Smaller Is The Big News.

The Panther P5c

Our new P5c labeling system is designed to be the smallest, simplest, and most cost-effective automated print and apply solution available. Based upon our highly acclaimed Panther P8 architecture, the P5c is a right-sized, minimal investment labeling system designed for tight locations.

The P5c fits where no other system can, while utilizing an industry standard 8″ supply roll.

Key Features

  • Small footprint for easy integration
  • Intentionally designed fit for custom machine builders
  • Dual automation options (full or semi)
  • Label drive assist (takeup motor assists the print engine in driving the label material, substantially reducing wear on the print engine)
  • Zero waste pneumatics – only uses air during operation
  • Remote mounted touch screen display
  • OEM print engine design for off-the-shelf replacement





Pneumatic Labeling Automation System

Small footprint for compact spaces. Multiple mounting configurations available (T-base stand shown).

Remote-mounted 7” touch screen display allows for flexible placement options.

Zero waste pneumatics – only uses air during operation.

    Applicator Configurations

    The applicators shown below illustrate the standard configurations available for the Panther P5c. For more information about our applicators, or to view sample videos or other labeling automation applicator options, visit our configurations page.

    Brush or wrap options that directly applies a pre-printed label to a product or carton.

    A straight tamp, linear applicator for top and side label applications.

    For delicate applications where direct contact of the product is not ideal (e.g., food or light objects).

    Front/Rear Swing
    For front or back label applications, also configurable for top-apply labeling.

    Swing Arm
    Applies labels to a front or side location (or separately to both front and side), around a corner, or around a cylindrical/non-flat object.

    Inverted Table Top
    A semi-automated process where items are labeled individually.

    Panther Industries has the expertise to design custom applicator options that do not fit into our standard configurations.
