The Alpha Compact automatically unwinds its supply roll and peels the labels from their liner, then precisely applies them to products or packages as they pass by on a conveyor line. The standard unit applies labels up to 4.7-in. x 11.8-in. at speeds up to 164 ft./min., with ±0.03-in. placement accuracy.
Can be oriented to apply labels to the sides, tops or bottoms of packages. To accommodate various production environments, the unit can be specified for right- or left-hand applications.
The Alpha Compact is available in three separate interfaces:
• An external panel that provides control through a pair of potentiometers and push-buttons;
• an external LCD display;
• and USB connection that permits PC-based configurations.
Each version features rugged die-cast aluminum construction, single-key calibration, automatic recognition of missing labels, in-production speed adjustment, and more.
