Premier Label Heads

We manufacture two standard types of labelling head (also known as label applicator or dispenser). The highest specification head we offer is the P250 label head that is renowned for incredibly high label placement accuracy of ±0.5mm, and fast line speeds with a maximum label feed speed of 50m/min. Putting that into a production perspective, some of our customers utilise the P250 to label accurately and consistently at line speeds of up to 450 units per minute. However this is label length dependent and the majority fall within a 50-200 average units per minute window.

The other label head we manufacture is the P100 label head. Originally designed as a flash label applicator the P100 is ideal for applying small labels (such as tamper evident seals) at relatively high speeds, however throughput is limited on longer label lengths with a maximum feed speed of 25m/min. It also has less advanced features and adjustment options but can still label within a ±1mm window.
