Abstract
Four self-adhesive label applicators each capable of printing, with one or two impressions, a label and dispensing that label in the same operational cycle, are intended for hand actuation, but can be power operated. In each embodiment, a web of labels is drawn from a reel in steps corresponding to one label by a feed slide which is in the form of an elongate member having barbs which engage notches of the web downstream of a location at which individual labels are detached from the web by passage over an edge and bending of the web through approximately 180 DEG . Each label, before being dispensed, is printed by operative type facets of at least one print head assembly. The latter include a number of print bands which can be adjusted from externally of the applicator casing by a single knob which selects the band for adjustment and also adjusts the selected band to the required character. The dispensed labels are applied to an article by a semi-circular pad arranged adjacent the dispensing edge. Each of the applicators is operated by a trigger-like member and the applicators as a whole have the appearance of a pistol.
