Swing applicator 3214

For precise real-time labeling of very small to medium sized labels.

Preferred method is to apply the labels from the side.

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

A rotating cylinder turns to the labeling position. The label is positioned onto the product via stroke cylinder. Pivoting angle and linear stroke are adjustable.

This is a very important criterion for us! In the present case we have opted for a cab Hermes+4 print and apply system with swing applicator 3214 and a special pad."
