Stroke applicator 4014/4016

For real-time labeling on packaging or products

According to the type of pad the product is either in or not in motion. Labels may be applied from all sides.

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

A sensor enables to detect the product and to control the pad moving to its initial position after labeling. The length of the stroke cylinder defines the maximum distance from the peel-off plate to the product.

Transfer modules for stroke applicator 4014 / 4016

Tamp padTamp pad
Labels are precisely applied on flat, even recessed surfaces.

 

Universal padUniversal pad
Labels are applied onto even surfaces. The vacuum holes providing suction to the labels are pilot holes placed in a distance of 5 mm and covered with sliding film. These are opened according to the label size using a punching tool. Two spare sliding films are included in the scope of delivery.

 

Spring-mounted tamp padSpring-mounted tamp pad
The spring-mounted vacuum plate enables  labeling on curved surfaces up to 15°. Vertical deviation may be up to 10 mm within the label area.

Blow padBlow pad
For pressure-sensitive surfaces or products in motion. Labels are applied via air jet onto the product. The distance of 5-10mm to the product surface is set with a stop at the stroke cylinder. 

 

Roll-on padRoll-on pad
Labels are rolled on flat product surfaces during their transport.

 

Corner-wrap padCorner-wrap pad
Labels are applied on two adjacent product sides. The tamp pad applies the first half on top side of the product and then the second half of the label is rolled on.
