Labelling

Fully automated print & apply label applicators are quick, extremely precise, consistent and low maintenance. Print and apply systems can be designed for any packaging including bags and boxes.

 

Print & apply label applicators are frequently used to:

  • Uniquely barcode a product for identification and automation
  • Print a label onto a consumable (i.e. on food cartons)
  • Print shipping label on packaging

Types of Print & Apply

Case Labelling

Any side of a case can have a label applied, which means you need a solution that can meet this requirement. Labelling applicators are specifically designed for 90° , top down or regular side printing and apply.

 

Labels can also be printed around the corners of a case, allowing you to use one label to cover two sides of the case.

 

Print and apply units are capable of printing up to 4,800 labels per hour, depending on the application method.

Bag Labelling

Bag print and apply label applicators are the perfect solution for an automated bagging line. The print and apply unit can be placed inside automated bagging machines (where suitable), achieving a perfectly placed label while reducing space requirements and controls costs.

 

Print and apply units of this style are capable of printing up to 3,000 labels per hour, however when placed within a bagging machine a throughput of around 1,000 units per hour is an expected.

Pack Labelling

Pack print and apply label applicators are non-contact, offering advantages for shrink wrapped packages with oddly shaped or curved edges by still giving a readable barcode finish.

Print and apply pack labelling systems do not need speed synchronisation or special conveyor systems, driving down cost of installation and ownership. These systems are capable of labelling up to 4,800 packs per hour, with perfect accuracy.

Pallet Labelling

Pallet Print and apply label applicators are capable of applying labels on up to 3 sides of a pallet, without the need to rotate the pallet on a turntable.

 

3-sided label application allows for redundancy, which can help with automation further down the line along with ease of handling pallets throughout your warehouse.

 

The application of labels is totally automated, enabling the application of labels on 3 sides of a pallet up to 250 times per hour.
