Pharmastar syst 3 from LabelStar on Vimeo.


PHARMASTAR SYSTEM 3 is an inline pressure sensitive labeling machine for highly precise bottom labeling.

This system is using a star wheel system to properly introduce a bottle of any shape to the labeling applicator. The bottles are guided by a star wheel pocket, the labels are positively picked up from the web by a special chuck applicator and are precisely transferred onto the bottom part of the container. This system ensures perfect placement of the label every time.

  • The star wheel system allows for perfect separation of each bottle before it reaches the labeling station
  • It keeps track of every faulty container throughout the system
  • It positively rejects the faulty container into a motorized accumulation conveyor inside the machine

The PharmaStar™ labeler can be configured to be easily integrated into an existing production line and can be incorporated with the latest in quality verification systems, such as:

  • Bar Code Scanners
  • Vision Inspection Systems with OCR/OCV Inspection of lot # / expiration date
  • Label Code Verification
  • Label Presence Sensors

(“FLRS SYSTEM”) Faulty Label Reconciliation System
The FLRS unit is designed with track-and-trace capabilities for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and bio-tech applications which require the removal of a faulty label before it is applied onto the container.

All inspections that fail will result in the defective container being positively rejected and tracked in the batch reporting system.

For final Productivity report a CFR 21, Parts 11 data report is also offered.

Applications: Variously shaped containers with highly precise label application

SPEED: Up to 220 BPM**

* Speed and performance criteria are subject to testing with actual samples.
