RCA is the ideal semi-automatic label applicator for seasonal
producers who use cylindrical containers like bottles, jars,
where the label is applied on a flat side, please see the
The RCA is one
of the handiest semi-automatic bottle labelers
in the market. It is lightweight, portable and, for
bottles with one label each, it can output up to 1,600
per hour. Of course, it can do a lot more
than just bottles and wine. This label applicator is
good for any round / cylindrical container like jars, cans,
tins, and any produce like beer, oil, preserves etc.
It can also apply
two labels per container. This can
be done in two ways. The easiest is to have both sides
of your label printed alternatively on the same
roll. The machine will apply two labels at a time and
you will have to define the time step so that the two sit
exactly opposite each other on the container. If you
can't have both sides on the same roll, then each container
will have to pass twice through the machine.
On the second pass, a fibre-optic component will locate the
first label on the container and place the second exactly
opposite the first one.

The RCA can be
supplemented with an Intermec C4 printer

Other than round
containers, RCA can also handle some polygonal and conical
shapes. For all other shapes, please see the FCA.
