Blank labels for the subsequent inscription with variable data
The blank labels are plain labels which can be subsequently inscribed with individual data directly at the customer’s site. The labels will be adjusted to the customer-specific requirements and applications and often serve the management, control and tracking of materials and products by encoding.
The main features of plain labels
- High resistance in outdoor applications and in the area of chemicals and solvents
- High abrasion resistance with suitable thermal transfer ribbons for the thermal transfer printing
- Suitable for standard-compliant labeling like e.g. UL/CSA, ATEX, FMVSS, FDA etc.
- Very high adhesive power of the labels also to difficult substrates
- Optimization of the processes by automation of material- and product flow
- Additional safety features like e.g. security cutouts are possible
- Over 500 special materials by Avery, 3M, Flexcon, and Tesa available from stock
- Plain labels in individual formats and special forms
Functions and advantages – precisely tailored to your requirements for the labeling
The blank labels offer the best possible flexibility and will be adjusted individually to the customer’s requirements. This happens by using suitable special materials of leading manufacturers, individual die‑cutting forms and premium adhesives.
The labels can be imprinted directly as required in variable amounts with current data at the site, by that the storage and the management of numerous labels may be reduced or dropped.
Some of the materials and products to be labeled are still hot when the labels shall be adhered. Other products can also have a very rough or dusty or oily surface, which can be safely labeled with matching adhesives.
Our upscale and accurate processing with most modern die-cutting technologies guarantees the highest precision and reliability for the application of hologram labels. Thus even plain labels with adhesives which are difficult to process can be processed mechanically very well, which increases the user efficiency in the long term.
