About Automatic Label Application

What are Label Applicators used for?

An automatic label applicator is a labelling machine used to put a label on a wide range of packaging types for many different products, typically a box, case, shrink-wrapped pack, pallet, drum or other similar cylindrical products.

Label Applicators can form part of a print and apply label machine, or be used solely for pre-printed label application on a production line. You can learn more about the different application methods here.

What are the Benefits?

Automating your product labelling has a range of benefits for your packaging lines. This includes:

  • Improving the speed of labelling
  • Reducing placement errors
  • Increasing overall packaging line efficiency
  • Saving costs on label application

Automatic labelling delivers exceptional results for every production line, from small to large. Offering precise, high-speed label placement and minimising the impact of human error, they can transform the whole label printing and application process.

What Components Make up a Label Applicator?

Label applicators comprise an application cylinder or labelling head, a media handling facility, a user interface and sometimes a conveyor to move the material through the machine and onto the product. These parts work together for efficient automatic label application.

The Cobalt Prime comes equipped with the following:

  • Integrated colour touchscreen controller for machine status and settings
  • Simple numbered media path for ease of label roll loading
  • Adjustable beak angle for top, side and bottom application
  • Servo-controlled drive for accurate label placement at high speeds
  • Single product sensor input and outputs for beacon stack and user controls
  • Compatible with Cobalt standard floor stands
  • Optional encoder control to synchronise application speed with product movement
