Bucket Labeling Machine

Summary

A bucket is typically a watertight, vertical cylinder or truncated cone or square, with an open top and a flat bottom, attached to a semicircular carrying handle called the bail.

A bucket is usually an open-top container. In contrast, a pail can have a top or lid and is a shipping container. In common usage, the two terms are often used interchangeably.

Our bucket labeler is the industry’s most technologically advanced pail labeling machine. It is specifically designed to accurately and efficiently apply front or front & back labels to large industrial round and square buckets, pails, jugs, and tubs. VKPAK’s unique approach uses wipe gates, air manipulation and servo-managed belt systems to guarantee consistent, wrinkle-free application. For wrapping buckets, pails, tubs, and jugs with handles, an optional orientation module orients the handles to the label for precision every time.

Many industries rely on buckets to store and transport their materials and products. No matter which type of business you run, it’s important that your bucket labeling system is reliable, quick, and precise.

The best way to ensure your products are labeled correctly is with an adaptable system. VKPAK labelers are modular in design and can be integrated with a variety of accessories for different applications. VKPAK automation labelers can be easily adjusted to your exact container’s size, hold it precisely in place as a label adheres. The bucket labeler is a fast system that can accommodate a variety of different label types, such as wrap-around labels or flat side labels for rectangular buckets.

Depending on your current facility, our Bucket labeling system can be a standalone system or integrated into a larger production line. VKPAK’s engineering capabilities are strong and we pride ourselves on the ability to engineer an automation solution designed for your production needs.

Bucket VS Pail

Bucket and pail both refer to a cylindrical open container with a handle, made of metal or plastic. It is usually used to transport water or other fluids. The difference between bucket and pail is mostly semantic variations and people’s perceptions. The main difference between bucket and pail is that bucket is more common in usage than pail.

5 Gallon Pail Labeling Machine
This labeling system features our heavy-duty printer applicator and a secondary pneumatic cylinder impresser. Pails are manually loaded with the handles riding on the guide rails. Products are aligned by a guide rail and driven by a lug on the conveyor. The system prints and applies a label to the side of the pail. The secondary pneumatic cylinder impresses the remainder of the label around the side of the pail.

It adopts servo motor, achieved closed...
This machine is designed for small pail or bucket labeling (full or empty) and empty 5 gallon pails. The pail labeler includes “handle orientation” which allows the label to be placed in a predictable location when being conveyed. Packaging equipment sales has a pressure sensitive labeler to offer for every pressure sensitive labeling application. If you need to label any type of product we have the labeling equipment.

Pail labelers are complete labeling systems. They include the labeler, bale/handle orientation, sensors and controls in one easy to use package. The labeling heads are servo-driven and synchronized with the encoded conveyor drive. These pail labelers are super easy to operate, efficient and accurate in applying clear and opaque pressure sensitive labels. These labelers can be programmed to hold up to 50 recipes that are easily recalled through a simple to use operator touch screen. Variables such as speed, product/label lengths and timing are automatically adjusted. The sensors are fixed position and do not require being moved, unlike most other labelers.

How a Pail Labeler works:

The roll of labels is put on to an indexing reel. The label strip is unwound from the roll and fed through series of self-tensioning idler arms to the peel plate and then to a take-up reel (this creates a web). The labeler is powered up and indexed so it is ready to perform the labeling process. The first indexed label is moved over the peel plate that is shaped in a point, the backing material when indexed over the point of the peel plate releases the label. The label is now “Flagged” meaning sticking out past the peel plate ready for the self-adhesive back of the label to contact the Pail. The Pail is loaded on the conveyor with the bail hung on the “handle orientating” device. The Pail travels on the conveyor to the labeling station which has the “Flagged” label waiting to contact it. When the Pail comes in contact with the waiting label, the label is indexed to match the speed of the Pail and the self-adhesive glue on the back of the label sticks to the package. After it passes through the labeling station a pair od wipe gates apply pressure to the label and the label sticks to the Pail.How a pail labeler works: the roll of labels is put on to an indexing reel.
