Weber Packaging Solutions: Label printer-applicator uses tamp-blow method of application

The Model 4300 Pro-Apply label printer-applicator from Weber Packaging Solutions, Inc. (formerly Weber Marking Systems) offers a selection of thermal/thermal-transfer print engines, prints 203-, 300- or 600-dpi text bar codes and graphic images at speeds up to 16-in./sec., and dispenses labels up to 6-in. wide and 6-in. long.

Labels are printed in a cost-efficient, next-out mode, and then immediately are applied to cartons or products on the production or packaging line. Utilizing the tamp-blow method of application, a printed pressure-sensitive label is peeled from its liner and is retained by vacuum on the applicator’s tamp pad. The pad is extended and the label is blown on to the surface from approximately 0.25-in.

Standard features include durable anodized aluminum construction, an external user interface with LCD display, multiple inputs/outputs to facilitate the use of optional control and/or zero downtime configuration, and stepper-driven rewind for precise control. Options include a variable stroke sensor, label-on-pad sensor, and an adjustable stand.  Operates with Weber’s exclusive Legitronic® software.
