Abstract (en)

A labeling apparatus for converting base label stock to releasably-lined labels. The apparatus includes a vacuum anvil roller (26) and an idler roller (24) which cooperate to separate the base stock into its face web (12) and backing liner (16) components. A cutting roller (30) cooperates with the vacuum anvil roller (26) to butt cut the unlined face web to form butt cut labels. A traction nip roller (38) cooperates with the vacuum anvil roller to press the butt cut labels to the backing liner to form the releasably-lined labels. The releasably-lined labels may be imprinted and the backing liner removed as the label is affixed to an article using conventional labeling equipment. A rewind nip roller (52) cooperates with the traction nip roller to pull the backing liner, which is then rolled on a rewind mandril (28). The apparatus does not weaken or cut the backing liner during conversion to releasably-lined labels, because the butt cut is made after the face web is separated from the backing liner. <IMAGE>
