P&A System

- Label dispenser. Is the main body, that incorporates all the other important components. It’s composed by the label roll unwinder, the backing paper rewinder, and all the electronic boards.

- Mechanical robustness. All the elements are mounted over an aluminium plate of 15mm thickness, it’s translated into a big strength over extreme working conditions.

- Label driving & guiding elements have been designed in anodized aluminium so they offer the maximum guarantees of reliability and durability in industrial environments.

Big label rolls capacity. It permits label rolls of diameters of 400 mm  it’s translated into a higher autonomy and reduce the time that the line is stopped due the change of the label roll.

More capacity  low cost & time

Dynamical control of the backing paper rewinder

+ Automatization  - Mantainance

Easy applicator replacement..

Touchscreen: it permits to control the state of the machine and configure it to adapt the machine to the production changes.

  • Available with:

    • 4’’ width.

    • Applicators: Linear, Frontal, FAN, Blow & Shift

    • Not available for pallets.

    • Printer modules: SATO Lt 408  reduced capabilities: Not standard OEM, 203 dpi, Max print speed 150 mm/sec.

  • Roll diameter: max of 300 mm.

    • Low cost materials (plastic).

  • Compared with the MLP (SP or Plus) it has limited electronics capabilities:

    • Less inputs and outputs

    • Less communications channels.

    • Display is mounted on the chasis.

MLA 5000/8000 System SP

Applying system for prepinted label.

It reaches 25 m/min.

Two MLA labeling systems: SP and PR. The PR model can integrate a built in Datamax printer.

Versión SP

Versión PR

  • The PR version has a built in label accumulator that allows you to separate the speed of the line from the printing time.

  • Thanks to the accumulator we will get a faster system with a higher quality of printing.



Alarm indicators. The printer is already prepared in order to display a signal when the label roll and /or the ribbon is finishing.

Lost label sensor(Models with Pad). If during the labeling process , the system is loosing the label , the system is generating an alarm, avoiding that the product come out of the production line without the identification label.

- Pneumatic maintenance Kit . The printer can be installed with a pneumatic maintenance kit that includes: manual valve, filter and air pressure regulator. The main propose of the kit is to keep the air circuit clean of water and oil, in order to prevent faults in the pneumatic circuit of the system

- beacons alarm Kit. This Alarm kit provide the real status of the system with three different colors

- Emergency stop. The printer can be complemented with an external emergency stop button, that can be installed in a convenient place for the operator.


There are 3 different standard stands:

  • Basic: Without regulation.

  • Vertical regulation.

  • Vertical & Horizontal regulation.

Machine’s Hand

  • The hand of the machine can be deduced by placing yourself in front of the machine: in front of the printer display and the rollers. In this situation:

  • if the label is printed from right to left  the machine is a RIGHT HAND.

  • if the label is printed from left to right  the machine is a LEFT HAND.

Left hand

Right hand

22 cycles/min


  • To apply labels while the product is moving.

  • Label is applied by contacting the extreme of the PAD with the product and the rest is shifted/dragged.

The label is maintained on the PAD through the FANs suction.

Faster than conventional systems

It permits to print while is applying the previous label so the productivity is increased.

Air pressure: low consumption

Big label length: 300 mm and more.

Inverted FAN.

Different label sizes allowed.



  • Label is applied by an air blowing system.

  • There’s no contact with the product.

High speed labeling system: there are no application times to add

It permit to apply labels over curving surfaces.


  • - Labels are applied by shifting and dragging them over the product.

  • Labels are buffered so the applied label is not the last printed one.

High application precision.

Printing seped is independent from the applying speed:

Labels buffered  adaptation to production speed fluctuations.


Several applicator



  • It applies the label at 90º from the printing point.

  • The applicator arm permits to apply at the front or rear side of the product.

  • The product can be stopped or moving.

Polyvalent PAD. Different label dimensions allowed.

Mechanical strength.

Huge blowing capacity.

Applicator length it has to be measured from the machine’s edge until the center of the PAD.




Productivity depends on the label length.


  • - This version allows to print and apply 2 labels onto a static pallet within 25 seconds.

  • This applicator is composed by several cylinders that they are synchronized to reach both faces of the pallet.


  • - MACSA has developed an innovative system to apply labels over pallets to reach the higher needs of the market  it doubles the production of the pneumatic version.

  • This applicator is composed of a robotized arm and controlled through servomotors. It permits to apply 3 o 4 labels per pallet: front & back & side.

  • It permits to apply a label on any pallet position within the same height.

  • Huge reduction of application times.


- The same applicator can apply 2 label with one pallet stop or 4 labels with 2 stops.

High speed. Due to the advanced and precise control mode, this system can reach a production of 300 pallets / hour (2 labels per pallets)

Special PAD: adaptation to irregular surfaces.

Depending on the conveyor speed, the application can be performed while the pallet is moving  big productivity increase !!!

Robotized applicator.
