M2 – High-Speed Wipe-on Label Applicator

An Intelligent and Versatile Label Applicator


The M2 is a compact label applicator designed to be simple to integrate into many packaging systems.

Engineered as a modular concept, the M2 incorporates the operator HMI, the label feed components, and all the controls into an elegant IP65-rated package.

The M2 has accurate speed following (when using an encoder) and a higher speed capability allowing it to address faster and more demanding applications.

For high-volume packaging lines, a pair of M2 applicators can be set up as a zero-downtime pair - avoiding the need to stop production for label roll replenishment.
