Primera's label applicators are the perfect semi-automatic label solution for cylindrical containers, as well as conical containers such as bottles, jars, jam jars and tubes.

The setting as well as the operation is very easy:
- Set the guides
- Place your container in the machine
- Press the foot switch and the label is applied.
- Call customer support if you have questions
The AP360e's built-in print arm ensures that labels are applied firmly and without angles (corners).
With the AP-series label applicator you will be able to work faster and more accurately. Thanks to higher working speed, you can produce and sell more products.
Apply labels quickly and accurately with an AP label applicator, speeds up to 1200 labels per hour have been achieved in the lab. Labels are applied without wrinkles and give your product a professional look.
The AP series label applicators are an ideal complement to Primera LX or CX label printers. Of course, you can also use them without a Primera printer with most OFFSET labels or other pre-printed labels.

How many labels can the Primera AP360e apply per hour?
"Fast production: 135 mm/s - this corresponds to the labeling of up to 1200 containers per hour" says the data sheet and of course this also depends decisively on the size of the containers and labels. But the 135mm/s are fixed and what this means for normal 0.5L drinking bottles Primera has now published in a short film! You can see the film as the last video - in the pictures above this description.
The pliability / flexibility / stiffness of the label also plays a role. If the label is too pliable, regardless of thickness, this can be the cause of wrinkling or it will not release from the liner when it comes to the release edge. Polypropylene, polyester and vinyl labels tend to be more flexible than paper labels. If you are not sure if the label is too flexible, we recommend testing this before you decide to purchase a label material or labeler.
Important data to note:
Strength of the face material and adhesive: 127 µ – 381 µ
Thickness of the backing material: 50,8 µ - 254 µ (smoothness of the material influences the feeding - a substrate which is too smooth or too thin can slip through the drive rollers)
Strength of the label material: 5 mil – 15 mil
Container width: 25.4 mm to 238 mm (length or max. height of e.g. bottles)
Your material can be wound outward, or inward - the important thing is the strength! Have it tested free of charge at Karley!
We test for you whether the AP360e is suitable for your products - via video conference
At Karley, we have tested thousands of products with Primera applicators for our customers. You send us your products - as they are to be labeled and also a residual label roll. If you use our label material, of course we do not need any labels from you, only a size specification for the labels and which material. Our technicians will then take your products, place them in the applicators and shoot a small film for you. Alternatively, we can arrange a short video conference with you so that you can see live how your products are tested. This way we can make sure that this combination is suitable for you and our experienced technicians may see directly what problems could occur and what solution we have for you. But please contact us first with a picture, dimensions and weights of your labels. Since we have already tested many products, we can often already give information without this test.
