The Tharo PA500w Printer/Applicator can apply over 100 labels per minute. Label size and application dependent.


Placement accuracy is assured by the printer’s stepper motor control. The PA500w is delivered with a product sensor and controller to control the triggering of the applicator for positioning a label on a product. Accuracy is label size and application dependent.


With minimal training, quick integration and increased productivity, the PA500w is an inexpensive solution for your demanding labeling requirements. Since the system is all electric, there is no need for compressed air, which makes the PA500w an excellent money saver!
