Labeling Systems : Print-and-apply labeler
LSI recently provided a labeling solution to a customer who needed a print and apply corner wrap applicator to be used on the out feed end of a case taper.
The Model 20.80 utilizes a thermal transfer printer to print the pertinent information to the label. As the label dispenses onto the applicator grid, the box passes through the case taper. The box pushes through the hinged label applicator, which effectively wipes the label from the leading edge down the side edge. Boxes are then removed by an operator for palletizing. The LSI corner wrap applicator features a high volume vacuum fan, making the applicator less prone to clogging as with other vacuum technologies. This feature makes the applicator ideal for dusty environments. Additionally, it allows the applicator to handle more than one label size. The unit featured PLC controls, T-base stand with locking casters, separate regulator and gauges for components for maximum air control, and stainless steel and aluminum construction for corrosion resistance and durability. The Model 20.80 is available with a variety of thermal transfer print engines from the likes of Sato, Zebra, and Datamax.
