The main methods of application are three: contact application, air jet and contact piston. The first uses a roller or a brush, when the product exceeds the dispensing edge, which applies the label in contact, separating it from the silicone. Eidos DISPENSER is a simple and cheap applicator able to dispense labels on moving objects as fast as it overprint. The second method uses a controlled jet of compressed air, it is ideal for fragile products. Eidos Static-Blow e Tamp-Blow applicator are suitable for high cadence applications on moving objects, even at high speed and also on not perfectly flat areas.
The last method uses a pneumatic piston with linear or rotary motion to apply the label, it is excellent with flat surface objects. The Eidos LINEAR series applicator apply a label on side or on high side of boxes that are still in an adaptive way with respect to the distance of the box. The piston stroke can have different lengths to cover a wide variety of applications. The size of the label can vary from 30 cm of the BIG-LABEL model to less than one centimeter of the MICRO model, where a particular mechanism allows the pad to go, on the silicone paper and with high precision, the label just printed. The label is then applied to the object with equal high precision. Eidos ROTOR series applicators apply one or two labels on the sides of boxes, even when moving. The light pad of the ROTOR FAST model is suitable for high speed operation on stationary or moving boxes.
The EIDOS solutions allow the application of large labels on one or more sides of the pallet, on moving boxes and bundles, on objects and industrial products.
