Weber Marking Systems has unveiled its new Model 5100 Dual-Label pallet printer-applicator. This system marries a high-performance label print engine with a specially engineered articulating applicator to perform the printing and adjacent-side labeling of pallets in line.
The Dual-Label pallet system features a selection of 203- or 300-dpi print engines to handle labels up to 6.5 inches wide and 8 inches long. Labels can be printed with text, bar codes, and graphic images at print speeds of up to 12 ips.
As a label is printed, it is automatically peeled from its liner and held by vacuum on the unit's applicator pad. This applicator pad is mounted on a pneumatically operated swing-arm that reaches across the leading side of a pallet as it approaches the Dual-Label system via a conveyor. A sensor on the swing-arm detects the presence of the pallet, and the label is gently blown onto its side. The swing-arm then retracts to collect a second printed label and applies that label to the adjacent side of the pallet to complete the cycle. The system can print and apply labels for up to five pallets per minute.
The Model 5100 Dual-Label pallet printer-applicator operates with Weber's Legitronic software, which simplifies label formatting, editing, and printing. Weber also manufactures a wide variety of blank and custom-imprinted pressure-sensitive label materials.
