Wrap-around applicator WICON

Cylindric items of diameters 2 mm to 16 mm, such as single wires, strands, cables, hoses, tubes or round rods, can be labeled with the wrap-around applicator.

Transparent laminate covers data blocks and protects them persistently from dust and wear.

Items are inserted in horizontal orientation and centered by panels. Printing a label and wrapping it around an item takes 1.8 to six seconds, depending on the number of wrap-arounds.

Operation starts as soon as an item has been inserted. It may be triggered by a data interface or an I/O interface. A label is printed and then picked up by the applicator. The diameter of an item is identified on the wrapper head. The size of a label determines how many times it will be wrapped around the item.

While labels are wrapped around an item, the aperture for insertion and removal is covered by a finger guard. Operations require materials been guided centered on a printer, as well as a slim print roller.

The properties of cab wrap-around labels are precisely adapted to automated label application using WICON, so are the manufacturing methods. All the labels ‒ from the first to the last ‒ are applied precisely with the help of pretesion and retension. cab cannot provide any functional warranty if third-party labels are in use.

The data block on the label can be printed using the cablabel S3 software. You can find pre-installed sample labels at www.cab.de/en/cablabel

Make sure item surfaces are clean and free of lubricants.

cab recommends materials with a maximum diameter of 3 mm be tested at the factory.

All-around labeling
Up to the D1 diameter value, a data block captures the circumference of an item. In cases of smaller diameters, data blocks are partially covered.

Partial labeling
Up to the D2 diameter value, protective laminate captures a data block.

Wrap-around labels

Labels can be removed from the peel-off plate of a printer by hand or transfered by the wrap-around applicator directly to items.
