SA100 Automatic Pallet Label Applicator


Maximum Control

The SA100 Automatic Pallet Label Applicator is designed to print and apply labels to the side of a pallet load. The machine is controlled by a PLC, which can communicate with the conveyor, stretch wrapper, and palletizer to ensure proper product handling during the labeling sequence. Full diagnostic reports and communication tracking are available, making troubleshooting easy.

Reliable Label Application

Barcode labels are printed using a Zebra® Xi-Series industrial tabletop printer and are applied to the pallet load by a 20-in (51 cm) variable stroke slide-cylinder tamp assembly. A label on platen sensor verifies label placement before application resulting in fewer dropped labels. The spring-loaded tamp-pad adapts to the pallet load surface.

Built to Last

The rugged PHD® slide-cylinder, heavy-duty stand, NEMA 12 UL listed industrial controls enclosure, and other high quality commercial parts help ensure that the SA100 will handle the rigors of 24/7 pallet load labeling.
