Labeling Machine

Bottles on a conveyor run through a labelling mechanism that applies a label to the bottle. Even spacing of the bottles on the conveyor is not required and the conveyor can slow down, speed up, or stop at any time.

Machine Objectives:

  • Accurately apply labels to bottles in motion
  • Allow for variable conveyor speed
  • Allow for inconsistent distance between bottles
  • Pull label web through dispenser
  • Smooth, consistent labelling at all speeds

Motion Control Requirements:

  • Synchronization to conveyor axis
  • Electronic gearbox funtion
  • Registration control
  • High torque to overcome high friction
  • High resolution

Application Solution:

This application requires a motion controller that accept signals from the encoder on the conveyor and returns appropriate control commands to the encoder. A servo system provides the torque and speed to overcome the friction of the dispensing head and the inertia of the large roll of labels. A photosensor monitors the position of the bottles on the conveyor and gives the feedback to the controller.
