Labeling equipment offers you the ability to print and apply, or apply labels to products, cartons, cases, and pallets. As you implement this technology, you’ll likely find that label placement is more precise, production moves more quickly, and waste is decreased.
Labeling equipment can apply only, or print, dispense and apply labels to your product. With automated labelers, you have countless applications of use, more commonly used applications would be corner wrap, single tamp, or dual tamp applications.
Manufacturers frequently need to label their products and often are required to do so. This is especially true for the food, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical markets. Fortunately, there is a vast array of labeling equipment available that will meet almost any need.
What Are Labeling Machines?
The primary purpose of labeling machines, as their name implies, is to attach a label to a product, product container, or load. Labeling machines are available in several varying designs dependent on the application. Some will print content directly to the label and seamlessly apply it or there are machines that will simply apply a pre-printed label. Labels come in all kinds of shapes and sizes and can be applied to a massive range of products using a variety of methods and in various product locations.
