Demo version of the new Adhesleeve technology for high-performance bottling lines.
PET bottle tests on a running conveyor loop – Hall 4-Stand n. B001
The Roll Fed labelling machine as simple as an ADHESIVE one!

Adhesleeve technology introduces in the market of Roll-Fed machines 2 major innovations
1ST INNOVATION - elimination of the use of the hot melt with the following advantages:
 environmental: absence of fumes produced by heating the hot melt (to around 150°C);
 sanitary: it is no longer necessary to utilise solvents to clean the label application cylinder (having eliminated the hot melt no residual glue is left to clean)
 ecological: the absence of hot melt makes the label free from any contamination, so 100% recyclable, together with the bottle and the cap.

2nd INNOVATION - the label cut is no longer effected by fixed cutting blades interacting with rotary ones, in this way several BIG PROBLEMS have been easily solved:
 Adjustments: no necessity to adjust the cutting unit for various film thicknesses, considerable changes in the ambient temperature, no worn out blades etc.
 Replacements: it takes only 10 minutes (at most) to replace the cutting devices without tools or adjustments! The life of the new cutting devices is much longer than the classical cutting system;
 Efficiency: 100% elimination of production stops, potentially due to imperfect label cut, film stretching with consequent reduction of its thickness, different film thicknesses due to an excessive quantity of paint on a reel, etc. The new cutting devices do not require any servicing or adjustment. Films with thicknesses different from standard ones can be used.
ADHESLEEVE uses film thicknesses lower than the films that are normally used on classic Roll-Fed labellers and allows a “reduction of the label costs”

Among PE’s customers using ADHESLEEVE technology: Conserve Italia, Fonti Spinone-Spumador, Oleificio Zucchi, Kemeco – in Italy; abroad – Cisowianka, Senoble, Marlafekas, Laiterie Soummam, Aje Group.

P.E. LABELLERS SPA - PACKOLOGY exhibition 8-11 June 2010 in Rimini - stand.045 hall A3

The application of self-adhesive labels has been highly progressing in the last few years.
Companies’ growing needs to apply brighter labels of greater value to their products push customers towards the adoption of this new technology.
Furthermore, self-adhesive labels offer undisputed operational and economic advantages, such as lower changeover and maintenance times.
For these reasons, P.E. has developed since quite a lot of time some of the most advanced self-adhesive labelling stations among those currently on the market.
The various models – 40 mt/min, 60 mt/min, 90 mt/min, 120 mt/min and 150 mt/min with patented drive head – feature a modular configuration allowing a better operational ergonomics.
The synchronization to the labeller carousel is fully automatic and very accurate, insomuch that, even during emergency stops, the containers being labelled, no rejection is produced in case of out-of-tolerance applications.
The need for adjustments to sensors and encoders has been completely eliminated and all the parameters can be adjusted from the control panel which allows to store up to 200 different labels.
Due to P.E.’s state-of-the-art technology and reliability in self-adhesive labelling, many customers of international stature have turned to P.E. to find solutions to their production issues.
P.E. can actually offer extremely flexible or sophisticated self-adhesive labelling machines suitable for speeds ranging from 2.000 bph to 60.000 bph. “No-Stop” versions, which eliminate line stops – featuring double labelling stations or automatic reel splicing – are also available.
MASTER labellers are furthermore prearranged for the installation of a centering system by means of cameras, according to capsule spots, notches, marks or glass weldings, allowing container orientation in definitely narrow spaces.
As on all the other models, changeovers are carried out quickly and without tools. (P.E. Labellers S.p.A.)
