Machine to labeling oval tapered bottle? Race, Primera, other?

Recommended Posts

So we are looking to get a labeling machine for a bottle that is oval and tapered "Philadelphia flask" very similar to a Bullet bourbon bottle but it also tapers.

I checked on a Race labeling machine since they get decent review on here, but it seemed expensive given it was all manual. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frk84bXt4Vc&feature=youtu.be

The other option appears to be a Primera AP550 https://www.primera.com/equipment/label-applicators/ap550-flat-surface-label-applicator.html

We also have a round bottle for another product we want to label. The Race could do both but the Primera could not. Any other labeling machines people recommend?

I use a similar round bottle which is smaller at the bottom, couldn't find any semi automatic labeler <5K USD that can work with that. In the end I bought a 500 dollar manual labeler, that works fine. Do remember that you can't have a label that goes around (almost) the whole bottle, but you'll be fine with a conventional front and rear label.

For square bottles I'm going to buy the AP550, at the moment I apply them by hand.

What is the information on your manual labeled?

The one I have is only available in the EU, but an almost identical one is sold in the US for almost exactly the same price. I think it's called the Zap Labeler. Just Google "site:adiforums.com manual labeler" and you should find a suitable product. The roller on the front of the machine (nearest to you) should be adjustable, left side should be set a bit further out for a bottle that's smaller at the bottom (which goes on the right side, so the top of the bottle is pointing to the left).
