The Label Pro® 5.5, which is known as the world's most compact label gluer. Whether for pallet labeling, package labeling, or product labeling, Gluefast's Label Pro® 5.5 can glue any size label up to 5.5" wide (14 cm) quickly and neatly. Enhance the productivity of your labeling process with the Label Pro® 5.5.
Features of the Label Pro® 5.5
Fast, neat, compact, and trouble-free, the Label Pro® 5.5 is available in manual or electric models. The manual model starts when the operator places the label in position and pushes a black rubber feed roller to run the label through the equipment, whereas, the electric model starts automatically when the operator feeds the label into the gluer. The electric Label Pro® 5.5 is available with a 120- or 220-volt motor. The motor typically stops one second after the label exits to reduce wear and tear as well as increase the pot life of the adhesive.
The standard Label-Pro® applies a corduroy pattern of glue to the back of the label resulting in double the number of labels glued per gallon versus a solid glue pattern. A corduroy pattern of adhesive is applied across the entire label, reducing adhesive consumption by up to 50%. Generally, the Label Pro® 5.5 Label Gluer is most efficient for short to medium run labeling jobs and exceptionally great for applying glue to labels for application to cartons, cans or bottles.
Key Benefits of the Label Pro® 5.5 include:
- Thin film with no glue oozing from the edge of the label.
- Ideal for short runs and special jobs.

How to Use the Colonel Gluing Machine
To use the Colonel gluing machine, first choose the type of lay flat glue that will work best for your adhesive application needs. Remove and fill the glue tray with the water-based glue or adhesive. Once the tray is full, insert the tray back into the gluing machine. If animal glue is to be used, a water tray is filled and the thermostat is set to the desired temperature. After the adhesive application equipment is prepped, start the machine, adjust for the proper glue film and run the print, label, poster, or photo through the roll coaters, and, in only seconds, it will apply a thin film of adhesive. The operator manually positions the paper on the board stock and the glued paper/board combination is fed through the Adjutant Press for a permanent wrinkle-free bond.
The Colonel Gluer from Gluefast is part of a complete adhesive labeling system designed for rapid output and a quick turnaround.

Gluefast's Adjutant Press for Large Label, Print, Poster, and Photo Mounting
The Adjutant Press is the final adhesive application equipment used in Gluefast's efficient large mounting system to ensure a wrinkle-free bond. Effectively eliminating air bubbles or wrinkles, the Adjutant Press is suitable for a broad range of adhesive applications such as labeling or print, poster, and photo mounting in industrial and commercial operations.
Standard Features of the Adjutant Press Mounting Machine Include:
- Upper Rubber Roller & Lower Metal Roller
- Available in 20", 32", and 42" Roller Widths
- Smoothes Materials up to 1 - 1/8" Thick
- Variable speed control standard for 115 volt systems
(220 volt motors optional)

How to Use the Adjutant Press Adhesive Application Equipment
After running the board stock, label, print, poster, or photo through the Colonel Gluer, the combined paper and board stock is positioned together and fed through the Adjutant Press. This adhesive applicator applies uniform pressure to the materials being mounted. When complete, the mounted piece is then placed in a stack to dry.
Even pressure is an important aspect in adhesive labeling and mounting applications. By applying adequate pressure, the mounting press helps squeeze out air between the adhesive, paper, and mounting board for a strong bond and a professional appearance. Whether you are mounting a substrate to a mat board, foam core, or other board stock, the Adjutant Press system can be adjusted to apply just the right amount of pressure to get the job done.
When the Colonel gluer, Adjutant Press, and our lay flat glue products are used in combination, the final result is a team of "Wrinkle Tamers" that cannot be beat!
