Swing applicator 3214

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

The labels are preferably applied on the side of the product.

The pad is positioned in front of the peel-off plate. The label is held during printing. A rotary cylinder swings in labeling position. The stroke cylinder applies the label on the product. Rotary angle and linear stroke are adjustable.


Application example
