Label unwinders play an important role in medium-to-high volume label production by offering a convenient way to manage label rolls as they are fed into a label printer. While some label printers, such as the Epson TM-C7500, come with integrated label unwinders, others do not. In many cases, the stock label unwinder that comes with a label printer can be replaced by a larger one, which allows you to use larger label rolls.
Label unwinders can be either powered or unpowered and come with different speeds and specifications. DuraFast Label Company has a large selection of label unwinders available in various sizes and configurations to meet your label handling needs. For example, some label unwinders come with 2- or 3-inch core holders or even adjustable core holders for maximum flexibility.
We also have powered label unwinders designed for specific label printer models such as the Afinia L701 or Epson TM-C3500. Related accessories like label unwinder junction plates, which keep the labels aligned and provide stability, are also available below.
Label unwinder stands for thermal label printers are another great choice. These are typically unpowered and sit behind the printer.
Advantages of using a label unwinder or stand include greater operational efficiency, lower cost per label (based on buying larger label rolls with more labels per roll at a reduced cost per label), and better protection against paper jams. When paired with a label rewinder (a unit that goes in the front of the printer and rewinds labels onto a core immediate after they are printed), your printer becomes a mini label press that can print from roll to roll.
