Vacuum belt applicator 5314 / 5316

For real-time labeling of packaging in motion

The printed label is moved into the labeling position via vacuum belt and applied on the packaging via external signal.

Labels may be applied from all sides. The conveyor speed is not related to the print speed.

Anwenderbericht VARTA

"With cab we immediately felt that they sell with competence. We have met with Sales Representatives who are able to disassemble and reassemble a printer themselves. That has been very well received by all of us."
