Reason Manufacturers Moving From Automated Air Labelers

PA 6000 marks beverage crates


Plant managers and maintenance managers alike are deserting pneumatically driven label applicators in favor of all-electric label applicators for one BIG reason – dirty air lines.

Unpredictable, unfiltered air supplies disrupt the efficiency and performance of air supported tools and machinery, especially label applicators. Water, oil and particulate matter are hard on label applicators, impeding the performance and reliability of the tamp pad suction and the actuator arm – the key functionality of any automated labeling machine!

Although clogged air is the number one reason for choosing all-electric solutions, there are a number of benefits that air label applicators just can’t match:

  • Precision label handling across the entirety of the pad throughout transit
    • Superior suction made possible by larger vacuum passages prevents the routine clogging experienced in real-world manufacturing environments
    • Smart auto-retract sensors combined with a digital delay setting allow for superior control of impact force and maximum label adhesion upon contact
  • Electric SERVO motors and smart auto-retract sensors combine to achieve more precise movements, automatically compensating for changes in box sizes and distances without adjustments
  • No need to compromise on line speeds
  • No need to compromise on label sizes
  • Portable! No air line means you can plug in and run the label applicator anywhere
  • Saves energy consumption and saves money! All-electric labelers cost up to 50 - 90% less to run when compared to pneumatically driven systems

With all of this being said, not all electric label applicators are created equal! Contact us today to learn why Diagraph printer-applicators and label applicators lead the industry in both reliability and performance.

  • Overcoming the daily challenges of pigmented ink printing Posted 2 months ago
    Using pigmented ink in printers, especially ‘white ink’, often presents daily challenges compared to standard dye-based ink printers that result in more downtime. These challenges often include more frequent servicing and daily cleaning.
  • Avoid Labeling Mistakes by Removing Plant Air Posted 12 months ago
    All-electric label applicators revolutionize the packaging industry by eliminating the reliance on plant air, providing precise applicator control for consistent and accurate label placement and ensuring secure label control for various label sizes.
  • Is training production line workers creating a challenge? No problem!  Posted 7 years ago
    Companies rely on engineers or technicians to keep production lines up and running. These job functions are essential to hitting production targets, so it is key that their skill level on equipment is proficient. When making the decision to replace this equipment, the amount of time and money that will have to be invested in training your labor is a major deciding factor.
  • Don’t let fast drying ink slow down your CIJ coding process Posted last year
    Continuous inkjet printers (CIJ) use super-fast drying solvent-based inks. One of the technology challenges presented by these inks is that they aren’t too particular wherethey dry. With CIJ technology, the formation of drops from an inkjet stream creates a mist (or satellite drops) which builds up a layer of ink over time on the components inside the CIJ print head, causing print failure. Routine cleaning of ink with solvent from the components in a print head is required to maintain best print quality and uptime.
  • How do I get labels to stick in hot and humid environments? Posted 4 years ago
    Something to be aware of when considering using labeling for product identification in a hot or humid environment is that labels are sensitive to temperature, making facility environment temperature a determining factor in choosing what label material to use on a product.
