Product Label Applicators Overview
Product label applicators are versatile devices that easily apply a label to the surface of a product. Depending on the application and shape of the product, certain types of applicators are more suitable than others. Types of product label applicators include:
- C-wrap (clamshell)
- Corner wrap
- High speed
These devices can be manual, semi-automatic, or fully automatic. This versatility enables manufacturers to opt for an applicator that is ideally suited for the unique needs of each project. Label applicators are an excellent way to streamline the production process, ensuring rapid and proper placement of the label.
Product Label Applicator FAQs
The following are some of the most frequently asked questions about product label applicators.
Which surfaces can be labeled with label applicators?
It is possible to use a label applicator on essentially any surface, including more challenging surfaces that are damp, oily, or dusty. Choosing the appropriate adhesive for the specific product surface and environment is vital.
Which type of label applicator should I use?
To accommodate a range of products and surfaces, there are many types of product label applicators available. When choosing the best option, it is important to consider factors such as the size and shape of the product, the product’s surface, the desired location of the label, and the desired level of productivity.
Can any product be labeled using an applicator?
The versatility of label applicators means that they can work with almost any type of product, regardless of shape. Common options include labeling the top and side of small cylindrical products such as cosmetic containers, top labeling of flat products, and lateral labeling of bottles or large containers.
What maintenance is required?
Proper maintenance reduces costs and improves the longevity of the product label applicator. It is important to regularly clean the applicator’s sensors and cutters, as dirt may build up and begin impacting the device’s ability to cut the labels. Additionally, cleaning the head is an important maintenance step to ensure the continued quality of the labels.
What costs are involved?
The cost of a label applicator varies depending on the type of applicator and the specific application requirements. Some potential costs to consider include the size of the applicator, the label creation software, electricity usage, and pneumatic air.
Can labeling machines be integrated with existing equipment/processes?
Depending on the type of applicator and the setup of the facility, it is possible to integrate product label applicators with existing equipment. Fully automatic applicators can more easily connect to existing systems, communicating with production lines and scanners. Manual or semi-automatic applicators cannot integrate into an existing system but can provide added flexibility during the production process.
Which industries use labeling machines?
Product label applicators are highly versatile, with uses across a diverse range of industries. These include:
- Food and beverage
- And more!
