Printing and Labelling systems

Thermo-transfer labelling machines

Discover the whole range

Unsurpassed versatility and compact design. The 7000 series is the right solution when great application flexibility is required and the highest demands are placed on labelling system. Whether for text, barcodes, 2D codes or graphics – top quality applies across the board. Reliable and safe – with thermal transfer printing technology.

Print widths 54, 108 and 162 mm

Three printing widths are available for different applications.

Standard handling

Consisting of two pneumatic movements for the separation stroke and pressure stroke. Any pressure stroke up to 350 mm can be selected. The labelling stamp is designed for a flat labelling surface.

Handling systems with three or more movements

The labelling stamp is adapted to the respective product surface, e.g. for curved surfaces or for "across-corner" labelling.

End of labelling early warning

  • Sensor for monitoring the label roll diameter
  • Enables short machine downtimes for changing the roll

Label centring unit

  • Pneumatic unit for exact alignment of the label on the labelling stamp 
  • For precise label application, e.g. with PCE membranes 
  • Centring jaws are non-stick coated

Vacuum stamp – quick change unit

  • tool-free setup possible
  • integrated feedthrough
  • exact locking via sliding bolts
  • unambiguous assignment with RFID system
