PAE series

Fully automatic labelling machine for pallet labelling

The PAE Pallet Labeler is an innovative printing and dispensing system that can label up to three sides of a pallet with pneumatic and electric traversing axes. Robot systems are also used for tricky pallet applications. The labels are printed with individual data in real time immediately before the dispensing process. We use thermal/thermal transfer printing modules from various manufacturers for this purpose.

The complete traceability of products is indispensable today, which is why interest in intelligent pallet labelling processes is also very high. The b+b pallet labeller processes label sizes up to DIN A5 format and thus enables product labelling according to the global GS1 standards.


Are you looking for the right cross-line automation software or the right partner to integrate your pallet labelling into your ERP solution?  - Under you will find a flexible and modular solution.

Labelling of front and  long side

The pallet is stopped in the programmed position in front of the PAE. The pallet is labelled in stillstand. .  The first label is printed and fixed with a transfer stamp on the long side of the pallet. The applicator axis changes to position to label the front side.


Optional labelling on the back side

If additional labelling of the back side is required, the pallet is moved forward by one pallet length.


Label hand over

During label hand over, the label is lightly pressed on. The spring-mounted transfer stamp compensates for any misalignment between the stamp plate and the pallet surface.


The PAE series is characterised by modularity, ease of maintenance and service.  Special focus was placed on this during development. All components are clearly arranged and easily accessible.  Depending on requirements, the housing can be manufactured in robust aluminium or stainless steel or as an open variant for integration into an existing protective fence.

The units of the PAE series can also be used in harsh environmental conditions and can also be equipped with air conditioning or heating units on request. The system is optionally available in left- or right-hand versions. This enables easy integration into existing production lines.


Depending on the local conditions (available space, height of the conveyor system etc.) and the requirements of our customers regarding the labelling of their products as well as the origin of the data, we develop a variety of customer-specific solutions in addition to our standard solutions. Here is a small excerpt.


An optionally available scanner checks the label immediately after printing and checks the barcodes contained in the text for legibility in accordance with the DIN ISO/IEC standard. A new label is automatically printed in the case of incorrect readings.

PAE-2SP in throughfeed - all axes are pneumatic. The pallets or chipboard stacks are provided with a DIN A5 SSCC label on the side in throughfeed. A second SSCC label is then applied to the back side of the pallet in throughfeed. Both labels are applied after the application process. In this application, Zebra OEM print modules (ZE500-6 - 300 dpi) were used - application example

PAE-2SE at a standstill - Apart from the label turning station, all axes are driven by servo drives. Together with 2 other PAE-2SE the system is supplied with print data by the extension of our LabelPlatform4, the Pallet Labelcenter. Hermes+ devices from CAB were used as the printing module.

If the label needs to be attached to the pallet foot, we use robust and industrial staplers with roller magazines. Depending on the application, the stapling unit can be installed directly in the label transfer station.
