Using PowerStick label applicators you can place labels in any position on your base web. The operator can easily set up the machine by moving the piece to the desired position and entering the repeat position relative to some page mark.
Once the machine is running it uses encoder feedback to automatically maintain registration at any speed.
You can also use the input from your existing vision system to automatically adjust label position in real time.
Synchronized, Continuous Motion with Soft-Start
The PowerStick starts with a quick, controlled acceleration from the stopped position. Then it automatically runs the label supply at a speed proportional to your web or product line to achieve your specified alignment, with no stop-start action.
Using our "slide-on" technique (U.S. patent 8,453,700), the label peels off the release liner, crosses a slide plate and affixes to the web, just as the pinch rollers apply the label. This smooth, accurate operation minimizes label breaks and product waste.
The PowerStick label applicator is designed for high speeds in high volume industrial environments. Built to last for 8 to 10 years, its construction is similar to that of high quality print and label presses.
Label applicator complete with onboard 20-inch roll label supply, release liner rewind, and frame with side-lay control. The PowerStick Onboard includes one-button reloading: returning to the operator for changing rolls and then automatically moving back to its operating position.
Multi-Applicator: one applicator lays down several items in one pass
The PowerStick Multi-Applicator applies 2 to 6 items across your base web at full speed. It can apply our full range of pressure-sensitive items, including electronic devices like RFID and NFC tags. See a multi-applicator in action.
