Budget FLEXibility.

The Panther FLEX

Introducing the NEW Panther FLEX – the economical and FLEXible pre-printed label applicator. Built for ultimate affordability and versatility, the entire system is engineered around a reconfigurable backbone that allows for horizontal, vertical, or custom orientations – perfect for your specific application or spatial requirements.

The FLEX provides the ultimate FLEXibility, both for your operations and your budget.

Key Features

  • Reconfigurable to fit within tight/small spaces
  • Feed speeds up to 18 IPS
  • Dual automation options (full or semi)
  • Zero waste pneumatics – only uses air during operation
  • Improved label drive system for easy load capability
  • Remote mounted control box w/ 4″ touch screen display
  • Movable gap sensor for easy label calibration

The FLEX is engineered to be manufactured in either a horizontal or vertical orientation to provide a perfect fit within your specific environment.

And, with either orientation, the FLEX has been engineered to allow the backbone of the system to be extended so the applicator can apply labels from greater distances, if needed.
