Features of the Label Pro® 5.5
Fast, neat, compact, and trouble-free, the Label Pro® 5.5 is available in manual or electric models. The manual model starts when the operator places the label in position and pushes a black rubber feed roller to run the label through the equipment, whereas, the electric model starts automatically when the operator feeds the label into the gluer. The electric Label Pro® 5.5 is available with a 120- or 220-volt motor. The motor typically stops one second after the label exits to reduce wear and tear as well as increase the pot life of the adhesive.
The standard Label-Pro® applies a corduroy pattern of glue to the back of the label resulting in double the number of labels glued per gallon versus a solid glue pattern. A corduroy pattern of adhesive is applied across the entire label, reducing adhesive consumption by up to 50%. Generally, the Label Pro® 5.5 Label Gluer is most efficient for short to medium run labeling jobs and exceptionally great for applying glue to labels for application to cartons, cans or bottles.
Key Benefits of the Label Pro® 5.5 include:
- Thin film with no glue oozing from the edge of the label.
- Ideal for short runs and special jobs.
Depending on the adhesive, if the label is crooked or out of position when applied, it can be straightened before the glue sets. To apply larger labels up to 13" wide, check out the Captain B Label Gluer.
