WRAP-AROUND OVERLAPPING LABELS
Download the PDF brochure...

Wrap-around overlapping labels are in widespread use to add abrasion and shock resistance to trayed vials. Unfortunately this label configuration inhibits proper label and adhesive removal on HURST LabelStripper machines as it does not allow labels to ‘skirt’ as they are incrementally turned inside-out. Skirting allows stress relieved labels to clear bottom LabelStripper tooling for optimal label and adhesive removal. The simple solution to preparing wrap-around overlapping labels for LabelStripper removal is to create a vertical slit in the label resulting in two opposing edges.

LabelSlitters are 100% low pressure air controlled for operator and product safety.
In operation;

  • Operator loads vials in track
  • The three-way valve button is actuated
  • Vials, under controlled
    pressure and speed
    pass underneath a
    resilient slitter blade
LabelSlitters are a simple low cost way to utilize the label and adhesive removing capability of HURST LabelStripper machines. LabelSlitters are custom made in two channel and five channel models for vials from 2ml to 100ml.
