Tube Labeller: TU-8


Tube Labeller


Touted by one of Australia’s leading tube manufacturers as “incorporating all things you would want in one machine” the Compact TU-8 & TU-8+(plus) is designed to label plastic tubes with clear or opaque labels which can simply be wrapped onto the tubes or optionally oriented to “flip-caps” or “registration marks”. The tube labeler has been designed to operate as a Stand-alone unit, however infeed and outfeed conveyors can be added if required.

The standard machine consists of an infeed slide – adjustable by one screw knob for different size tubes. The infeed slide and pusher mechanism conceived by Compact is quite unique and while providing a large tolerance for setup – ensures zero rejects during the loading of the tube on the mandrels, even if the tubes have been previously damaged. The unique features of this machine will be forwarded to interested customers, please contact us for specific requirements.
