This integrated feature lets printers work in sync with the labeler to ensure accurate code placement. The result? Easy label customization you can turn on or off.

• Depending on your needs, this machine can be used for in-line automatic or semi-automatic applications.


• The production preset function means the machine automatically stops once the predetermined quantity of products has been labeled.

• The label count feature lets you precisely track progress at any point during the production run.

• The container/production run counter lets you see the exact production number for the day.

• The PL-501 features a touchscreen control system with job memory. So, even after the machine sits idle for long periods, you benefit from a battery-free microprocessor control system that stores default settings. Up to 30 settings can be stored for future use, so you don’t have to waste time re-entering the necessary information.


• The auto label-set feature confirms label sensitivity by detecting the separation between each label. With one push of a button, labeling is efficiently set up and positioned correctly.

• The missing label-detect feature locates missing labels on the roll stock, and instantly shuts the machine down if one is found. This preventative feature ensures each product is labeled appropriately.


• The PL-501’s controls are fully synchronized, ensuring that all components run at the same speed.

• By essentially counting the “steps” necessary to reach the next label, the PL-501’s stepper motors ensure fast, accurate label delivery.
