Vacuum belt applicators 5326/5426

For real-time labeling on packaging or products in motion

Labels may be applied on the product from all sides on a flat surface, on a cylinder resp. by corner wrap labeling.

The vacuum belt applicator is positioned in front of the peel-off plate. The printed label is moved to the labeling position via vacuum belt and applied on the packaging via external signal. Printing and labeling may be done simultaneously.
