Application types

Direct apply labelling

Direct apply is a unique on-demand labelling method that allows accurate label placement without the need for an applicator, ensuring it uses no expensive compressed air. This method enables the Vulcan Plus to reach speeds of up to 150 PPM without ever missing a pack and is ideal for a wide range of applications and industries.

Corner wrap labelling

Perfect for companies that require a single label to be applied across adjacent panels of a case or shrink-wrapped product, allowing the label to be seen from two directions. The label is applied to the trailing corner of a target product using the Direct Apply printing method, unique to the Vulcan Plus print and apply labeller.

Front of pack labelling

Ideally suited for cases or shrink-wrapped products requiring the label to be applied to the front of a moving pack. The label is applied using a robust, pneumatically controlled arm applicator that uses integrated pack detection and applicator home/extended sensor functionality to ensure accurate label placement every time.

Tamp labelling applicator

Tamp application enables the ICE Vulcan Plus to automatically print and apply labels onto boxes of varying heights. This is particularly common in the e-commerce sector where a range of packages need an address label printing accurately at speed. The Vulcan Plus is able to seamlessly match the speed of the production line, including accounting for stop-start motion.

Industry Applications


The ICE Vulcan Plus Print and Apply Labeller has print speeds that can reach over 120ppm with a label capacity of 17,000 labels, more than twice the capacity of other labelling systems. Perfect for labelling secondary packaging for beverage.
