Labeling Systems : Vacuum grid roll-on label applicator
Designed for controlled labeling on irregular surfaces, the Model 40.31 Vacuum Grid Roll-on Applicator from Labeling Systems, Inc., a division of Pro Mach, uses a vacuum grid plate to hold the label prior to label application to accurately label a product or carton even when the product speed exceeds the dispense speed of the labeling head.

The applicator design can be specified as dispensing in-line (to the direction of product flow), reverse flow (opposite direction of product flow), or 90 degrees to product flow, making the applicator appropriate for a range of labeling applications.
Capable of being used as a stand alone labeling head or part of a turnkey system, the Model 40.31 is suitable for any production environment. The compact design allows the head to sit below the conveyor minimizing the machine’s overall footprint.
