Labeller can wrap around corners

Related tags: Label

Industrial printer supplier Videojet has launched a Corner Wrap applicator for its 9550 ‘print and apply’ labeller.

It is designed for applications that require labelling on two sides of a case and can be seen from multiple orientations.

The applicator prints on one continuous label and, in a single procedure, applies it to the two adjacent panels of a case, ensuring that information on both sides is synced.

The Corner Wrap system eliminates the need for two applicators and ensures that causes of failures, adjustment and maintenance in conventional applications are eliminated.

The conventional approach to two-sided labelling uses two labellers to apply two different labels with duplicate information.

These label printer applicator machines use either blow applicators or telescopic tamp applicators to apply printed labels to packs.

Both methods rely on the accurate and timely placement of the label from the print engine onto an applicator pad.

When this mechanical process fails, the result is missing or wrinkled labels and sometimes damage to equipment.

In contrast, the 9550 Corner Wrap system uses Videojet’s patented Direct Apply labelling technology to affix the side section of a label. Next, a single pneumatic stroke of a wipe roller wraps the label onto the back of the case.
