Smaller Is The Big News

The Panther P5c

Our new P5c labeling system is designed to be the smallest, simplest, and most cost-effective automated print and apply solution available. Based upon our highly acclaimed Panther P8 architecture, the P5c is a right-sized, minimal investment labeling system designed for tight locations.

The P5c fits where no other system can, while utilizing an industry standard 8" supply roll.

Key Features:

  • Small footprint for easy integration

  • Intentionally designed fit for custom machine builders

  • Dual automation options (full or semi)

  • Label drive assist (takeup motor assists the print engine in driving the label material, substantially reducing wear on the print engine)

  • Zero waste pneumatics – only uses air during operation

  • Remote mounted touch screen display

  • OEM print engine design for off-the-shelf replacement

Applicator Configurations

Merge
Brush or wrap options that directly applies a pre-printed label to a product or carton.

Tamp
A straight tamp, linear applicator for top and side label applications.

Blow / Tamp Blow
For delicate applications where direct contact of the product is not ideal (e.g., food or light objects).

Front/Rear Swing
For front or back label applications, also be configurable for top-apply labeling.

Swing Arm
Allows two separate labels applied to a front or side location (or both), around a corner, or around a cylindrical object.

Inverted Table Top
A semi-automated process where items are labeled individually.

Custom Applicators
Panther Industries has the expertise to design custom applicator options that do not fit into our standard configurations.
