Next generation Print & Apply Solutions

Streamline your label printing and application with a Label Printer Applicator (LPA). As the Australian market leader for barcode print and apply, Matthews provides the right solution to fit your business. 

An LPA prints onto pressure-sensitive labels then automatically applies those labels to a product, using a pneumatic applicator. LPAs differ from Label Applicators (LAs), which apply pre-printed pressure-sensitive labels.
 
Labels can be thermal direct or thermal transfer labels: thermal direct labels are thermal sensitive, while thermal transfer labels use ribbons to transfer the ink onto the labels. Depending on the application, Matthews will suggest the right type of labels for your business.

Label Printer Applicators in your business

Label Printer Applicators are used for applying human readable and barcode information to many different products, generally cartons or pallets. They can also be used for primary retail products, metal delivery stillages, timber, pipes and steel. 

Because LPAs have excellent print quality, the barcode labels are fully compliant with all GS1 and retailer quality standards.

LPAs are easy-to-use, with integrated software allowing you to program the machine without a PC on the production line e.g. logic programming, such as dates.

Integrating and Networking LPAs

Matthews’ LPAs can be fully networked to iDSnet, our software integration package for easier label design and format change, quick product changeovers and real-time line status monitoring. This enables you to scan or look up a database of product and barcode information, and control peripheral devices, such as barcode scanners and weighing scales. Some LPAs can also print RFID Smart Labels.

With well over 1,000 LPAs installed around Australia, Matthews has the expertise to meet your business needs.
