The AP550 is a semi-automatic label applicator that makes it fast and easy to precisely apply product and identification labels onto a wide range of flat surfaces such as rectangular or tapered bottles, boxes, packages, bags, pouches, lids, tins and much more. Labels are applied straight without wrinkles or folds in exactly the location desired. This gives finished products a highly professional look and significantly increases the number of containers that can be labeled per hour versus manually applying labels.
Operation is simple: place the container in the mechanism and pull the arm to the container and the label is automatically applied.
- Variable spacing
- Memory for up to nine jobs
- Counter with built-in LED display.
- Apply up to 500 labels per hour.
- No air compressor needed.
No air-pressure supply is required which can be a significant advantage over other label applicators that require expensive, noisy and maintenance-prone air compressors.
Apply Labels Fast and Accurately
With an AP550 Flat-Surface Label Applicator you'll be able to apply labels at speeds of up to 500 per hour. Labels are perfectly applied without wrinkles, giving your finished products a highly-professional appearance.
The AP550 is the perfect accessory for labels produced by Primera's popular LX- and CX-Series color label printers and digital label presses. Together, they provide a complete print-and-apply solution that's ideal for a wide range of small to medium-sized businesses. Roll printed labels by other methods such as flexographic, offset and thermal transfer can also be applied with the applicator. (For round containers such as bottles, cans and jars, Primera also offers its top-selling AP360 and AP362 Label Applicators- see the links in the left margin.)

Rewinders and Core Size Change: When labels are printed in any large quantity, as they are printed, they are automatically wound into a new roll using a "rewinder" (sold separately). The AP-Series applicators require a minimum supply roll core of 2" from the rewound labels, so it doesn't matter what the original roll core was (i.e., Zebra desktop models have up to .5" to 1.5" cores, but they can be rewound to larger cores).
