Label Cementers are gluing machines used for gluing paper labels, and apply a thin layer of adhesive to the back surface of a paper label. These gluing machines can be used for the application of water base adhesive such as vegetable glue, PVA and EVA resin cement, and casein glue. They are designed for fast glue application and easy cleanup, and are ideal for labeling short runs.
The MS label cementing machine has a stainless steel coating roller and glue tank, and has a simple dial control to set the glue application thickness. The dial adjusts the position of a doctor blade that wipes excess glue off the coating roller and returns it to the glue tank.This allows precision adjustment of adhesive coating thickness. To clean the machine the entire coating head is removed, and can be soaked in the cleanup tank provided with the machine. The glue tank is sealed with a tight fitting cover while the coating head is off.
The MS label cementer is great for gluing paper labels and can apply glue to a label up to approximately .020 thick.
Typical application is found in gluing labels for wineries, breweries, specialty foods, paints, cleaning solutions, chemicals, and agricultural products. This machine can also be used for gluing warehouse routing sheets and application of glue to decorative product labeling. Because the machine is so easy to clean, it is ideal for application in short run labeling.
The MS label cementer offers a real option to pressure sensitive labeling, and has the following advantages:
Cost of gluing a label is only 1/4 to 1/3 the cost of a pressure sensitive label.
Short run and special labels can be produced inexpensively and run through the MS label cementer for gluing. There is no need to print large quantities of a custom label on pressure sensitive stock. A label can even be made on an inkjet printer, and glue applied with the MS label cementer.
If the label is a crooked or out of position when applied, it can be straightened before the glue sets. This cannot be done with a pressure sensitive label.
