Abstract (en)

A machine (10) for fitting hang-tags or the like on bottles, characterized in that it comprises, on a supporting structure (11), at least one assembly (12) which follows, over a certain extent, each bottle (16) in transit from bottling, the assembly (12) being constituted by a longitudinally elongated guide (13) on which the loops to be fitted are stacked and whose lower end is shaped so as to axially blend with the head of the bottle (16). A magazine is associated with the guide (13) so as to lie parallel thereto, is open at the bottom and is meant to contain, in a stacked configuration with lower supports, the tags (15) carried by the loops. Actuation means are present which are suitable to remove from the magazine the lowest tag (15) of the stack, forcing its loop to fit over the neck of the bottle (16). <IMAGE>
