Front side applicators 3014, 3016

Labels can be applied in real time from the top or the side to packages
in motion

Front sides or back sides of a package are preferred.

The pad locates in front of the peel-off plate. It picks up a label while it is being printed. The label is transferred to a product with the help of a rotary cylinder. The package is detected by a sensor and the pivot arm with the pad returned to its initial position.
