Rotary Pressure-Sensitive Labelers



Pressure Sensitive
Performance and versatility are equally important factors when it comes to rotary labeling systems.  With that mind, Gernep has developped the Soluta Rotary Pressure Sensitive Labeler Series to apply pressure-sensitive labels to almost any shape or size of bottles reliably.


In many cases, the slightly higher cost of Pressure Sensitive Labels (compared to cut & stack labels) is offset by the low price of label size parts, quick changeovers, and because no cleaning is required. Rotary Pressure Sensitive Labelers also work with different materials (paper and clear plastic) and unlimited graphic options such as shape, size, and finish.


Gernep uses servo-driven label applicators and perfectly integrates them to the main control of the Soluta Rotary Pressure Sensitive Labeler. The PLC memorizes all parameters for quick format changeovers.


  • Universal label sensor (clear or opaque labels)
  • Independent label applicators
  • Up to 8 label applicators on 1 frame
  • Modular system depending of needs
  • Programmable servo motors
  • Easy positioning of the labels by 4/5-way setting
  • Label positions can be saved
  • Intelligent label management
  • One-to-one label rolls vs waste paper
  • Redundant / Zero downtime mode


  • Low cost of label format parts
  • Shorter changeover times
  • Very short cleaning time
  • Shorter cleaning and servicing times
  • Innovative, exclusive, label designs feasible
  • Processing of No-Label-Look labels
  • Allow water-resistant plastic labels
  • Possibility of combining with other modules
  • Customized infeed and outfeed conveyors

For pressure-sensitive labels

Rotary Pressure Sensitive Labeler

Gernep has developed the Soluta Rotary Labeler Series to apply pressure-sensitive labels to almost any shape of bottles or products. The latest design features a round frame, allowing better access to the label applicators and enhanced safety for the operators.


The Gernep Soluta Rotary Pressure Sensitive Labeler comes in different configurations to apply PS labels to various glass, PET, plastic, and metal containers with up to 8 label applicators. It offers maximum versatility for manufacturers of beverages, foods, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics.


The Soluta Rotary Pressure Sensitive Labeler is available with:

  • Herma Label Applicators
  • Servo-driven bottle plates
  • Bottle Orientation (with cameras, sensors, or mechanical)
  • Multiple Label Application and Non-Stop Operation
  • Label inspection and rejection of faulty bottles
  • Serialization & Traceability

Fully automatic plastic cup labeling

 The technology of this innovative cup labeling system has evolved from practice. This system’s heart is the pressure sensitive lalebling (from the roll) station, functionally supplemented by an automatic destacking and stacking station. 




Continuous labeling of single to multi-piece contoured is finally possible. The money and effort saved by minimizing stock keeping are eminent since production can also occur “just in time” if required.

Fully automatic cup supply, destacking, labeling, stacking, and discharge combined into one compact and powerful unit

Non-stop function with two dispensers per label, free-standing loop pre-roller, or free-standing automatic splicer for uninterrupted continuous operation (optional)

Label material fed by PLC-controlled servo drive for maximum labeling accuracy

Dispenser parameter adjustments directly on the device or via the machine touch panel

Robust, torsion-resistant tripod for label dispenser with adjusting scales for precise & repeatable dispenser/label positioning

Reliable detection of label materials including transparent & shiny label material

Various clearance heights for label & carrier materials (optional)

Compact dispenser design for improved access during equipping & loading

Automatic detection of label tape pre-end & label tape end

Label dispenser pull-out carriages for easy label material replacement or addition (optional)

Motorized winding & unwinding for increased machine throughput & long label formats (optional)

Round design for improved access & optimized operator protection

Different roll plate diameters available for longer operating times without label material changes (optional)

cup stacking magazine - PLS labeling machine - self adhesive labels

Cup stacking magazine

Cups stacks are manually placed into stack guides and led to the cup destacking station (clocked).

Cup destacking station

Automatic cup stack feeding station with cup singling and belt transfer with modular, servo-driven singling spindles can process almost any cup shape.

Bottom labeling

Bottom labels are affixed using a pressure sensitive label dispenser above the conveyor belt. The station is autonomous and can be flexibly integrated into the production flow.

Side labeling

Founded on tried and tested GERNEP pressure sensitive labeler technology, the side labeling station supports up to 8 label dispensers.

Cup destacking station

The cups are stacked using an adapted stack edge.

Discharge station

Devised as a buffer, this station takes the strain off laborers by automatically counting cup quantities before discharge.


Self-adhesive labeling from the roll

For paper and foil labels, also as transparent or metallised materials. The labels are released and transferred under servo control with extremely high precision. Various systems can be optionally supplied for non-stop operation.


The wide variety of labeling options allow you to react quickly to market trends, label cups for promotions, push win codes and competitions, vary barcodes and even affix special leporellos without high energy costs or constraints for technical reasons.


As well as visual enhancement utilizing high-quality labeling – with matt or gloss printing, surfaces with gold or silver embossing or labels with “no label look,” everything to do with label design is quickly and rationally possible.

Performance range

Our GERNEP CUPBLOCK system with modular construction kit is a customized solution whose performance and configuration is adapted to individual requirements.

Additional equipment

Because of our flexible machine system, additional equipment for particular container orientation, supplemental labeling, and label control can already be considered at the planning stage or retrofitted.
