EPI MFlex™ Modular Pressure-Sensitive Label Applicator System
Drawing upon the legacy of EPI's M-Series applicator and engineering expertise, the MFlex™ is a completely new, modular, and flexible system comprised of a label applicator and integrated product handling solution, with the primary purpose of applying pressure-sensitive labels to a variety of packages and products.
Engineered to fit seamlessly into your new or existing production line, the MFlex accurately and reliably applies pressure sensitive labels to a wide range of items: bottles, tapered items, non-round upright items, clamshells, trays, and more.
The MFlex can be configured to cover a variety of label placements. Whether you are needing to label the top or bottom of your item (or both), or wrap a label around the leading edge, the MFlex features faster dispense speeds, accurate label placement, and system modularity for fast and efficient troubleshooting, service, or maintenance in your operations.
For even greater integration and flexibility in your production line, upgrade to the MFlex Pro to incorporate a PLC for inspection, reject, serialization, and communication options.
