Semi automatic applicator
The Marte is available in 2 versions. The Marte100 is a semi automatic bench dispenser with manual product positioning, designed
for elliptic, flat, concave products. The label is applied in automatic mode with a pneumatic piston. Flag labels or labels for electric/
mechanical products can be applied whenever precise labelling is required.
The Marte 140 is a semi-automatic dispenser for low/average output, for the application of wrap-around or semi wraparound labels on
cylindrical products between 20mm and 150mm diameter.
Linerless Print & Apply labelling

HM range
Models: Linerfree
60% more labels on each roll
The HM Linerfree® system reduces waste and increases
productivity by printing and applying self adhesive labels without
a liner.
Already well established in the food industry, the machine has
been specially designed, using non stick surfaces, so the label only
sticks to the product, not the applicator. It can be integrated into
a packing system using a pneumatic adapter.
Labels can be applied on the top, bottom, sides or around
corners, and with 60% more paper on the same roll diameter
as conventional labels, the system requires fewer roll changes,
making more production time available to the operator. Several
printers (including thermal transfer and hot stamping) can be
attached for print & apply labelling.

• Greater efficiency and reduced downtime – ability to change
  labels or products without changing the roll
• Print speed – of 50-203mm/sec, and dispensing speed of 25m/
  min (option to increase to 50m/min)
• Flexible – no pre-printing or pre-cutting of labels required
• Improved label quality – paper is coated to improve water
  resistance and durability compared with conventional thermal
• Modular system - 3 different applicator options
• RFID compatible

• Top, bottom and all round labels
• Typically used for carton or pallet labelling

Pallet labelling
Dispenser for round-the-clock operation
The pallet labeller is a flexible applicator featuring an integrated
Datamax A Class industry printer. The system has the capacity to apply
labels to various pallet sizes, as well as options for side, front, back
and corner labelling applications.

• High level integration – with Ethernet allowing remote centralised
  control and ERP systems coupled with MCL software
• Internal electronics – with no external control boxes or cabling
• Robust – built for 24 hour operation
