A label applicator’s primary operations are straightforward. The machine takes a roll of labels, peels the labels off the backing liner, dispenses, and applies them directly to the product’s surface. With a label application machine, you can label more products faster and more reliably, without wrinkles or creases, for a more professional end product. In addition, you can assure high-quality brand identification with a precise label on your products.
Manual vs. Semi-Automatic and Automatic Label Application
Hand-applying labels to a product is a time-consuming and imprecise operation. To guarantee that it is properly aligned, a great deal of attention to detail is required. Also, if a front and back label is necessary, such as wine or personal care products, this can be more complex. However, this is no longer an issue with label applicators available in manual, semi-automatic, and automatic versions.
A manual labeler operates without the use of power. It features an arm and a roller to maintain the container while the label is applied. Semi-automatic labeling is a mid-point for automation, speed, and size. An operator is needed to position the product and start the procedure on semi-automatic label applicators. The applications for automatic labeling are quick and fully automated. They are designed for more extensive operations and allow more customization. Manual and semi-automatic label applicators are available from ForeFront Label Solutions.
