Burt Horizontal Roll-Through Can Labeling Machine: Models 408 and 704

A standard for can labeling machines for more than 100 years, the Burt horizontal roll-through labeler's rugged durability withstands the rigors of daily production, while delivering precise application. Three types of conveying ensure positive control of tin, aluminum, composite, glass, or plastic containers.

Reliable Labeling for Round Containers

Burt labelers can apply full-wrap labels to cylindrical containers of virtually any material, at speeds of up to 800 CPM. A variety of conveying mechanisms and adjustable belt tighteners ensure positive container control. Additionally, this machine can apply a broad range of labeling materials, including papers, foils, plastics and laminates, for maximum flexibility.

Precise, Clean Application

The Burt can labeling machine promotes excellent label control by employing a unique hydraulic feed system, which smoothly and accurately positions labels. An optional second feed allows label loading while running. Also, Burt labelers offer positive label pickup, without glue slinging, for a clean appearance.
