Front-side applicator 3014 / 3016

For real-time labeling on packaging in motion

Preferred method is to apply the labels on the front or back of the product. Labeling from above or from the side is possible.

The pad is positioned in front of the peel-off plate. The label is held by the applicator during the printing process.

Labels are applied on the product via rotating cylinder. A sensor enables the detection of the packaging and to control the pivot arm and pad moving to their initial position after labeling.
