We've applied that experience to creating the new line of Model 5200 Series label - printer - applicators.
Designed, engineered, and built by Weber, these systems provide high quality printing, precise application, and unprecedented versatility - all at an economical price.
High Quality Print Resolution of The Weber Model 5200 Label Printer / Applicator:
Offering a wide range of on-demand printers - from renowned vendors such as Zebra Technologies - the new Model 5200 Series provides crisp text, in-spec bar codes, and eye-catching graphics at 203 or 300 dpi resolution.
Depending on the print engine, the model 5200 series outputs pressure sensitive labels from 1' to 6' wide and up to 6' long.
The systems can keep pace with high-volume, high-speed production lines with label print speeds varying from 5' to 12' per second.
Application Methods of The Weber Model 5200 Label Printer / Applicator:
All model 5200 series systems print labels in a next-out mode, offering a choice of one of three different application methods: tamp-blow, Weber's exclusive Flex-Tamp, or air blow.
Tamp-blow provides precise application without product contact. The label is printed, peeled away from the liner, and held by a vacuum on the applicator pad.
As the product or carton moves by, the applicator extends to within .25', gently blowing the label onto the surface. The applicator then immediately retracts to receive the next label.
Available only from Weber, the Flex - Tamp applicator functions in a similar manner to the tamp - blow, but makes gentle contact with the carton or product as it passes.
Both the tamp-blow and the flex-tamp methods utilize a newly engineered tamp assembly that enables greater versatility in choosing tamp pad sizes and stroke lengths.
All three methods of application are accurate within - 0.06' and are capable of applying labels to the tops. bottoms, or sides of cartons or products.
Applicator pads are available in a range of standard sizes. And to make the system even more versatile, an optional quick change tamp pad is available.
In just a few seconds, the tamp can be removed and another slid into place to accommodate a different size label.
Versatile Options of The Weber Model 5200 Label Printer / Applicator:
Other options to maximize versatility include a product height sensor, which allows the system to label items of varying height running along the same conveyor. Multiple I/O's permit operation in conjunction with PLC's, Scales, or a PC.
Label and printer ribbon strobe light alerts an optional label-on-pad sensor further enhance the system's operation.
An adjustable stand can be added to orient the Model 5200 Series in virtually any position.
The units also include a built-in connection for Weber's LegiLink terminal, which enables the remote input of label information.
The Model 5200 by Weber is constructed to withstand harsh industrial environments.
Vital electronic components are safely housed in a corrosion-resistant stainless steel casement, with an anodized aluminum faceplate facilitating integration of the print engine, label/unwind rewind, and other components.
The system is simple to use, as well. The exterior microprocessor controller and tamp assembly allow the unit to be set-up and adjusted quickly and easily.
