wetLAN® 110

The flexible wetLAN 110 inline labeler specializes in labelling multi-size round containers receiving a single label – patch or wraparound. To optimize performance the wetLAN 110 includes three unique, easy changeover label magazine options. The wetLAN 110 is unmatched in the industry for its adjustment range – handling small and large label and container combinations, plus its ability to be sized for slow and high speed operation. Available options include bar code scanning, reject, orientation, label/container marking, tamper evident, and lid labelling.

Operation:

The labeler’s conveyor chain carries containers through the inline labeller. At the infeed a metering device creates a repeatable gap between containers, initiating progressive labelling processes. As a metered container is released a photo eye activates the label magazine. A label is separated from the stack in the magazine and guided past the glue roller. The glue roller applies a very thin and uniform glue layer onto the backside of the label. The conveyor chain speed and magazine label release are timed to achieve accurate label pick up by the container. Subsequent to label pick up, the container moves into the roll-on station where the label is securely affixed to the container.

Oscillating magazine – for lower and medium output

In the oscillating magazine the label stacks are placed in upright position. During label release the magazine swivels forward so that the front label edge touches the glue layer on the rotating glue roller. Due to the adhesive force the label is separated and pulled from the magazine. Integrating optional inkjet or bar code scanning devices at the label feed position is ideal.

– Controls and additional coding

FVT 18 – the high speed solution

In the FVT 18 magazine the label stacks are placed in upright position. In contrast to the oscillating magazine, the FVT 18 magazine is stationary which allows higher output. Additionally labels are loaded into the magazine without interruption to production. A high speed vaccum bar picks the front label from the stationary magazine and transfers it to feed rolls before moving the label into the belt transfer station. The belt station transports the label to the glue roller. Integrating optional inkjet or bar code scanning devices at the label feed position is ideal. The driven transfer belts and conveyor speed are timed with the glue roller to ensure accurate pick up of the label by the container. This proven approach to label handling delivers consistent quality at 400 bpm.

FVT 20 – for large labels

In the FVT 20 magazine labels are laid horizontally into the label magazine for pick up by a cycling vacuum bar equipped with multiple removable suction heads. The quantity of suction heads in use is determined by label length. This horizontal orientation allows easy change between labels with virtually no change parts even between the largest and smallest labels. When a label is picked the vaccum bar transfers the label vertically into a waiting position in a belt transfer station. Integrating optional inkjet or bar code scanning devices at the label feed position is ideal. The driven transfer belts and conveyor speed are timed with the glue roller to ensure accurate pick up of the label by the container.
