Afinia Label to release A200 label applicator

The A200 is a semi-automatic labeller designed for bottles, jars, cans and other cylindrical containers.

Afinia Label has announced its new A200 bottle label applicator will be shipping this month. The semi-automatic label applicator can be deployed for bottles, cans, and cylindrical packaging. Single of front-and-back labels are applied straight, smooth and ideally spaced, thus increasing productivity while delivering a labeled container each and every time.

The A200 features an advanced ultrasonic label sensor, allowing for a wider range of compatibility with thinner label materials than mechanical flag sensors common in other applicators. Round containers can be placed against configurable guides to maintain label placement. Then, with a press of a button or the included foot pedal, labels are dispensed and affixed to the container.

An online calculator tool is also included to “quickly and accurately” determine the necessary values for proper spacing and front and back labels, such as those found on wine bottles. These values can be entered, saved, and recalled with the intuitive LCD display. Up to 10 preset configurations can be saved on the A200.

Mike Atkins, national sales manager for Afinia, explained: “The A200 bottle label applicator is a durable, low-cost solution for our customers needing to increase productivity while maintaining a consistent, professional look for their packaging on the store shelf. This machine saves time and money with simple, consistent, and reliable label application.”

The A200 is compatible with created by Afinia’s L901, L801, L502 and LT5C colour label printers. The company’s digital label finishers – such as the DLF-140s, DLF-220s, and DLF-220L – also create roll labels that can be used with this applicator.
