AbstractThe label transferring device for placing labels in a separable mold of a blow molding machine which includes a pair of movable platens which converge the mold portions and also move in unison to different blow molding stations of the machine. An articulating arm is mounted directly on one of the platens and includes a vacuum section head to transport the labels. The articulating arm moves the carrying head from a label supply magazine which is also mounted on the platen to a labeling position between the molds, so that both the articulating arm and supply magazine are carried by the platen as it moves to different blow molding stations. Preferably, an articulating arm having a plurality of carrying heads is mounted on each platen along with a label supply magazine.
