MCL - Apply of front- and backside label

Onto large cylindrical and conical products

Well known and used for decades. The principles of the MCL, Modular Container Labeller, are used for side labelling or front and back side labelling of large oval, conical or cylindrical products, typically 2.5 - 20 liter containers.

The machine is often equipped with a brush handle lift system and as well as additional label dispensers or printers for print of colour code or barcode.

In some cases the MCL is also used in connection with side labelling of rectangular products, used as a double MCL in connection with front and back side labelling.
