Stroke-turn applicator 4214

to precisely apply very small to medium sized labels when installation is difficult.

The labels can be applied from all sides on the product.

The pad's position is in front of the peel-off plate. The label is held during the printing. A cylinder horizontally rotates up to 180° to the labeling position. A stroke cylinder applies the label on the product. The length of the stroke cylinder defines the maximum distance between the peel-off plate and the product.

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


Tamp pad with damping pad Tamp pad with damping surface
to reduce noise when hard surfaces are processed. It is also recommended with rough structures and minor unevenness.

Tamp pad with label stop
In case small labels are processed, the label stop enables the label to be applied on the product very exactly. 


Blow padBlow pad
in case of pressure-sensitive surfaces or when products in motion are processed. Air jet blows the label onto the product. 5 - 10 mm distance to the product surface can be adjusted at the stroke cylinder with a stop.
