Label presses for draining and compressing

With hydraulic drainage presses from WEIMA, plastic and aluminum labels or caps of glass and plastic bottles are not only drained by up to 70%, but also reduced in volume.

Especially bottling plants and plastic recyclers can find a sustainable solution for the cost-effective disposal of labels and label waste from their own production or post-consumer waste.

WEIMA label presses stand for robust, durable technology and maintenance-friendly operation. They not only ensure clean production halls, but also relieve the burden on intralogistics. Reduce your disposal costs and increase your container service life – with drainage machines from WEIMA.

In the following gallery you will find examples of applications. These include labels, capsules for closing and labelling beer bottles, champagne bottles made of glass, as well as soft drink and juice bottles made of PET plastic.


Many labels – one drainage press

Labels on glass and plastic bottles are available in numerous sizes, shapes, colors and materials. But one thing unites them: WEIMA draining presses compress them into discs.

It doesn't matter whether you want to press body labels, breast labels, metal or PVC capsules, strip labels or back labels made of paper, PE film or aluminum foil. We have the right drainage solution for every beverage label.

The traditional Rothaus brewery also relies on WEIMA compaction technology from the dewatering press series. With an individual machine solution, used metal foil capsules made of aluminum are not simply disposed of, but compacted into compact discs.
