Small Bottle Labeling Machine

Small bottles, as the name implies, refer to bottles with a smaller capacity size(also known as a vial). Small bottles are often used for store medication as liquids, powders or capsules, such as: drugs, essential oils, CBD oils, eye drops, reagents, etc. Small bottle labeling machine is the labeling machine equipment for small bottles.

There are no clear boundaries on how many milliliters of bottles below can be called small bottles, so we recommend small bottle labeling machine to customers mainly consider whether the bottle can run on the conveyor belt, if the bottle can run vertically on the conveyor belt, we will recommend the use of vertical labeling machine; for most small bottles can not run on the conveyor belt we recommend the use of horizontal labeling machine.

Below we list the typical small bottle labeling machines:

Horizontal Small Bottle Labeling Machine(Wrap-around labeling)

This machine is suitable for labeling sticker on cylinder which are hard to stand up. The horizontal transmission and labeling can help to improve labeling accuracy and working efficiency. This machine can be equipped with a date coder which can be used to code production date and production number.

The labeling machine is suitable for oral liquid / solid gum / battery / small bottle can’t stand on conveyor with self-adhesive labels, optional for date printer and bottle unscrambler.

  • Widely applicable to food, medicine, daily chemical and other industries.
  • Suitable for small round bottles that can’t stand on their own feet,etc.
  • Advanced touch human-computer interface which is easy to operation.
  • Bottle turntable and date/QR code printer is optional.
  • Best after-sale service,with one year warranty, life-long maintenance.


1) Control system: PLC control system, with stable operation and extremely low failure rate.

2) Operation system: touch screen, directly visual interface easy operation, with Chinese and English language, also rich with help function and fault display function.

3) Paste transparent labels without foaming, self-adhesive labels without wrinkles.

4) Conveying method is horizontal roller inclined conveying and feeding.

5) Machine and spare parts all use material 304 stainless steel and anodized senior aluminum alloy,with high corrosion resistance and never rust.

Vertical round bottle self-adhesive labeling machine is designed to achieve rationalized production goals. The labeling process is automated, the operation is simple, the production speed is fast, and the labeling position is uniform, beautiful and neat whether self-adhesive labels are transparent or opaque, the labeling effect is always satisfactory. This labeling machine has strong adaptability to bottles. Stepless adjustment can be made to the production capacity according to the specifications and characteristics of bottles and label paper. It is suitable for labeling circular containers in the pharmaceutical, chemical, food and other industries. This automatic labeling system is ideal for cylindrical container with diameter from 30 mm – 100 mm. (above size could be customized)

Here’s how works:

Filled bottles enter the machine via a conveyor belt and are separated so that there is a proper space between each bottle to allow for label application. Using photoelectric detection, the printing mechanism works in concert with the conveyor belt to automatically print the appropriate label. It’s then peeled off the paper smoothly and pasted on the bottle. A final belt flattens the label, ensuring proper affixation. Finally, the bottles are released from the machine to move onto the next automated step in your factory line.


1. The machine adopts stainless steel and aluminum alloy material, durable.

2. The whole machine adopts imported servo control system, make the machine running on the stable and high speed.

3. Advanced affinity touch human-machine interface, easy operation, complete function, has the rich online help function.

4. Use of the world’s famous brands imported electrical components, ensure that the machine is stable, reliable.

5. The belt conveyor, stable, reliable guarantee the delivery of materials.

6. Conveying and automatic labeling speed synchronous tracking, make the adjustment is more quick and easy operation

7. Automatic sensor detection, to have any label and without the automatic stop and alarm automatic detection function, prevent leakage and wast.

8. Before and after connection line, also have optional receiving platform, is advantageous for the finished product collection, sorting and packing.

9. Optional configuration (ribbon printer) can print production date and batch number online, reduce the bottle packaging
process, improve production efficient.

Usage Instruction

1. Make sure the bottle sensor and label sensor are working.

2. Adjust the bottle label speed, roller speed, conveyor speed to a rather medium speed. Labelling speed is adjusted on the touchscreen, the other two are adjusted by physical knobs.

3. Set the selection time delay properly by observing how long the bottle takes get to the rolling station after it’s detected, usually it’s around 0.5 second. This setting influenced by the conveyor speed, if the conveyor speed is very slow, this will be longer.

4. Next is the out of the delay, usually this delay time is a little bit ahead of the selection time delay, because you want the label to just start dispensing before the clamping action is nearly complete.

5. Then the scaling time, this is how much time the roller will be rolling on the bottle, it’s always greater than the out of delay, otherwise you will find when the roller is rolling with no label coming out. If the bottle takes 1 second to finish labeling and rolling, and the out of delay is 0.5 second, then for the best efficiency, this one will be 1.5 second.

6. The delay stop mark, this is usually set to 0.5 second, if you find it sticks out too much and create wrinkle on the bottle, then you should decrease it.

7. Time interval between, make sure to change scaling time if you set this one other than 0. The scaling time is usually doubled if you want to stick two labels on.
