Rotary Labelers for pressure-sensitive labels



pressure sensitive labels - pressure sensitive labeling machines

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


In many case, the slightly higher cost of PS Labels (compared to cut & stack labels) is offset by the low price of label size parts, the quick changeovers and because no cleaning is required.  Rotary pressure-sensitive labelers also works with different material (paper, clear plastic) and unlimited graphic options with shapes, sizes and finish.


Gernep is using servo-driven Label Applicators which are perfectly integrated with the main control of the Soluta Rotary Labeler and all parameters are memorized by the PLC 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 Labeler for PS Labels

Gernep has developped 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 Labeler comes in different configurations to apply PS labels to many different containers made of glass, PET, plastic and metal with up to 8 label applicators.  If offers maximum versatility for manufacturers of  beverages, food, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. 


The Soluta Rotary 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

  • Rounded frame design with improved access & optimized operator protection


  • The labels are fed  by a servo motor for maximum labeling accuracy


  • The label applicator parameters are adjusted from the machine touch panel


  • Large diameter roll supports available for longer runs without changeovers (optional)
  • Reliable detection of transparent and shiny label material


  • Label applicator configuration for tall labels up to 12” (optional)


  • Compact label applicator design for easier set-up, roll changeovers and maintenance


  • Redundant function with 2 label applicators per label or automatic splicer for non-stop operation (optional)
  • Label applicators on sliding device for easy roll changeovers (optional)


  • Motorized unwinder and rewinder for the label applicator for high-speed and long labels (optional)


  • Heavy-duty supports for the label applicators with dial indicators for quick adjustments


  • Automatic detection of low-web and end-of-web on label rolls

Range of machines

The portfolio of rotary labeling machines made by Gernep includes standard design as well as highly customized systems.  When the other guys say it’s impossible, there is a good chance Gernep will listen and propose a solution.

Optional equipment

The Gernep rotary labelers offer a vast array of configurations and options depending on your application.  Whether you need to do bottle orientation prior labeling, apply multiple labels to the same bottle, print variable information or inspect the labels, we can do.

Fully automatic plastic cup labeling

The standard for equipment versatility and flexibility in cup labelling.


The technology of this innovative cup labelling system has evolved from practice. The heart of the system, the labelling station with self-adhesive labelling from the roll, has been functionally supplemented by an automatic destacking and stacking station. 

This means that continuous labelling of single to multi-piece contoured cups is possible for the first time. The money and effort that is saved by minimising stock keeping is eminent, since production can also take place “just in time” with this system if required.

rotary labeler - rotary labeling machines - multi panel labeling


  • Fully automatic cup supply, destacking, labelling, stacking and discharge. All processes combined in one compact and powerful unit


  • Non-stop function with 2 dispensers per label, free-standing loop pre-roller or free-standing automatic splicer for uninterrupted continuous operation (optional)


  • The label material is fed in by a PLC-controlled servo drive for maximum labelling accuracy


  • The dispenser parameters are adjusted directly on the device or via the machine touch panel
  • Robust, torsion-resistant tripod for label dispenser with adjusting scales for precise and repeatable dispenser / label positioning 


  • Reliable detection, even of transparent and shiny label material


  • Different clearance heights for the label and carrier material can be selected (optional)


  • Compact dispenser design for improved access during equipping and loading


  • Automatic detection of label tape pre-end and label tape end
  • Pull-out carriages for the label dispensers make replacement and addition of label material easier (optional)


  • Motorised winding and unwinding for increased machine throughput and long label formats (optional)


  • Round design with improved access and optimised operator protection


  • Different roll plate diameters can be selected for longer operating times without changing material (optional)
cup stacking magazine - PLS labeling machine - self adhesive labels

Cup stacking magazine

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

Cup destacking station

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

Bottom labelling

Bottom labels are affixed using a self-adhesive label dispenser above the conveyor belt. The station is autonomous, and can be flexibly integrated in the production flow.

Side labelling

The side labelling station is based on well-tried GERNEP self-adhesive technology with up to 8 label dispensers.

Cup destacking station

The cups are stacked in cup stacks with an adapted stack edge.

Discharge station

This is designed as a buffer station to take the strain off the employees. Once the quantity has been counted the cups are discharged.


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 labelling options allows 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 by means of high-quality labelling – 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 with the modular construction kit system is a customised individual solution whose performance and configuration is adapted to the respective requirements.

Additional equipment

Because of our flexible machine system, additional equipment for special container orientation, additional labelling and label control can already be taken into consideration at the planning stage or retrofitted.
