Mini Labeling Systems


“Mini” labelers bridge the gap between simple table top semi-automatic units and fully automated in-line labeling system. Mini doesn’t always refer to product size or capability as these systems can do big jobs.

Mini systems are slightly smaller and simpler systems that provide a great entry point for a company that is just getting established, or that has lower volume requirements or doesn’t have a fully integrated packaging line on which to install a full labeling system. Mini systems also provide a great price point upon which to enter the label application market. Need to hand feed delicate products for labeling? A single operator can usually handle a Mini System by themselves to insure product protection and also to keep labor cost under close control.

And in the end, a Mini System can be integrated with a full packaging line at a later date when needed.

At Griffin-Rutgers we specialize in helping customers find the optimum type of labeling system they need to do the job they face, at an affordable cost point, and at a level of automation that fits their production situation and line speed. Look at our various Mini Labeling Systems below to view:
