Label upgrade for Scotch whisky bottler
Makro Labelling UK has achieved its first order in the Scotch whisky industry, as part of a line upgrade for the independent Scotch whisky bottler Campbell Meyer, based in East Kilbride, Scotland, UK.
The Mak-2 machine will operate at 8,500 bph, applying body and back labels in both self adhesive and wet glue formats. The modular machine is being fitted with an electronic cam and the label station trolleys will be interchangeable. Apart from Campbell Meyer’s own products, the company also blends and bottles for third parties, so the flexible Mak-2 will be able to handle 500ml, 700ml, 750ml and one litre round glass and square bottles.
The machine is also designed so that a third wet glue labelling station can be added in the future to apply U-shape tax strip stamp labels. These are applied to the neck of the bottle on the labeller carousel and affixed onto the bottle to form the stamp.
