An essential part of a whole packing line is pressure sensitive labelers which integrate with a range of product handling equipment. Self-stick labels can be handled by pressure-sensitive labelers with the greatest efficiency and the least amount of waste. This kind of label contains an adhesive glue backing, and it will stick to several surfaces.
Pre-glued labels come in a variety of thicknesses and weights on a reel of discharge paper, plastic film, laminate, fabric, or foil. The glue will stick without the need for water. By using brushes or tampers, the labels are mechanically coerced onto the box or container after being applied straight from the feeder reel.
The labels will move onto an applicator grid and shift down the pressure sensitive label applicator machine toward the vacuum applicator grid. Automatic pressure sensitive labelers will now apply labels to the goods with light to medium pressure. The label adheres to the goods as a result of the pressure activating the adhesive.
