Labeling head IXOR
Smallest servo-driven labeling head in its performance class

Smallest servo-driven labeling head in its performance class

IXOR in operation

A future-proof investment

In the matter of mechanics, the IXOR can be ideally integrated in fully automatic labeling machines with the help of a modular construction kit. It can also be assembled to the conveyor belt of a production line by means of accessorial stands. Pre-printed labels are applied on products or packaging fast and precisely.

The device has the control unit integrated, a separate control cabinet is not required. The base unit can be selected from four structural widths in right-hand and left-hand designs. Unwinders pick up label rolls with 410 mm maximum outside diameter.

Zero downtime is possible through a redundant system.

IXOR with Smartphone

The labeling head is a key component for smart production. The LAN and WLAN interfaces enable the device to be connected to the superior control units of machines.

MQTT ensures cross-platform and future-proof communication, while Modbus, OPC UA and Ethernet/IP are available on demand. Protocols are kept simple and lean, machine and plant data can be submitted event-driven. If data values change, updates are possible in real time.

Remote IXOR operation with a smartphone, a tablet or a PC is possible at any time. The intuitive web interface allows backup, restore and updates.

Reliable identification and precise positioning

Details - standard labeling head

The subsequent illustration shows a very common IXOR version. This configuration is characterized by an economic and compact construction.

The unwinder and the rewinder are mounted directly on the base unit and operate without a separate drive. In contrast, the illustration below shows an IXOR with a motor-driven unwinder and a motor-driven rewinder, enabling to process large label rolls.

picking up label roll diameters up to 310 mm

1 Rewinder
When the labels have been peeled off, the liner tape is rewound. The swing lever and an integrated coupling enable the liner tape to be constantly tensed after passing the drive roller.

2 Unwinder
picking up label rolls with 310 mm (optionally 410 mm) maximum outside diameter. The swing lever and an integrated brake mechanism enable constant tension of the label web.

3 (Label roll) core retainer
By turning the handle, the core of the label roll is tightened and released again.

4 Base unit
made of cast aluminum. Basis to assemble all the units. The chassis possesses protection class IP66, NEMA 250 type 12. Further included is the drive unit consisting of a highly dynamic and high-torque servo motor.

5 Operation panel
Colored 3.5“ LCD touch display. In case of overhead assembly, the display can be rotated by 180°.

6 Pick-up points
on bars with 30 mm diameter. By moving the system, the position of the label on the product can be adjusted transverse to its transport direction.

7 Motor-driven unwinder
picking up label rolls with 410 mm (optionally 510 mm) maximum outside diameter. An integrated, brushless torque motor rotates the label roll and unwinds the label web according to the swing lever position.

8 Fixing bar
to pick up all the units: base unit and motor-driven winders

9 Deflection rollers
to guide the label web from the motor-driven unwinder to the base unit. Diameter 38 mm as pictured above

10 Motor-driven rewinder
When the labels have been peeled off, the liner tape is rewound. The swing lever and an integrated, brushless torque motor enable the liner tape to be constantly tensed after passing the drive roller.
