Labeler Applicators

What’s the difference?

Tamp/Blow label applicators are a non-contact way to apply labels to hard-to-reach areas on products like recessed lids, such as pie shell containers. Each label is fed onto the labeler’s tamp pad and held by a vacuum. When a product is detected the pneumatic cylinder extends and the label is blown onto the surface of the product.  This applicator allows for a variable distance. Bags of bread are another example of a product that you might label with a tamp/blow applicator.

Vac/Blow label applicators allow safe and contact-free labeling. This is a wonderful labeling application used for flexible packaging such as chip or candy bags. The label is fed onto the labeler’s tamp pad. A burst of air blows the label onto the surface when a product is detected without impact or damage to the product. Labeling flexible packages is something we do a lot. This is probably the application that we use 80% of the time.

Wipe-On label applicators use a brush, a roller or other material to wipe the label onto the product. This application can be used on flexible packages as well as detergent bottles, lids of margarine containers and even clamshell containers.

Tamp label applicators come in brief contact with the product. When the product is detected the pneumatic cylinder extends causing the pad to briefly contact the product in order to tamp the label on. Cases of yogurt or pallets of decorative rocks.

When deciding on the right application for your next labeling job, remember:

  • Identify your need.
  • Where in your production line will the labeling process take place?

These two things will help determine the type of labeler and application needed. Contact EPI Labelers for your LABELER needs. Knowing the labeler and application you will be using will help determine labels and label sizes that are possible.
