Protecting your Investment

Whether it is a $8 bottle of super glue or $75,000 labeling system, we recommend reading the below suggestions for extending the life of your product or asset!

Surge Protector

No matter where you work, bad weather, “brownouts” or power surges are inevitable.  Most consider a power strip sufficient, but in reality ALL equipment should be plugged into a surge protector.  This protects the main electrical components which are typically expensive to replace.

Adhesives or Labels

For temperature and moisture sensitive products consider the following:

  • Store unopened super glue bottles in a in freezer.  By slowing down the molecules, this will significantly increase shelf life.
  • Keep unopened MMA’s (methacrylates) cartridges in a refrigerator.  This will help extend their short shelf life.
  • Keep blank polypropylene and polyester label rolls in an office temperature controlled environment.  This will eliminate possible adhesive oozing that can release the labels from the liner.

Clean Air for Pneumatic Equipment

Water in air lines is unfortunately also very common!  It can easily be removed by using an aftermarket air purification or inline water separator system.

Maintenance or Repair

Priddy Sales offers several options for preventative maintenance or repair.  These services can be provided onsite or at our facility.  Call 800-275-0828 to discuss the best option with one of our trained technicians!

Synthetic Label Options

For basic labeling applications, a short term paper thermal transfer or direct thermal label is typically sufficient. But what about projects where the label needs to be tear-proof, withstand outside temperatures, resist chemicals, or smudging? The list below outlines our stock synthetic label material options. They are available in blank or printed formats.

  • Polypropylene (BOPP/Kimdura®) – lowest cost synthetic film typically best for indoor consumer products like food, beverage, or “prime” labels.
  • Polyethylene (Valeron®) – a flexible conforming film with excellent chemical resistance often used for labeling bottles.
  • Polyolefin (Tyvek®) – a lower cost film that is extremely flexible; perfect for labeling irregular or reusable containers.
  • Polyester (Mylar®) – high quality rigid film with extreme durability and chemical resistance. Common applications are outdoor, GHS, UL, CSA, “see through” clear, silver, and tamper evidence.

“Spin-in-Place” Labeling System

Whether you call it an encapsulator, spin-in-place, or trap-and-wrap, this technique by Universal Labeling Systems is one of the most consistent ways to automatically apply labels to both cylindrical and conical shapes. The moving product is typically trapped in a three-roller mechanism. The product is then rotated and the label is applied in a synchronous motion.

What are some of the benefits?

  • Increased label placement accuracy versus a standard wrap belt.
  • Great choice for lightweight, flimsy, or smaller diameter bottles.
  • Best option when label orientation to a bottle handle, notch, or seam is required.
  • Labeling speeds up to 60+ bottles per minute.
  • Easily adjustable for straight wall to tapered containers
  • Available in right or left hand line configurations.

Post-Print Options for Label Printers

For most applications, printing and then tearing off the labels from the printer is sufficient. But in many instances this is not the cleanest or most efficient method. Essentially all tabletop sized printers we sell have accessories to help dispense, rewind, apply, or cut and stack labels.

Dispensing – this accessory is used to present the label to the user “pre-peeled” away from the liner. The instant the label is grabbed, the sensor signals the printer to print the next label and the scrap backing is automatically rewound. This is a great option for manually applying labels or sequential ID projects.

Rewinding – by using an internal or external label rewinder, the labels are synchronously rewound onto a 3” ID core. After the print job is complete, the user can take the label roll to another location. This can eliminate the mess and fatigue of having an employee manually rewind the labels by hand.

Applicator – this option is available in a wide variety of forms (tamp, blow, and roll-on) to real-time apply the printed label to a user-delivered product.

Cutter – after each label or tag is printed, they are individually cut. An optional tray
and stacker can also be used to organize the cut media. Common applications are apparel tags, consumer ticketing, automotive labels, and pharmaceuticals.

How do I add or purchase one of these devices?

TEC 3400 Industrial Glue Gun

The ECO-friendly TEC 3400 all electric hot melt glue dispenser was designed as a replacement for the TEC 3200 tool. With 400 watts it can dispense up to 8.25 lbs. of 1 3/4″ (43mm) glue slugs per hour with no air compressor. It is a great lower cost alternative to the Loctite 175 or Henkel Loctite EQ HM22 glue guns!

What are some of the features?

  • The TEC 3400 includes 4 temperature modules ranging from 260 to 420 degrees F
  • Built-in trigger boost to detect when the trigger is pulled frequently, and then boosts power to the heater to meet this increased demand. This allows the
    adhesive to be always applied at the optimum temperature.
  • The micro-controller detects periods of non-use and progressively reduces the temperature of the tool until it is switched off after 2 hours. Simply pulling the trigger resets the tool, which quickly recovers to the set temperature. This feature saves energy, improves tool reliability and is an important safety feature in the work place.
  • The controller also detects various fault conditions and will indicate these with a rapidly flashing indicator. If this occurs the tool will shut down, preventing more serious damage, and ensuring user safety.
  • Standard precision nozzle included, also available
  • Detachable stand for additional portability
