So, which one is right for your business? Find out more about the functionality of each type of labelling machine to help you make an informed decision based on your business needs.
Industrial Labelling Machines: Features and Benefits
Industrial labelling machines allow for the full automation of labelling processes, including label design, label printing, label application, barcode application and more. They can process many items in a short space of time and offer cutting-edge labelling technology that is reliable and versatile.
There are various types of industrial labelling machine you can add to your production line:
- Label applicators. These machines can apply labels to the top, bottom, and sides of products, as well as wrapping labels around them.
- Print apply systems. Available with integrated label design software, versatile print apply machines can label up to 150 packs per minute.
- C/D wrap labelling machines. Applying wrap labels with no need to rotate packs, C/D wrap labelling machines offer a sophisticated industrial-scale solution.
Weigh Price Labellers: Features and Benefits
Automatic weigh price labellers are used to label packaged products that are priced according to their weight. They are suitable for use with a wide range of products, and they are highly efficient, accommodating weights up to 80kg and labelling up to 140 packs per minute.
Weigh price labellers can fully automate all weighing and labelling processes and come complete with conveyors and, where required, multiple printers and various controls. As with other labelling machines, they can also be suitable for use in an industrial environment where integrated weighing and labelling processes are necessary.
Choosing Between an Industrial Labelling Machine and a Weigh Price Labeller
One of the key differentiators between industrial labelling machines and weigh price labellers is the ability to label items based on their weight. If items are a standard weight or size, or if weighing takes place at a different stage of production, then an industrial labelling machine such as an automatic label applicator or a print apply machine is likely to offer everything you need. If you are looking for an all-in-one solution that allows products to be weighed, then labelled according to their weight, a weigh price labeller is going to deliver the right functionality for you.
Some machines offer additional flexibility and different elements can be integrated to deliver the ideal system for your business. C/D wrap labellers, for example, can be integrated into weigh price systems to offer a fully automatic weighing and wrap labelling setup.
