Ketan Wrap Around Labelers
In Action!
Ketan manufactures various types of pressure sensitive wrap around labelers which cover many different round container categories in multiple industries. The three major groups of wrap labeling systems which Ketan provides are 3 Roll Wrap Labelers, Wrap Belt Driven Labeling Machines and Horizontal Wrap Labelers.

LCT Series Three Roll Wrap Around Labelers
The three roll wrap labeling systems are the most versatile labelers for round products that are stable enough to stand on a conveyance system. The Ketan LCT series of three roll wrap around labelers offer increased label placement accuracy and the ability to orientate products with handles or other identifiable features. Front and back labeling of round products with alternating labels on the label supply roll is also one of the features the LCT wrap labeler offers.

The three roll wrap module traps the product and rotates it against a roller thus stabilizing the product during the label application process. This method dramatically increases label placement accuracy versus traditional wrap belt driven labelers and offers much more versatility to place labels onto products that may not be a perfect cylinder.

LCW Series Belt Driven Wrap Labeler
Wrap belt driven labelers are the most traditional method for applying labels to round products. The product is conveyed between a rotating belt and pressure pad in which it continues to move forward while rotating. At the beginning of the rotation, a label is dispensed and follows the product during rotation in order to wrap the label around the cylinder. The advantage to belt driven wrap labelers is product throughput due to the continous movement. The disadvantage could be label placement accuracy issues (skew) that may arise due to products that are not perfect cylinders. Vacuum belts and different types of rubber or foam can be used to help with more difficult round products. In some cases, it may be neccesary to utilize the LCT three roll wrap labeler method. The Ketan LCW series of belt driven wrap labeling systems can be equipped with an optional three roll module in order to optimize the systems capabilities.

LCU Series Horizontal Wrap Around Labeling Systems
Horizontal wrap labeling machines or unstable round product wrap labelers utilize a roller bed type of conveyor in order to lay smaller diameter products on their side and apply labels around the circumference. Typical products for the horizonatal wrap labelers are ampoules, vials, chapstick and other small diameter cylindrical plastic or glass containers. Horizontal wrap labeling systems can be hand fed with an infeed chute or fully automated with infeed and discharge magazines
