Weber: High-speed label printer applicator

Weber Packaging Solutions has created the L-A 6000 to meet the requirements of distribution centers to label variable-sized cartons at ever increasing line speeds with accurate shipping information; this reliable and cost-effective printer applicator uses the tamp-blow method to print and apply up to 40 labels/min. to products that vary in height up to 19.68 in. (500 mm).

A sensor initially determines the height of the approaching product for labeling and then the applicator moves to the correct position at high speed. This reduces the travelling distance for the label application, allowing the L-A 6000 to simultaneously label more accurately and up to 50% faster than a label printer-applicator with a pneumatically driven cylinder.

The newly redesigned microprocessor controller is compact and facilitates easy integration into existing operating environments. The system’s modular construction allows easy access to components for servicing and or maintenance, enabling convenient changing of labels and ribbons as well as easy cleaning of the print module’s thermal print head.
