DTM Print tailors AP380e label applicator for round and cylindrical containers

DTM Print, international OEM and solution provider for specialty printing systems, is recommending semi-automatic labelling solutions like the AP-Series label applicators for a consistent look across all packages to help businesses speed up their production.

Having a label applied accurately, precisely and wrinkle-free is important as it elevates the product presentation, a critical factor in driving sales.

The AP380e label applicator is the newest model of the AP-Series. This state-of-the-art applicator is designed to streamline the label application process on round or cylindrical containers, offering increased speeds and new features, making the labelling process faster and more efficient.

With approximately 30% increased speed than the AP360e and AP362e label applicators, it ensures labels are applied swiftly and accurately, providing a seamless finish on a wide variety of containers. The inclusion of a new label liner rewinder further optimises operations by keeping the waste liner material off of the floor and winding it into a roll for easy disposal.

Key features of the AP380e label applicator include:

Precision labelling: The AP380e applies labels with impeccable precision, ensuring a professional appearance for every finished product.

  • Label liner rewinder: the waste liner is rewound as the labels are applied to the container, allowing for less clutter during high-usage periods.
  • Increased speeds: the applicator’s enhanced speed capabilities result in a significant boost in labelling efficiency, allowing for more containers to be labelled per hour.
  • Reliable performance: for detecting the labels, the AP380e is equipped with a mechanical sensor flag which, unlike ultrasonic sensors, can process transparent labels without black marks. This purpose-built sensor flag has been installed in over 38,000 AP-Series applicators and is known for its longevity and reliability with various label types and thicknesses.
  • User-friendly operation: an intuitive design of the AP380e makes it easy to operate.

Lea König, product manager for labelling solutions at DTM Print, summarises the benefits: “The AP380e optimises the production process thanks to the built-in liner rewinder. At the same time, it significantly increases the production throughput. With the AP380e labels are applied flawlessly and reliably, giving the finished products a highly professional appearance.”

The AP380e is an ideal accessory to the label printing and applicator solutions offered by DTM Print, including the LX-Series of desktop colour label printers. It is also compatible with labels produced using various printing methods, such as flexographic, offset and thermal transfer.

The AP380e Label Applicator is priced at €1,795 (MSRP) and available from DTM Print or through authorised DTM Print partners in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

DTM Print offers customers a three-year warranty for AP380e units within the EU, UK and EFTA countries after registering the product on the company website (register.dtm-print.eu). As an additional service DTM Print offers to modify the container rollers for custom containers.
