Labeling Systems

Both reel-to-reel and print-and-apply systems are labeling methodologies, but they serve different purposes and have unique operational characteristics. Here's a breakdown of their differences:

Reel-to-Reel

The reel-to-reel labelling mechanism allows you to simultaneously print, count and rewind label stock (and other reel-fed material). The system easily prints date codes, lot/serial numbers, batch numbers, barcodes, and logos. 

It's is ideal for applications where the labels are subsequently applied by hand to the product, or where the label applicator does not have a coding system.

  • Process: Reel-to-reel labeling involves printing labels on a continuous roll (or reel) of material. Once printed, these labels can be rewound onto another reel for storage or subsequent application.

  • Usage: It's particularly useful when a large volume of labels needs to be printed in batches but might not be applied immediately.

  • Flexibility: It allows for simultaneous printing, counting, and rewinding of label stock.

  • Applications: The system might be preferable for scenarios where labels will be applied manually by operators later or in a different location from where they were printed.

  • Coding: Often used to print date codes, batch numbers, barcodes, logos, etc., in bulk.

Print & Apply

While reel-to-reel focuses on bulk printing and storage of labels for later use, print-and-apply labeling machines integrate both label printing and dispensing functionalities into one unified device. Our advanced label printer applicators streamline the process by autonomously printing and adhering labels onto your items, be it individual products, boxes, or pallets. Recognizing that every production setup is unique, we employ a versatile modular approach to ensure we deliver the best-fit labeling solution tailored to your precise requirements.
