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.

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.

Wrap-around labels

Protective laminate

All-around labeling
Up to the D1 diameter value, a data block captures the circumference of an item.

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

Wrap-around labels

Transparent laminate covers data blocks on a label and protects them persistently from environmental impacts.

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

The labels are wound in single lanes and are individually packed.

With labels 1 19.1 mm to 63.5 m mm high (H), items diameters 2 mm to 16 mm can be labeled. If using labels 70 mm high, the item diameter must be 6 mm or more.
