| Model 5300 Pallet Label Printer-Applicator
Weber pallet load label printer-applicators combine high print quality with simultaneous label application for the identification of unitized products prior to shipping or storage.
Specially engineered for the labeling of pallet loads, each system integrates a thermal/thermal-transfer label printer and a patented tamp-blow applicator. The print-apply unit is mounted to a heavy-duty stand which is adjustable to accommodate loads of various heights.
As a pressure-sensitive label is printed, it's automatically peeled from its liner and retained by vacuum on the applicator pad. When a pallet load is delivered to the system, a product sensor initiates the extension of the tamp arm and the label is blown onto the load from approximately 0.25".
These systems are available with high-quality print engines manufactured by Datamax, Sato and Zebra. Label sizes range from a minimum of 0.75" wide and 0.5" long to a maximum of 7.0" wide and 8.0" long. The printers are capable of producing labels with variable-sized text, high-density bar codes and graphic images at print speeds up to 16 ips.
Special Features & Options
The Model 5300 pallet loadsystem includes a number of noteworthy features that add to the operational versatility of this printer-applicator:
• Browser-based monitoring. The status of all operational functions and configurations can be monitored by logging on to a web page that is unique to each Model 5300 unit.
• Numerous I/O's. The system can be interfaced with many types of external devices.
• One-to-one media consumption. Special label unwind and rewind dimensions are matched to the system’s ribbon supply to ensure they are consumed at the same rate, reducing downtime and eliminating partial changeovers.
• Print job storage. Multiple label printing formats can be stored in the system’s memory, making it easier for an operator to select a job directly from the applicator instead of downloading a computer file.
The Model 5300 system boasts numerous additional features as well, including a microprocessor controller with downloadable firewall capability, various inputs/outputs, plus durable construction that will withstand harsh industrial environments.
Other options include a 15-foot umbilical connection that enables the remote location of the unit’s controller; an adjustable stand for optimum system orientation; label-on-pad sensor for added functionality; plus beacon light alerts to signal the status of label and ribbon supplies.
In addition, Weber's exclusive Print-Apply software makes it easy to design and store an array of label formats. Applications include bar coding, product identification, shipment addressing and many others.
Weber also manufactures a wide variety of standard and custom-designed pressure-sensitive labels, including label materials that can be recycled with many types of stretch film.
