Applying self-adhesive labels perfectly:  precise labelling.


From the roll onto the bottle:  the HEUFT TORNADO S applies particularly decorative, self-adhesive body, collar, back and neck ring labels precisely.  The self-adhesive labeller, especially developed for an output of up to 48,000 bottles per hour, is impressive due to its well thought-out, easy to clean construction, its long-lasting, almost maintenance-free components, its simple operation and its remarkable precision.  Integrated inspection modules provide additional benefits.  As the HEUFT TORNADO S flex the machine with servo technology carries out a fine adjustment of the bottles with millimetre accuracy for maximum labelling quality – and particularly easy and fast brand changes.





Self-adhesive labelling

Applying labels exactly:  precise full container dress.


Decorative, high-quality and clean:  self-adhesive labels emphasise the exquisiteness of the final product and provide maximum flexibility and cleanliness when being applied.  Especially when the HEUFT TORNADO S is used for this.  It is not only first choice for the noble no label look.  It applies self-adhesive body, collar, back and neck ring labels with a perfect and close fit. The bottles are fed into the machine in a single lane if the bottle stop, which stops the bottle flow in the case of a malfunction, is unlocked.  An infeed worm ensures that the correct distance is kept between the individual containers in the course of this.  An infeed starwheel takes them over and transfers them to the machine carousel.  The labels are applied directly from the roll here.  They are peeled off at the dispensing plate for this and placed on the passing bottle exactly.  In the meantime this is firmly clamped – namely in the middle between the rotating platform and the centring bell.  Consequently nothing can slip around and the self-adhesive labels go straight there where they belong.






Label check

More than just labelling:  direct presence check.


Double-checking, examining and verifying:  the HEUFT TORNADO Scan do more than "just" apply labels.  It also checks the results of its work during the same work process.  The presence of the labels is checked using sensors.  This direct quality assurance can be extended by numerous other checking and inspecting functions upon request.



Fast brand changes

Changing simply:  adapting without tools.


Uncomplicated, time-saving and reliable:  the HEUFT TORNADO Snot only keeps time and personnel requirements extremely low during running operation.  Brand and program changes are also dealt with fast and easily:  no tools whatsoever are required in order to replace the change parts.


The vertical adjustment of the machine head is carried out just as automatically as the correct positioning of the sensors for checking the label presence.  This saves human resources and reduces unproductive downtimes to a minimum.




Central lubrication

Greasing automatically:  minimum maintenance.


Central, automatic and economical:  the correct amount of grease is applied to all the moving parts of the labelling machine so that everything always runs like clockwork.  The integrated central lubrication system greases the main bearings and the rotary gears for the bottle platform.  This ensures the durability of all the components sustainably.  Complex maintenance work can therefore be dispensed with.


Fault rejection

Preventing recalls:  the reliable rejection of faulty containers.


Fast, careful and accurate:  highest precision when detecting faults is only effective if the products in question are also removed afterwards.  The single-segment and multi-segment rejection systems of the HEUFT rejector series deal with this both precisely and carefully.





Optional additional functions

Making even more possible:  extensions to the range of functions.


Labelling machines with their modular design based on the HEUFTSPECTRUM TX can be extended at any time.  Thus the range of functions of the HEUFT TORNADO S can be optionally expanded with further functions for optimising and checking the labelling and product quality:

  • Servo technology changes the machine into the HEUFT TORNADO S flex.  It then scores points with even more flexibility.  Because its rotating cam is no longer activated mechanically but electronically with servo motors.  This makes it programmable according to the brand so that brand changes can be dealt with fast and easily.  In addition, this flex technology, together with precise camera technology, achieves a fine adjustment of the bottles with millimetre accuracy for even more precision when applying labels.
  • Camera-based modules check the position, fit, alignment as well as the brand purity of the labels.  The HEUFT vio OCR verifies the best before dates and barcodes which have been applied.
  • Special detection units check the fill height and internal pressure.
  • The bottle burst detection records burst glass bottles in the infeed, stops the machine and protects it against contamination due to glass splinters.
  • A special collection table prevents the accumulation of containers in the outfeed.
  • Special sensors check the presence and the position of the closures.  The logo detection identifies non-brand lids.
  • The HEUFT sonic checks the tightness of metal lids and crown corks.
