Labels for all Applications
As your coding and labelling partner, we have the experience to provide the highest quality thermal transfer labels designed to keep your Vulcan Print and Apply Labeller running effectively. Most applications have bespoke equipment and label requirements, so we work closely with you to determine the most effective solution based on individual application parameters such as label size, permanency and plain or custom design.
The specification of the labels we supply has been carefully matched to the OEM supplied thermal transfer ribbon during the development stages of the technology to ensure optimum performance, namely speed and print quality capabilities of the Vulcan are achieved.
When combined with the ICE200 grade thermal transfer ribbon, unique to the print and apply market and more than 100% longer than traditional machines, our labels are proven to be the best solution, allowing extended production runs with less frequent label changeover.
The adhesive options supplied depend on the application of the product which determines the durability and level of hold required. The application may require the label to have a long life or permanent adhesion particularly where the end product has to endure long journeys and harsh environments, sustain durability in deep freeze situations or needs to be removed at a later date. By qualifying the label lifetime, we can determine the correct adhesive required for each prior to planning production.
Industrial labels need to withstand many conditions including resistance to external factors such as oils, chemicals, heat, moisture, abrasion and weathering. The labels we supply are hard wearing, suitable for the demanding environments of the varied applications of our customers.
The Vulcan technology prints and applies labels directly to secondary packaging, such as boxes, cases and shrink wrapped packs in one continuous action. It prints at a speed to match the packaging line without ever missing a pack, regardless of line throughput, build back and pack size.
Matched with the ICE200 grade thermal transfer ribbons, the labels we supply have a unique surface coating to produce excellent print quality and durability when printing variable data on demand at the high speeds required.
Whether it is a standard plain white label or something more bespoke that is needed, we have experience providing customer solutions.
Options such as colour washes to enable overprinting of logos and unique data such as QR and barcodes in house, custom designs with colour boxes printed to enable standardised label supply for variable data or digitally printed labels for smaller volumes and short production runs are available.
Partnered with the leading manufacturers in the UK, we have access to many standard cutter sizes which enables us to offer very competitive pricing across these and bespoke label requirements and our stock holding facility ensures economies of scale are applied.
We pride ourselves on delivering a personal service to all of our customers by understanding and identifying the correct label specification for each individual application and providing cost effective pricing based on planned production.
Our in-house print sample lab can produce and print samples on different substrates in order to test for code clarity and consistency and ensure that the most appropriate label and ribbon is selected for each individual application.
As standard, we can provide labels from stock for next day delivery with a quick turnaround for new projects and applications.
