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!
