WEBER Marking Systems has introduced its new Model 5200 corner-wrap label printer-applicator, which combines high-quality label printing with a specially designed label applicator that applies a single label around the corner of a carton.
In addition to offering a selection of print engines that addresses various print speeds and resolutions, the new corner-wrap system is available with optional RFID print-encode engines that will satisfy the emerging requirements of today’s supply chain.
Standard thermal/thermal-transfer print engines produce text, barcodes and graphic images at 203dpi or 300dpi. The RFID models combine printing capabilities with the encoding and verification of RFID inlays to meet the specifications of (Electronic Product Code) EPC Gen 1 and 2 protocols.
The unit prints (or prints and RFID encodes) labels in a next-out mode, automatically removes them from their liner, and retains them by vacuum on an integrated swing arm-mounted pad.
As a carton approaches, the pad gently applies the label to its front panel, then follows around the carton’s corner and wipes the remaining portion of the label onto its adjacent side.
The system handles labels up to 102mm wide and 300mm in length, and will print and apply labels to a maximum of 15 cartons per minute
