Packaging items such as flat cartons that have not yet been erected or filled require an additional system to move them in a fashion that will properly present them to the printer – a “transport system”. Primary product cartons are usually delivered in shipping cases to the location where they will be used. They are packed tightly in flat form into such cases. In order to efficiently print such batches of flat cartons (or individually cut labels, or sleeves, or seed envelopes) these items need to be separated individually from a stack of multiple items, spaced consistently, moved passed the printer, and then be re-collected into an easy to handle stack. That series of steps is the function of a transport system.
Different types of packaging components require differing methods of separation and transport in order to hold each individual piece in proper alignment as it is removed from its stack and transported by the printer so that the printed image is correctly located and aligned with the package art work. A properly matched pair of packaging component and transport system will yield a high throughput of single items that have been properly separated from the original stack, held and aligned during transport, so as to give properly printed results ready to move to the next step of the packaging process.

Applying labels to cartons that are moving at high speed along a packaging line by contacting the carton can create problems for the alignment of the carton and also for the equipment applying the label. The safest way to apply a printed label in this type of situation is to NEVER touch the carton but […]
This video is one of a series that we have posted showing the versatility of the Mini Wrap Labeling System. Be sure to view the others also. This video shows the system applying wrap labels to metal aerosol cans. The Mini Wrap is designed to fill the gap between semi-automatic labeling machines and fully automatic […]
When comparing print and apply labeling systems, two important facets to consider are cost and capabilities. These two mission-critical parameters will ascertain if the unit under consideration will fulfill your distinct business objectives while remaining within your targeted budget. Print and apply labeling systems are ideal for those environments where labels must be printed on pallets or shipping cases as well as primary packaging applications like those within the baking and snack industries. But, all are not created equal.
Re-Pack three roller indexing labeling systems are those designed to “orient a cylindrically shaped item and apply a wrap-around label.” In this labeling process, the label application is accurately aligned to a specific spot on the individual product item. This unique labeling process can be accomplished with a fully automated, in-line system or as an […]
