455 – High Speed Wipe On Label Printer Applicator for Harsh Environments

High speed wipe on label printer applicator

Contact Us to Get Started

The Model 455 is a high-speed wipe-on label printer applicator designed for use in harsh washdown environments. It is usually used to print and apply labels to corrugated cases in the protein industry.

The 455 applies labels 30-40% faster than standard tamp style applicators. The wipe-on module utilizes fans to create the vacuum needed to hold the label in place prior to application. As the product passes the applicator the label is applied and wiped down by a secondary roller. This application technique creates great adhesion with no label skew.

An optional secondary wipe can be integrated into the unit for corner wrap applications.
