Primera today announced its new AP360 and AP362 Label Applicators.
The two applicators are compact, semi-automatic labeling devices that make it fast to apply pressure-sensitive labels to bottles, cans, jars, tubes and many other cylindrical and tapered containers. Up to 1200 containers per hour is possible.
Operation is simple: set the guides, place the container in the mechanism, press the footswitch and the label is applied. A wide range of products can be labeled, including wine, water, beer, spirits and other beverages, sauces, nutriceuticals, vitamins, cosmetics, bath and spa products, spices, specialty foods, health and beauty care, oils, lotions, fragrances, chemicals, paint and much more.
AP360 is the base model and applies labels to the front of containers. AP362 is an advanced model that includes front and back labeling with variable spacing, memory for up to nine jobs, and a counter with built-in LED display.
An integrated, spring-loaded pressure arm applies consistent downward pressure to affix labels even on very small radius containers such as lip balm tubes.
AP360 and AP362 can be used with Primera's color label as well as flexographic, offset and thermal transfer printers.
AP360 is priced at US$1495 (MSRP) and AP362 is priced at US$1795 (MSRP).
