Front-side applicator 3014 / 3016

to apply labels on packaging in motion in real time. 

The labels are preferably applied on the front or back side. Labeling from the top or from the side is possible.

The pad's position is in front of the peel-off plate. The label is taken over during the printing.

The rotary cylinder applies the label on the product. A sensor detects the packaging and directs the pivot arm and pad back to its initial position.
