wetLAN® 120

Modifications to the wetLAN® 120 permit the machine to apply wet glue labels to angular containers made of cardboard, plastic or metal like f.ex. cartons, boxes, canisters, cans, or flat containers such as cut-to-size cardboards or folding boxes. Two magazine types are available.

Advantages:

  • Patch labelling as well as around-the-corner labelling is possible
  • High efficiency due to fast conversion simple operation
  • Little or no Investment in size parts
  • Attractive purchase price – economic operation
  • Compact design
  • Lowest cost of ownership

Operation:

The labeler’s conveyor chain carries the 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 roll 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 range

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.

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.
