APPLICATIONS FOR LABEL DISPENSERS
Label dispensers are devices built to make easy the tasks of working with rolls of labels. They are designed to group the rolls and dispense the labels one by one, peeling them off their sticky paper. Basically there are two big groups of dispensers, manual and electric ones. The first group is completely mechanical and has no sophisticated devices. Normally, manual label dispensers are designed to work with people. On the other hand, electric dispensers have various electrical gadgets, like all sorts of sensors and electric engines. Electric label dispensers of course are much more expensive than their manual counterparts. Electric dispensers are designed to work in industrial applications where precision and speed is of utmost relevance. This kind of dispensers can work before the printers to provide them with labels continually and without interruption. Rolls of labels run uninterruptedly from the dispensers to the printers. These applications are normally found on printing corporations of barcode labels. They normally print the barcode labels for thousands of manufactured products and sell the printed labels. To do this, they need to print the labels continually to obtain an optimal performance of their hardware. This is why they need the label dispensers. Companies that need to print labels just from time to time normally do not invest in dispensers because it would be a pointless expense. Electric label dispensers are also useful because they measure tension on the rolls of labels, thus avoiding the roll to suffer from breakouts when the printers retrieve them. This is very important to maintain a continuous printing operation, because delays cost a lot. The cost is not exactly in the materials to be replaced but in the time that takes for those items to be replaced and have the total printing line back to work again. This is why companies invest in tools to avoid these issues.
