Primera Technology (Primera), one of the world's leading manufacturers of specialty printers, today announced its new AP550 Label Applicator for flat surfaces is now shipping.
AP550 is a semi-automatic label applicator that makes it fast and easy to precisely apply product and identification labels onto a wide range of flat surfaces such as rectangular or tapered bottles, boxes, packages, bags, pouches, lids, tins and much more.
Labels are applied straight, without wrinkles or folds, in exactly the location desired. This gives finished products a highly professional look and significantly increases the number of containers that can be labeled per hour versus manually applying labels.
Operation is simple: place the container in the mechanism and pull the arm towards the container.
Variable spacing, memory for up to nine jobs, and a counter with built-in LED display are all included. No air-pressure supply is required which can be a significant advantage over other label applicators that require expensive, noisy and maintenance-prone air compressors.
AP550 is the perfect accessory for labels produced by Primera’s popular LX- and CX-Series color label printers and digital label presses.
Together, they provide a complete print-and-apply solution that’s ideal for a wide range of manufacturers and distributors.
Roll or fan-fed labels printed by other methods such as flexographic, offset and thermal transfer can also be applied with the applicator. For round containers such as bottles, cans and jars, Primera also offers its popular AP360 and AP362 Label Applicators.
