Universal R-310 Labeler with Auto Eject

How do I speed up labeling of small diameter containers or sleeves?

The optional “auto-eject” feature on the Universal R-310 labeler can increase labeling throughput by 25%.  This accessory automatically air ejects the labeled product from the carriage or mandrel.  Quite often our customers will either option or build a custom chute to move the products to a box.  By eliminating the need to remove the product, the user can complete larger jobs in less time.
How does it work?

For vials or bottles, the air cylinder becomes the bottles stop.  The user places each bottle in the products carriage and taps a foot switch.  The adjustable pneumatic carriage rises to the drive roller and the product is labeled.  After labeling, the carriage retracts and the product is instantly ejected to the open ended left side.  For tubes, the process is similar except each product is loaded onto a custom mandrel.  The air eject can be adjusted (for all applications) to fine tune exactly how far you want the product thrown.

Fugitive Hot Melt Glue

Fugitive Hot Melt Glue

Fugitive hot melt is commonly known as peelable, pouch seal, credit card, booger, or removable glue. It is clear and produces medium tack between the substrates. No residue or mess is left behind when removed like with double-sided tape and other hot melts. This product can be also dispensed in multiple forms and temperatures.

Where would I have seen this product used?

When you receive a new credit card in the mail, it is the thin strip of glue you find attached to the back.

What are some other applications?

Fugitive glue us typically used for creating floral bouquets, crafts, attaching business cards, mass mailing of magazines, samples, or coupons. It also can be used to bond paper, plastic, cardboard, metals, vinyls, and glass.

Fugitive is available in 3 forms:

      1. Glue dots or dabs with several strength variations.
      2. 1.5 ounce cartridges dispensed using a specialized hot melt glue gun
      3. Small bricks for bulk dispensing systems

 

Top & Bottom Labeling Systems

Top & Bottom Labeling Systems

Did you know that there are a variety of methods for top and bottom inline labeling applications? The three most common solutions are interrupted, hugger, or split belt conveyors. The type is chosen by the relationship between the product’s contact surface and bottom label. Call us at 800-275-0828 to receive a no obligation system quote!

These machines work on a variety of cosmetic, electronics, personal healthcare, baked goods, produce, and confectioneries. The top is typically the prime label and the bottom an ingredients label. The containers themselves can be labeled as round, flat, or indented. Print-and-apply options are also available!

 

Interrupted Belt Applications: shrink wrapped trays rectangular or elongated boxes, and clamshells

 

 

Hugger Belt Applications: drink bottles, ice cream sandwiches, small jars, pralines, and vitamins

 

 

 

Split Belt Applications: frozen foods, meat trays, packaged cakes or cookies, and bags

Better than Tape or Staples: Using Hot Melt for Packaging Applications

Better than Tape or Staples: Using Hot Melt for Packaging Applications

Hot melt is often the perfect choice for packaging applications. Whether being dispensed by gun or bulk system, it forms a stronger, more flexible, and less expensive bond than carton sealing tape. It also do not have any adverse chemical effect on the substrates being packed, unlike solvent based adhesives. Moreover, by using hot melt, box printed graphics are not covered up with tape or staples.

The most common packaging project is case sealing. Priddy Sales offers a multitude of gluing options for small or large boxes as well as low temperature formulations for sensitive materials. For coated boxes, the stronger bonding Surebonder 735 gets the job done!

Another overlooked application is the building of point-of-sale and point-of-purchase displays. Tecbond 214 is the industry standard providing a fast and economical solution.

For large volume production projects we recommend using a spray grade hot melt. The Tecbond Spraytec line has options for specialty packaging, pallet stabilization, protective foams, and wrap around cartons.

Some other benefits:

      • Less expensive and faster to apply than box/case sealing tape
      • Offers a tamper-proof seal for extra product security
      • Available in a wide variety of bond times and strengths
      • Lower temperature options for delicate or expensive items
      • Indefinite shelf life; use it when you need it

Low Cost Digital Labels for Smaller Projects

For years, short run (under 100,000) 4-color process labels HAD to be flexo press printed which required expensive dies and plates. The future is here with digital press printing technology! With quantities as low as 100 labels, shorter lead-times, and no plates or dies; you will save BIG.

Digital printing allows for ANY shaped label up to 8.7” wide with an unlimited amount of colors. That means any shape, no matter how complicated, can be produced literally at the speed of light by laser-cutting the labels; even with perforations. In addition, multiple SKU or versions of the same label can be piggybacked to take advantage of volume pricing.

Do you have a new label project but don’t where to start? Our trained staff are here to guide you through the entire label design process. From label and adhesive material selection, to optional artwork design assistance, and free digital proofs, we make the process easy!

Some examples of digital print jobs are:

  • High Color Labels
  • Short to Medium Runs
  • Unique Shapes
  • Test Production Runs
  • Durable Labels
  • Promotional Labels

Real Value for Mobile Label Printing

The Zebra P-series and Intermec PB-series mobile printers are typically clipped to the user’s hip; providing a good portable direct thermal or thermal transfer printing solution. What is commonly overlooked is the exorbitant cost of consumables? Based on a recent query we found companies paying 10 TIMES more for the exact same labels and ribbons vs. a desktop label printer.

For warehouse applications where the user is labeling boxes for a cart or pallet, there is a better alternative! The small footprint CAB EOS1 and EOS4 have an optional battery pack to print up to 1000 shipping or ID labels per two hour charge. The REAL SAVINGS comes from these printers using industry standard 3” core labels and 1” core ribbons.

 

The printing process can be accomplished by doing the following :

  1. Loading the label formats into the printer and selecting the label/quantity from the screen.
  2. Plugging in a user pre-loaded USB key with the label formats
  3. Sending the print jobs via WLAN or Bluetooth
  4. Plugging in a USB barcode scanner to select and print the label from a work order.

Some of the other benefits of these printers over the “typical” mobile printers are:

  • Much faster printing speeds (up to 5” per second)
  • Optional USB connected accessories: barcode scanner or keyboard
  • All wear or replacement parts are easily installed in the field.
