Printer Applicators and Labelers

 

Legible, accurate labels on your packages

MultiSystems offers a broad range of Label Printer Applicators and Labelers, ranging from simple semi-automatic label applicator to high speed label printer applicator with RFID encoder and fully integrated, custom applications. These printer applicators are integrated into a diversity of labeling situations, based on your packaging process and needs.

Based on your labeling and marking application, our extensive line includes a solution for any environment, volume or speed need.

Here are some applicators examples:

Air Jet / Blow-On Label Applicator

The air jet / blow-on labeling process is a non-contact method. The label is completely removed from the liner and held by a vacuum before a jet of air transfers it to the product.

The label is printed and immediately dispensed onto a vacuumed surface and staged until the time of application. The vacuum surface remains stationary, and the label is held in place on a “vacuum grid,” a surface covered with hundreds of small holes through which a vacuum is drawn. These same “vacuum holes” are used to retain “air jets,” small tubes plumbed from a common manifold, which are arranged in a pattern in the vacuum grid. From these “air jets” comes a blast of compressed air strong enough to overcome the vacuum, free the label from the grid and blow it onto the product.

Although this approach may seem precarious, it is quite reliable, having no moving parts, no contact with the product and requiring no dedicated tamp pads for different sizes. The air blow jets are simply repositioned to accommodate different labels, up to the maximum size of the vacuum grid.

Here is how it works:

Tamp Label Applicators

Probably the most common technique is called the “tamp,” or “air-tamp,” whereby the label dispenses from the printer off its carrier and is received onto a vacuumed surface that holds the label in place until the time of application.

The vacuumed surface, generally called a tamp pad or vacuum pad, is attached to the end of a mechanism that extends away from the printer by a pneumatic air cylinder. The tamp mechanism extends until the label contacts the product, at which time the mechanism retracts, and the label adheres to the product.

Some printer-applicators feature non-pneumatic tamps and instead uses electro-mechanical devices. Others feature “intelligent” tamp mechanisms equipped with sensors, useful for top applications where product height varies or for side applications where product handling may be a problem.

Corner Wrap Application

The corner wrap labeling unit applies labels around the corner of almost any square product. Custom variable information labels are applied on-line, in one process, by the pneumatically operated assembly ensuring complete label adhesion.

Swing Arm Application

Swing arm tamps allow labels to be placed on the leading or trailing edge of boxes and pallets.

MultiSystems also provide permanent identification solutios
