Wrap-around applicator WICON

 in preparation

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.

Data blocks on labels are protected persistently from environmental impacts by transparent laminate.

Items inserted horizontally are set by centering panels. Items can be aligned 25 mm to 100 mm (1“ to 4“) distant to a label margin, using a stop.

The cycle time for printing and wrapping is 1.8 - 6 seconds, depending on the number of wraps.

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

The slot to insert or remove items is covered by a finger guard during processing.

Only wrap-around labels provided by the manufacturer guarantee proper applications. Item surfaces must be clean and free of lubricants.

Pivoting the applicator enables label rolls or ribbons be replaced easily.

In cases of errors to fix, such as label jams, opening the service door provides access to the wrapper head.

Label margins are 12.7 mm distant to the centering panel. By moving the applicator, the wheel is aligned from the carrier material to the marking is aligned.

Label margins can be set 25 mm to 100 mm distant to an item using the stop.

  • The stop rotates by 180°.
  • The narrow side fits with small product diameters.
  • With product diameters 5 mm or more, the wider side is recommended.

Wrap-around labels

Wrap-around labels

Product diameter D1
Up to this value, a data block captures the circumference of an item.

Product diameter D2
Up to this value, the protective laminate captures the data block.

Data blocks on labels are protected persistently from contamination and wear by transparent laminate.

The labels can be removed by hand from the peel-off plate on a printer or applied by the wrap-around applicator to items.

Labels are wound in single lanes. Rolls are packed individually.

With labels 19.1 mm to 63.5 m mm high (H), items of diameters 2 mm to 16 mm can be labeled. Using labels 70 mm high, the smallest possible item diameter is 6 mm.
