Labeling head IXOR
The smallest servo-driven labeling head in its performance class

  • Servo motor drive unit
  • Labels can be applied on products or packaging fast and precisely.
  • Modular construction kit
  • Extremely flat design: chassis depth 54 mm, ideal for assembly in labeling machines
  • Smartphone-like, intuitive user navigation
  • LAN and WLAN interfaces
  • Structural widths 62 to 310 mm
  • Zero downtime possible through a redundant system

Mechanically, IXOR can be ideally integrated in fully automatic labeling machines by means of a modular construction kit – or it can be assembled to the conveyor belt of a production line by means of a wide range of accessorial stands. Thus, pre-printed labels can be applied on products or packaging fast and precisely.

The control unit is integrated in the device, a separate control cabinet is not required. The base unit is provided in four widths, as left hand or right hand version. Unwinders enable processing of label rolls with 410 mm maximum outside diameter.

Future-proof investment

IXOR with mobile

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

MQTT ensures cross-platform and future-proof communication. 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. In case data values have changed, data updates are possible in real time.

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


Label sensor CEON

Label sensor CEONto detect particularly thin or transparent label materials

When self-adhesive labels are applied automatically, paper or plastic materials are in use depending on the requirement. The range includes particularly thin, transparent or metallized labels.

The intelligent CEON label sensor on the labeling head supports reliable identification and precise positioning of all conventional label materials.

Good reasons for choosing CEON:

  • Easy assembly directly on the peel-off plate
  • Detection of all label materials at any mesh width
  • Precise detection even at very high dispensing speeds up to 8,000 inches/min
  • High repeat accuracy
  • Comfortable sensor balance by means of the AutoTeach function directly on the IXOR
  • Operating voltage 15 to 30 VDC
  • Push-pull output: PNP, NPN, 40mA, short-circuit proof

IXOR Functions
Labeling head 124 L,
for label rolls up to 310 mm diameter

1 Unwinder
to process label rolls up to 310 mm (optionally 410 mm) outside diameter. Constant label web tension is enabled by the swing lever and an integrated brake mechanism.

2 Roll holder
By turning the handle, the core of the label roll is tightened and loosened.

3 Basic unit
made of cast aluminum. Basis to assemble all components. The chassis possesses protection class IP66, NEMA 250 type 12. Also included is the highly dynamic and high-torque servo motor drive unit.

4 Peel-off plate
Customized configuration is possible by means of an extensive modular construction kit.

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

6 Rewinder
When all the labels have been dispensed, the liner tape is rewound. Constant liner tape tension after the drive roller is enabled by the swing lever and an intergrated coupling.

More specific informationen to operation panel, software features and interfaces please see IXOR product catalog.
