Type of Labeling


Label dispensing

Peeling of the labels / die-cut parts over a defined peel edge. Usually the liner material is pulled over a peel edge with a set tension, which causes the label to release from the liner.



Label Application

The labels / die-cut parts are first dispensed and transferred with onto an application support (i.e. tamp) where it is held in place by a vacuum. Then the label is applied to the product.

Different Types of Label Application:

Dispensing without applicator:

Direct labeling onto the product; mostly during continuous product movement (wipe-on); medium positioning tolerance.

Dispensing with applicator:

Label is applied with application fixture (i.e. tamp); usually intermittent product movement; high positioning tolerance.


true label applicators process preprinted labels;

print & apply systems process in-line printed labels
