Swing applicator 3214

To precisely apply very small to medium sized labels in real time.

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

The pad's position is in front of the peel-off plate. The label is held during the printing. A cylinder rotates to the labeling position. A stroke cylinder applies the label on the product. The angle of rotation and linear stroke are adjustable.


Application example

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."
