Industrial Label Printer

Industrial label printers are designed for harsh environments and large volume printing. Specifications can include rugged & durable design, resistance against dust/moisture/abnormal temperatures, precise identification, etc for high-speed and reliable printing. Industrial label printer applications include warehouse/manufacturing label printing, shipping, logistics, supply chain label printing, and more.

Industrial Labels

Label Dispenser

Label dispensers allow for easy, automatic removal of labels from its liner (or backing) while rewinding what remains of the material. It works on paper, acetate, polyester, vinyl, and a lot more substrates. Label dispensers have three types namely manual, semi-automatic, and fully automated.

To use a manual label dispenser, the operator will need to rotate the label roll to separate the label from the liner. A semi-automatic uses a sensor to turn the labels which lets the operator remove and apply the label. Lastly, fully automated dispensers are a part of label applicators that systematically dispense and applied the labels.
