The Circle of Linerless
At Ravenwood, we don’t just sell machines, we provide the complete linerless solution. The ‘Circle of Linerless’ is a term coined by Ravenwood to encapsulate our joined-up approach to the whole process. It is a bond of trust with our clients.
We build the Com500 coater to make the labels, the Nobac 5000 applicators to apply them and we work with the raw material suppliers to develop the best substrates, adhesives and silicones to work in a consistent and quality driven manner.

Driving Down CO2
All Ravenwood machinery is built in the UK. This means that carbon emissions are kept to a minimum and this is especially apparent where the Nobac 5000 linerless applicator is concerned. Over 90% of the machine’s weight is produced in the UK and all parts are machined on site at Ravenwood’s factory in Norwich or sourced within a 4-mile radius.
More and more brand owners are now switching to linerless in a bid for carbon neutrality. As mentioned, the main USP of linerless is that there is no release liner. By eliminating the liner carries many benefits, including zero waste to landfill, disposal costs and a much-reduced carbon footprint. Linerless is a more environmentally friendly and sustainable process of food labelling. In 2020, Ravenwood prevented 12.1 million KG of CO2 being released into the atmosphere. In the same year, Ravenwood produced 5 billion labels worldwide, thus saving 82 million m2 of label liner going to landfill or incineration.
