Weber Packaging and NuLabel team up to present less downtime and zero waste-to-landfill labeling solution.

The new model 5500LF LinerFree label printer-applicator from Weber Packaging Solutions uses breakthrough adhesive activation technology from NuLabel to dispense, cut-to-to-size and apply linerless labels.

The new system uses a standard tamp-blow applicating method, whereby the specially-coated dry adhesive material is activated using NuLabel’s proprietary, formulated water-based solution that contains no solids and evaporates almost immediately before being attached to the product.

By eliminating the need for a traditional pressure-sensitive liner, the pre-coated roll can hold twice the amount of labels—resulting in less downtime and a ‘zero waste-to-landfill solution,’ according to the companies.

Equipped with a robust Zebra ZE-500 print engine that can operate in thermal-transfer or direct thermal mode, the 5500LF system also features browser-based monitoring, numerous I/O’s for connection to external devices, one-to-one media consumption (for thermal-transfer mode), and durable construction to withstand harsh industrial environments.
