WHAT IS A LABEL APPLICATOR?
Label Applicator machines and equipment automatically print and apply pressure sensitive labels to a multitude of products that we use in our everyday lives. These machines are used to apply shipping labels, content labels, and graphical images with great speed and accuracy. This is accomplished through several methods, the most common of which are:
- Air Cylinder Tamp – This process is a combination of the tamp cylinder (above) and another technology that delivers a burst of air that blows that label onto the desired product.
- Air Blow – Uses a strong burst of air to deliver the label from the liner to the product’s surface without the use of a tamp cylinder.
- Wipe-on/Roll-on – Lastly, this method uses a brush or roller to wipe on the label on its designated position.
