Stroke turn applicator 4214

Labels very small or midsized can be applied in real time from all sides whenever the unit is difficult to install

The pad locates in front of the peel-off plate. It picks up a label while it is being printed. Powered by a rotary cylinder, the pad pivots into position by at most 180° in horizontal direction. The label is transferred to a product by a stroke cylinder. The length of the stroke cylinder defines the maximum distance of a product to the peel-off plate.


Application example for  stroke-turn applicator 4214

Labels are precisely tamped on plane surfaces. Recessed levels are possible as well.

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.
