Title: Labeler for labeling plastic containers in the blow mold in a rotary blow molder

Abstract: A labeler for labeling plastic containers in the blow mold in a rotary blow molder, with a blow wheel having arranged thereon a plurality of blow molds with a lowerable blow mold bottom, and at least one label dispenser used for providing tubular labels. The blow mold bottom is implemented such that a label can be introduced via the blow mold bottom into the blow mold before the blowing process takes place, which facilitates a spatial separation of the label supply from the feeder star wheel of the blow wheel and allows a substantially simultaneous insertion of the label and of the preform.
