Label Dispenser cab HS / VS

Karlsruhe, January 21st, 2013

Press Release

  • Company: cab Produkttechnik GmbH & Co KG
  • Division: Product Marking                
  • Subject: Label Dispenser HS / VS
  • Picture: HS120 / VS120

Self-adhesive labels are applied on products, packaging and others at one specific time and often made by hand. However, labels keep most of the time more on the finger than properly on the product.

For an easier and more convenient handling cab Produkttechnik GmbH & Co KG,Karlsruhe, decided to manufacture the label dispensers series HS and VS. The two systems are differing in the dispensing direction. Labels are made available to be removed by hand at the upper side of the HS dispenser in horizontal and „bottom leading” direction or in case of the VS at the front side of the dispenser in vertical and „top leading“ direction. Label removing is simple for both. The label is peeled off the label liner while at the same time it is forward feeded. The operator may choose the optimum method of processing and thus adapt to the operating process for applying the labels in an economically efficient manner.

Labels to be handled may have a height of 5–600 mm and a width of 8-180 mm. The label roll has a maximum diameter of 205 mm. For the first time, the label liner is completely rewound after the labels have been peeled off. The liner is easily inserted and clamped thanks to the long-used and proven tightening axle. And it may at the end be easily removed again by loosening the expander.

The wound-in or wound-out label rolls can be inserted very quickly and smartly since the dispenser opens at one side. A short locking of the roll retainer avoids the labels’ getting out of place. Each single label is positioned via label sensor with microswitch trigger and may be easily removed from top or from the front side. For dispensing round, oval or transparent labels the label sensor is moved up to the leading edge of the label. The label dispensing speed (100 – 200 mm/s) may be adjusted to the working flow.

The smart, but highly robust industrial system as "+" version provides lots of additional help functions for the operator. A continuously running 4-digit counter displays the current number of labels dispensed. The operating panel provides to adjust the label dispensing speed and to choose whether the label shall be dispensed automatically after removal of the current label or be peeled off on demand via push-button. The advantage here is that the labels peeled off the liner do not sustain glue losses on free glue points through dust. The demand of labels is easily handled by manual operation or via foot switch. For this, a peripheral connector at the backside of the system gets external signals. The dispensers are available in three different widths as type HS or VS60, HS or VS120 and HS or VS180.

cab dispensers avoid a tricky and stressful peeling the labels off the liner by hand and consequently related damages at the label or glue. In addition, this saves several seconds per label and the liner used up does not need to be disposed of up to three times per label roll. At minimum energy needs the compact system is suitable for use wherever labels in different widths are manually applied on products, packaging and other others.

The investment of buying the quiet running and with 5W economical label dispensers pays for themselves within a short period of time. However, it is nonetheless essential to handle the labels in a precise, uncomplicated and professional way.
