Front side applicator 3014, 3016

For real-time labeling on packaging in motion

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

The pad is positioned in front of the peel-off plate. The label is held during printing. The rotary cylinder applies the label on the packaging. A sensor detects the packaging and, when labeling has finished, moves back the pivot arm and pad to their initial position.
