Label Applicators

Do you need to apply a number of pre-printed labels to your stock, like a "Sale Price" or "Special Offer" label? Is the time and effort needed, a major barrier to doing this? We at Datacol, hope we have found you a solution, at a price that makes the job feasible. Datacol can now offer the full range of Towa label applicators, through our reseller network. 

Towa, with a manufacturing plant in Tokyo, Japan, was founded in 1968. Over the years they have refined and developed their applicators to be "best in class". Every TOWA Label Applicator can dispense virtually any type of label and they require no special liner tool, cartridges or cassettes. 

TOWA Label Applicators use an exclusive label edge detector which automatically detects the leading edge of the label ensuring that your label is dispensed accurately every time. All you have to do, is to wind your labels on to a 25mm core (our LABELMATE MC11 Mini-re-winder does this easily) and then fit your roll of labels into the appropriately sized applicator. (See table below). Press the lever a couple of times, and you're ready to go!

For ALL Towa applicators, the rolls of labels should be:

  • Wound on a 25mm (1") core

  • Core should be no wider than the Max. Backing Paper width (as above)

  • Wound "Face IN" i.e. with labels facing the core

  • Outside diameter should be less than 100mm.
