Label Application

Weber Label applicators offer numerous labelling options:

Change of Format labelling

Change of format

The label dispensing head is quick to replace (approx. 30 seconds), with our optional Quick-Change system. This means that our label printing dispensers are equipped for the most varied of present and future labelling requirements – a system for many applications.

Labelling all Sides

Labelling from all sides

The advanced design of our Labelling Systems enables labelling on multiple sides. Weber Packaging Solutions can provide standard or customised solutions for single, dual sided, corner wrap, and multiple corner labelling. Our Pallet labelling systems can label front side and back of Pallets on the fly

GS1 compliant labels

GS1 compliant

Very specific labelling guidelines must be observed for the dispatch of pallets in the Food and Non-food  industries. This requires that each pallet must bear the special GS1 prescribed EAN 128 pallet label on the face and the adjacent right–hand long side – 50 mm from the edge in each case. The most important data carrier here is the EAN 128 barcode with the so-called SSCC number of the container. The manufacturer’s factory number and a pallet number, which may only be re-used after one year, are encoded in this 18-digit number.

Critical Surfaces

Critical surfaces

Inclined or round surfaces are consistently labelled with the Gimbal dispensing head. The dispensing head is spring loaded to match the most diverse of product surfaces. When the product is touched, an optional integrated sensor is triggered which activates additional label blow-off and reverse movement.

Label Reliability

Label / Barcode Verification

Our systems allow for a barcode scanner to be mounted on the dispensing head which verifies the printed or currently dispensed label. If the barcode on the label is illegible, a new label is immediately dispensed onto the product or packaging. Barcode control scanners are also available, operating independently from the label printing dispenser mounted on the conveyor further downstream from the labelling system

Labelling and Packaging Speed

High Speed Labelling

The Blow Box applicator type is used for high speed labelling requirements. Up to 4 labels can be dispensed per second in “print-dispensing operation” here and more than 35 labels per second in “dispensing-only operation”. Depending on the label material and size, dispensing distances (Blow Box bottom to product surface) of up to 100 mm can be used.

Heights - Distances

Variable Height Labelling

Different product heights can be labelled on the fly by means of a sensor-controlled variable dispensing stroke. A long stroke is ideal for labelling of products with significant height differences, we offer you solutions with dispensing strokes up to 1.20 m. and processing label sizes up to 180 x 300 mm.

Freely Selectable height positions

Selectable height positions

Different labelling requirements such as labelling of stacked packages or double pallets demand freely selectable height positioning of the applicator. Variable height adjusters can be integrated into the labelling system to move the device into the required position. These may be: manually operated, electrically adjustment, a pneumatic or electric servo shaft system

Precision Labelling

Labelling Precision

Precision guidance allows tolerances of ± 0.5 mm. Examples include, window profiles or printed circuit boards can be labelled using special guide rails and tamp-blow applicators.

Tandem Labelling Operation

Tandem Labelling Systems

Tandem operation enables uninterrupted labelling of your products. By using two printing dispensers in tandem, also known as zero down time. The backup system takes over in the event of an error condition in the primary labelling system

Long Production running time

Extended Production Solutions

 The PUO large roll rewinder / unwinder enables processing of label rolls with roll diameters up to 430 mm             (900 running metres). This enables longer production run times and reduced reel changes

Protective Enclosure

Protective Enclosure

Special enclosures are available for extreme environmental conditions. Should you need to operate your equipment at temperatures above or below system specifications, Weber can provide climatised or thermal            enclosures. We also supply suitable enclosures for environments with high volumes of dirt and dust concentrations.

Alarm Systems

Alarm

Depending on system configuration, the Weber alarm systems clearly legible text displays and a stack light system, SMS or e-mail transmission in the event of malfunctions, an acoustic alarm, service interval displays as well as digital I/O interfaces.

 

Batch Labelling Systems

 

Cylindrical Products

Cylindrical products

The 3-roll system of the Geset all-round labelling system has a very high application accuracy, whereby two aligned labels can be dispensed in a one single operation. The system guarantees high production performance, at 100 products per minute.

Side Labelling

Side labelling

 The Geset side labelling system labels up to 250 products per minute. Items to be labelled are first centred using product guidance and thereafter aligned and labelled.

Side and All-round Labelling Systems

Side and all-round labelling systems

These systems enable automatic labelling of the most diverse of products in large batches. Decorative labels or primary labels can be created in any label format and in sizes from 7 x 8 mm to 300 x 1 000 mm. Accurate labelling can be achieved on round, square or conical products.
