Full Description

AP360 Label Applicator

Primera’s AP-Series Label Applicators are the perfect semi-automatic labeling solution for cylindrical containers as well as many tapered containers, including bottles, cans, jars and tubes. Set-up and operation is fast and easy:

  1. Set the guides
  2. Place your container in the machine
  3. Press the footswitch and your label is applied

The built-in spring-loaded pressure arm makes sure labels are applied firmly and without wrinkles.

Apply Labels Fast and Accurately

With an AP-Series Label Applicator you’ll be able to apply labels at speeds of up to 1200 per hour. Labels are perfectly applied without wrinkles, giving your finished products a highly professional look. AP-Series Label Applicators are an ideal accessory to Primera’s LX- or CX-Series label printers. The applicators can also apply roll-fed, pressure-sensitive labels produced by most other flexographic, offset and digital presses.

AP360 is the base model. It quickly and efficiently applies single labels at a time. 

AP362 is an advanced model. It can apply one or two different labels to a single container. A built-in LED counter and memory for up to nine front-to-back label offsets is also included.

Features:

  • Accurately applies labels to the front (AP360) or front and back (AP362) with variable spacing
  • Quick set-up and easy operation

FAQs

1. What are the prices of the applicators?

AP360: $1,495 (MSRP), factory direct price is $1,350

AP362: $1,795 (MSRP), factory direct price is $1,595

AP550: $2,495 (MSRP), factory direct price is $2,250

 

2. What are the main differences between the three applicators?

  • Types of containers

a. AP360 and AP362: Cylindrical (able to roll in a straight line – bottles, jars, etc.) Let us test your container if it is not completely round, or if it is tapered.

b. AP550

  • Flat Surfaces (boxes, filled pouches, flat faced containers/bottles, etc.) Watch the AP550 container video http://www.primeralabel.com/ap550_features.html.
  • If container does not sit firmly on the platform (odd/round back, small container) refer to the container holding kit. This kit is great for odd-shaped, small containers. Let us test to see if it works better with, or without the kit.
  • Empty pouches or slim containers need to be placed on some type of additional platform to raise the container, as the applicator’s neck will hit the edge of the platform if the container is too thin. Books, wood, foam, etc. are great additions to raise the container.
  • Number of labels applied

a. AP360 and AP550: 1 label at a time

b. AP362: 2 - Front and back label (labels need to alternate front and back on roll)

  • Speed

a. AP360 and AP362: 1200 containers/hour (semi-automatic – operator has to load container,  so this really depends on the operator of the machine as well)

b. AP550: 500/hour (semi-automatic – operator has to load container, so this really depends on     the operator of the machine as well)

 

3. What types of materials can be used?

Any of the materials we stock can be used on the applicators. If you have another material that we do not carry, we suggest testing the material on the machine to make sure it works.

 

4. What is the minimum/maximum width labels (including liner) can be?

 

AP360 and AP362: 1” to 9.4”

AP550: .875” to 4.125”

 

5.  How does the applicator know when to apply my label?

AP360/362: Uses a physical sensor that moves based on the thickness of the material to sense the label and gap.

AP550:Uses an optical sensor.  This is important when using a clear material as it would require the black registration mark on the back of the material vs. the AP360/362 which does not require this. 

             

6. Do you offer any financing?

Yes! We have a relationship with PayPal where our products now qualify for their “Bill Me Later” program. It works like this: we write up a proforma invoice for your purchase. You submit it to PayPal for approval. Once approved, you can purchase the equipment from us and get 6 months of interest-free financing. The down-payment amount and monthly payment amount is figured out between you and PayPal. You’ll need to either already have or open a new PayPal account to use this financing.

             

7.  How large can the outer diameter of the label roll be?

Up to 8” (all applicators)

              

8.   What is the minimum/maximum size of the containers I can label?

AP360 and AP362: 1” to 9.4” wide - .6” to 6.7” diameter

AP550: .002” to 8” high –  Platform size: max 12”wide x 12.2” long (So container could be longer or wider, but label may not be placed where they want it to if it’s too long or wide)

 

9. How do I make sure my label is placed exactly where I want it?

AP360: There are guides that move back and forth to ensure your container does not move when applying the label. This also ensures the label is applied without wrinkles.

AP362: Make sure your front and back labels are alternating on the roll. Measure the spacing you would like between the front and back label on the container. You can set this measurement on the machine and save it in the “mode” settings, so you only have to set the measurement one time, for each container. Place your container in the base, and press the foot switch. The front and back labels will be applied by hitting the foot switch only one time.

AP550: The platform underneath the application mechanism can be moved forward and back with the + and – buttons. You can save the setting of the platform for the particular container in the “mode” settings so you only need to set the placement for the container one time.

 

10.  How many settings can I save? (AP360 does not have this feature, as it’s not needed to apply one label)

AP362: Up to 9 settings (spacing between front and back label)

AP550: Up to 9 settings (platform location)

 

11. On AP550, what is the “Container Holder Kit” used for?

If your container to be labeled is an odd shape or would move around on the metal platform, we suggest you buy this kit. With it, you can quickly and easily mold a fixture to hold the container perfectly in place, helping to insure that every label will be perfectly applied.

Whats in the Box
AP360 includes a power cord and power adapter, label roll bar and guides, and an Operator's Guide.
