Accessories for Labelers

Brackets, winders adjusters and more

Our accessories are available on most labellers; certain ones come standard on the Delta and Premier labellers.

Power Unwinder

For a standard 11 ¾ “ diameter roll no Power unwind is necessary but for tall labels on the 14” diameter roll or for a 16” diameter roll a power unwind is recommended.  This relieves the pressure on the web (less likely to break at a weak point) and gives more consistent labeling

 

 

 Loose Loop unwinder

Independent servo drive pulls the web from the roll to feed the Label dispense head with a constant gentle low tension.

Ideal for

1. High speeds

2.Heavy and/or large labels

3.Extreme accuracy

Power Re-winder

For standard label rolls roll no power re-wind is necessary but for very tall labels with 16” feed rolls a power re-wind is recommended, particularly for labelers in the horizontal position.  This further relieves the pressure on the web (less likely to break at a weak point)  

Low & Broken Web detectors

If the web should break, or if the roll is low various things can happen according to your options, or preferences.

1.The machine stops

2. An alarm sounds

3. Stack lights (Optional) can flash

Oversize infeed rolls

The standard 11 ¾ “ diameter roll has a 3” diameter core, but optionally there are 14” diameter rolls or 16” diameter rolls.

A power unwind is recommended for the large rolls with large (tall) labels.

Tall Label extenders

The standard label head handles label height up to 6 3/8”, but optionally there are two extension kits…to 8” tall and to 13” tall.

Hot Stamp Coder

We can mount most hot Stamp Coders on your label head, and have brackets available for the common ones.  If you have no preference we can recommend an appropriate one.

Thermal Transfer Printer

The print head is a semi-conductor in which a miniature row of printing elements is encapsulated within a ceramic coating. The print line (the area of the print head that is used to create the print) has 300 "elements" per inch. These are turned on and off in rapid succession and in turn melt the ink from the ribbon and print it on the label.

Due to the fact that the characters are formed electronically, thermal transfer printing can print "real time" information, graphics and barcodes.

Laser Coder/Printer

The print is performed by a laser which usually removes a darker area of the label to create a code formed by the lighter area beneath.

If a label has darker areas the code can be made there, or the label is preprinted with a dark area (box) and the code/barcode is printed within.

Due to the fact that the characters are formed electronically, laser printing can print "real time" information, graphics and barcodes.

Vision Systems

In order to verify specific details on a label, including one or all of Lot, Date, barcode, alignment and other details, varying degrees of vision systems can be added to your labeller.

Luminescence detector

In order to verify whether a label has been applied to a container or carton, it is usual to treat the label with UV fluorescing material which can then be detected by a Luminescence detector

Reject Station

Depending on faults that may be detected by Vision systems, missing label detectors, bar code scanners and/or other safety devices, any faulty product can be directed into a reject shelf or bin, with an optional confirmation sensor that the faulty product was correctly rejected. 

Stack lights can warn of faults, and the labeler can be programmed to shut down if too many consecutive faults are detected.

Bar Code Reader

Various detectors (or Vision Systems) are available to read the bar codes.  Depending on the application simple or sophisticated systems are available, which can be used in combination with reject stations.

Missing Label detector

Various detectors (or Vision Systems) are available to detect the correct application of a label or labels.  Depending on the application simple or sophisticated systems are available, which can be used in combination with reject stations.

Product aligner - Belt system

Rectangular, oval and shaped containers can require pre-aligning before labeling to ensure perfect label placement.  If the product is off centre – so will the label be.

Our exclusive belt system aligns most containers, and has the advantage of automatically configuring itself to different containers.

The wheels are independently pneumatically controlled, so that difficult bottles can be more readily aligned.

However some containers, particularly fat ovals, are stubborn and require a single or even dual worm infeed to align them!

Product aligner - Worm system

Rectangular, oval and shaped containers can require pre-aligning before labeling to ensure perfect label placement.  If the product is off centre – so will the label be.

The worm system is the ultimate in alignment devices, but requires a worm for each container.  On our Premier labeler the worm drive is interchangeable with our Belt aligner, so that only those that need a worm have to have a worm.

The worm has the added advantage that it also acts as a product separator

Tall Wrap Belt

The standard wrap belt is 3” tall, but with larger backing plates labels up to 6” tall can usually be handled. An optional Wrap belt of 6” tall (and other sizes) can handle most other taller labels with the appropriate backing plate.

Safety Guarding

Dependent on the customer’s requirements, the application, and the local requirements, a variety of Safety guards can be fitted.  Consultation with the factory and your safety officer should be made to determine the appropriate guarding for your application.
Sico Style Dial Indicators are normally fitted to our Premier Labelers and in certain areas of our Delta labelers for ease of setups. Scales are often inset into shafting also for ease of repeat set ups.
Bottle separators are available necessary to singulate certain products befor labelling.
Easily adjustable and with variable speed.
We have a plethora of attachments to label even difficult products. Shown is a soft foam pneumatic rear tuck attachment.
Our label sensor detects the label edge with capacitance. It can even be set for clear labels. Nothing to dust up and very easily setup. At the end of the label roll it can be useful is to have a splicing station. We have simple splicing attachment that can be placed on the label head or to one side.
A simple but often overlooked attachment-casters for readily moving the labeller if necessary from area to area. Different models are available usually locking casters or both levelling foot pads with casters. Printer Brackets can be hinged for easy access.
Brackets are available with multiple adjustmentsscales, dials, et cetera for barcodes cameras sensors-you name it we have an adjuster that is standard in our range.
