Flag applicator 4712

Labels can be applied in real time from all sides precisely on round materials such as cables, hoses or pipes

The pad locates in front of the peel-off plate. It picks up a label while it is being printed. The label is transferred to the spot of application by a stroke cylinder. A further cylinder guides the material all around the material using cam control. First, both endings of a label are stuck together. Then the label is tamped to the round material. The length of the stroke cylinder defines the maximum distance of a product to the peel-off plate.
