EOS 2, EOS 5 label printers

for printing on one side of continuous pressed shrink tubes

Label printer EOS

EOS2 is the compact one, requiring little footprint on workstations. Label rolls with diameters up to 203 mm can be inserted to EOS5.

Continuous shrink tubes can be perforated, to simplify separation by hand at a later stage. Cutting a material is as well possible. The cutter can be pivoted to exchange the material.

HERMES Q4L printer system with a 4712 flag applicator

Print and apply system HERMES Q4L with flag applicator 4712

Labels are applied precisely on round materials such as cables, hoses or pipes. First, both endings of a label are stuck together. Then the label is tamped onto the round material.

The pad locates next to the peel-off plate. Printed labels are picked up and transferred to the spot of application by a stroke cylinder.

A further cylinder guides the label all around the round material using cam control.

The length of the stroke cylinder defines the maximum distance of a product to the peel-off plate.

integral UHF RFID module will be
available Q1/2024

Label flags

Label flags

Upper materials and adhesives have been developed in particular for reliable label flag processing.

A label entirely encloses a product. Once stuck, label flags remain permanently closed.

cab label printer SQUIX with WICON wrap-around applicator

WICON wrap-around applicator

Cylindric items of diameters of 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 also via 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 product.

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.

Selecting a print roller in accordance with the width of a label enables precise print images:

Label printer SQUIX with WICON wrap-around applicator, pivotedLabel widths           Type of print roller
12.7 - 25.4 mm                    DR4-M30
38.1 - 50.8 mm                    DR4-M60

Both print rollers are included in the scope of delivery.

Pivoting the applicator allows label rolls or ribbons been replaced easily. Opening the service door enables access to the wrapper head in cases of errors, such as label jams.

WL V2 wrap-around labels

Data block and protective laminate

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

With labels 19.1 mm to 63.5 m mm high (H), product diameters 2 mm to 16 mm can be labeled. If using labels 70 mm high, the product diameter must be 5 mm or more.

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 by pretesion and retension. cab cannot provide any functional warranty if third-party labels are in use.

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.
