Labelling Solutions

Medium - High Speed Rotary Labelling:

The rotary self-adhesive labellers of MONDIAL (, part of P.E. LABELLERS GROUP (, focuses on the wine industry (or other industries with similar application requirements).
P.E. (since 1974) is widely regarded as one of the world leaders in the labelling sector, approaching 11.000 installations. Many P.E. labellers are to be found in the South African wine industry, although the initial focus was to achieve market leadership in other industry sectors.
Having achieved this objective, the rebranding of the dedicated wine industry range (From P.E. to MONDIAL) took place late in 2017. P.E. branded labellers will continue to be sold to other industries, but the MONDIAL range, manufactured in a dedicated plant, focus on the wine industry and other similar applications.
Such focus holds many advantages, including:


  • Manufacturing savings that make the range very price competitive (notwithstanding advanced design & functionality advantages)
  • Advantages associated with a focus on "application precision" vs the alternative to focus primarily on "high application speed". The range covers 1500 to 18 000 b/h, but should higher speed be desired, manufacturing will be outsourced to P.E. Group’s other manufacturing plant.
  • Using an ergonomic frame for easy access for maintenance & changeover operations
  • Multi label application functionality (normally 3 – 4, but can be up to 6)
  • The central body is available in different versions of a modular design. This allows for easy future upgrade (to add more labelling stations or other functionalities). Design characteristics allow for modular machines with either mechanical cams or electronic cam-shafts with integrated servomotors.
  • Leading edge, product differentiating bottle orientation options. The optical & mechanical spotting systems allows for automatic alignment of printed capsules, side and bottom notch lugs, silk screen prints, bottle seams, labels, seals etc.


CDSVINTEC (having sold, installed & maintained labellers to the wine sector for more than 40 years), was the logical choice as a focused agency holder. Our supply options now cover a wider range with more technology advanced options available.

Slow – Medium Speed Linear Labelling

Throughput of 800 - 2500 b/h

The range of labelling systems offered by CDA ( covers a wide range of applications, in semi-automatic & automatic linear format covering the range of 800 – 2500 b/h. By far the market leader in volume sales, it is easy to set-up, user-friendly, very flexible & compact, the labellers are extremely price competitive and able to apply any type of adhesive labels onto the majority of container types. It has also very popular for those offering mobile labelling services, having proved its ruggedness under adverse conditions.

CDA also offers the potential inclusion of capsuling on some of their machines. This has proved very popular for smaller producers and/or where available space is at a premium. A very popular CDA machine is the Lystop S, an automatic labelling machine specially designed for the Wine sector. This machine applies up to four labels (label, back label, neck and medal label) on wine bottles (and can include capsuling capacity). It allows for fast and efficient labelling of bottles (up to 2500 b/h) and can be incorporated into a medium-speed bottling line.

Throughput of 2500 - 3000 b/h (and other alternatives)

Solutions not covered by the CDA range are available from French producer, ALBAGNAC (part of the COSTRAL Group). COSTRAL has been represented in South Africa for more than 25 years. A very popular machine is the MERCURE III. It is a distribution / capping / self-adhesive linear labelling machine adapted to packaging lines at a rate of 3000 b/h, so it effectively covers the gap between the 2500 bph CDA LYSTOP and the point where a rotary machine (> 3000 b/h), may be preferable.
