Panther Shadow

One of the lowest cost print and apply systems on the market, the Panther Shadow print and apply label automation system is an entry level, on-demand labeling solution.

The Shadow can be unpacked, set up, and working within minutes. It is literally as easy as setting the unit on a table and plugging it in. For greater integration within your operations, the Shadow can also be configured on a stand and rolled up to a conveyor for top and side application of labels.
