Diageo Canada install Self-Adhesive Makro Labeller


The Montreal Diageo plant has just installed a Makro Self-Adhesive Labeller on their new bottling line that handles their high-end range of spirits.

When Diageo approached Makro for this new project, the size and scope of the bottles going down the new line ranged from round, oval, square and reverse tapered. The Makro solution was to offer their patented optical orientation solution, 'Follower', that incorporates the Makro offering of modularity, flexibility and practicality.

The self-adhesive technology was chosen for its clean and accurate bottle dress, essential for these premium spirits because some of the bottles required a number of labels - front, back shoulder. As the run length is not huge, change overs have to be fast and accurate, something the Makro range of labellers offer as standard.

This installation at one of the leading Global spirit companies demonstrates the acceptance of Makro technology as a leading supplier of labelling.

Makro will be at drinktec in Munich next week in Hall B5 were they will be exhibiting their latest technology.
