What if you combined the low cost of hot-melt glue with advanced servo and adhesive application technology?


Downtime and Waste from Old Generation Adhesive Systems:

  • Cleaning char and excess glue that slings or drips onto components
  • Recirculated contaminated glue
  • Noxious fumes


  • Closed, non-recirculating adhesive extrusion system
  • Recipe-driven, servo control of adhesive dimension, position and volume
  • All extruded glue is applied only onto labels

Rotary Speeds in a Small Footprint Linear Machine

about protos

PROTOS, the world’s first 100% servo-driven, roll-fed labeler, combines NEW GENERATION technology and a modular design to deliver the most efficient, high-performance labeler available today.

Whether you are labeling 700 bottles a minute—or 100—PROTOS is customized for your unique production requirements and budget.

ELUM replaced sprockets, chains, springs and weights found on traditional roll-fed labelers with servos that work in concert with a touchscreen HMI to provide fast, precise motion control and diagnostics — all while using less energy.

The PROTOS under cabinet is clean and accessible — a dramatic change from the cramped, oily cabinets on traditional roll-fed labelers. It is the preferred replacement for outdated machines or the intelligent choice for new packaging lines.

What if you could improve performance and reduce downtime on high maintenance label cutting system?


  • Vibration and heat expansion creating excessive wear and maintenance
  • Difficult to align blades causing premature wear and inconsistent cutting
  • Labor intensive changeover


  • Unique mono-block mounting system that eliminates vibration and provides exceptional heat and corrosion resistence
  • Easy blade mounting system for fast, perfect blade alignment
  • Simple swap of anodized Label Cutter Shells and automatic adjustment by HMI

Reduced Maintenance Time & Cost Equal Equals Lower Operating Expenses
