s wines with front, back and shoulder labels.

Makro Labelling UK managing director Richard Portman said the installed system offers features such as the Makro ‘Magic Star’ multiple format handling starwheel system and Universal scroll, which would save time and money for users.

"In this case we have built the machine to handle five different bottle formats with ten label dress variants, which need only a single scroll and two sets of ‘magic star’ starwheels to handle the lot," Portman said.

Previously, Halewood placed orders for three labelling machines for the Halewood Huyton factory and H&A at Chorley, UK.

The orders included a self-adhesive machine for the H&A operation, which handles thirteen miniature bottle types including glass and PET in a variety of shapes such as round, flask and square, applying body and back labels with speeds up to 200bpm.

According to Makro Lablling, this further acquisition by Halewood is the largest and fastest machine the company has installed in the UK to date.
