Everything You Need To Know About Wrap-Around Label Machines

When you need to label your round product containers quickly and with minimal expense, your best option is likely going to be a wrap-around label machine. Faster and less costly than shrink wrap labels, wrap-around labels are often the most economical way to get product information onto your containers.

Why Should You Use Wrap-Around Labels?

Wrap-around labels are simpler and more cost-effective than other labeling systems. Unlike shrink wrap labels, which require precise heat and expensive materials, wrap-around labels are adhered directly to your product, allowing the label to be more durable. And thanks to recent advances in technology, most wrap labels can even be recycled along with the container they’re placed on, so consumers won’t have to remove the label before they put the item in their bin.

Another advantage to wrap-around labels is the use of BOPP (biaxially-oriented polypropylene). This material comes in a wide variety of colors and finishes and can be opaque or transparent. It’s also resistant to water, humidity, and extreme temperatures.

Wrap-Around Label Machines

While there are several variations of wrap-around label machines, the basic system remains the same. Your round container enters the labeling machine by passing through a pair of conveyor belts. As one belt peels your label off of its backing, the other belt rotates your container, pressing it firmly against the exposed adhesive. With the pressure between these two belts, the label becomes fully adhered before it passes out of the labeler.

There are a number of ways that you can customize your label machine to your specific needs. Your system can be adapted for containers of different volumes and sizes, as well as a variety of label sizes, up to and including full wraps.
