Swing applicator 3214

Labels very small or midsized can be applied in real time, preferably from the side

The pad locates in front of the peel-off plate. It picks up a label while it is being printed. A rotary cylinder pivots into position. The label is transferred to a product by a stroke cylinder. Rotary angles and linear hubs are adjustable.


Application example

Anwenderbericht Pharma

"Due to a comprehensive portfolio of products and accessories as well as the close collaboration with cab we are able to live up to individual customer demands. 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."

When applying labels to hard surfaces, the noise level is reduced. It benefits also in cases of rough structures or little unevenness.

Tamp-on pad, providing a label stop
It enables small labels be applied exactly on spot to a product.


Blow-on padBlow-on pad
It benefits when labels have to be applied to sensitive surfaces or products in motion. Labels are blown on by a blast of air. Stroke cylinder adjustment enables bridging distances of 5 to 10 mm to the surface of a product.
