PowerStick Multi-Applicators

High Volume Applicators for Industrial Web Movers

Our latest model PowerStick applies multi-up labels or electronic devices onto fast moving base webs at 500,000 pieces or more per hour. Typically the base web is a multi-up printed product. PowerStick adds items on top or under each of your individual products. Examples:

  • Gum packages,
  • Lottery tickets,
  • Coffee cups,
  • Prime labels printed multi-up,
  • Direct mail pieces.

The PowerStick Multi-Applicator uses our patented technology (US patent 8,453,700) designed for speed, flexibility and ease of operation - using smooth, continous motion with no start-stop. You decide where to place the label. The applicator maintains speed and registration in synch with your base web.
