Label applicator – APL 100

The APL 100 applicator is an optional accessory to the Carl Valentin – Compa II table thermal transfer printers for automatic application of printed labels on the product.


The application arm is controlled by a pneumatic cylinder using compressed air. The signal sensor is in the application pad. When the signal to apply a label is received, the label is printed and then transferred to the edge of the printer where it is vacuum-sucked onto the application pad and then applied to the product. The paper is reeled back onto the winding mandrel and the label is applied on the product that passes through or is inserted under the application pallet.


Tam pad

When the label is printed, it is moved to the application pallet where it is held down by air until it is applied by the pallet pressure on the product.


Blow pad

The “blow” system is designed for products that have to be marked without any pallet pressure: the label, prepared on the application pallet, is ejected by air pressure onto the standing or moving product. The distance between the pallet and the product is about 10 mm.


Roll on

The label is prepared on a roller and when the product receives an application signal, the label is applied by the roller and product movement.
