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
