Sinclair makes sticky labels

Next time you take a bite out of an apple and find a little sticky label stuck to your teeth you’ll know who to blame: Sinclair International. Sinclair makes the labels, prints them and builds the systems to stick them onto produce. The labels are held by a low pressure vacuum to a soft rubber applicator head which index round to apply the label to each fruit as it passes below on a conveyor. To keep everything perfectly synchronised Sinclair uses the Hitachi J100 sensorless flux vector inverter from HID.
