For cylindric products
We present to you our newest product, which is about to be launched very soon WICON – a wrap-around applicator for cylindric products.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. Transparent laminate protects data blocks on a label persistently from environmental impacts. Items are inserted in horizontal orientation and centered by panels. They can be aligned 25 mm to 100 mm (1“ to 4“) distant to the margin of a label using a stop. Printing a label and wrapping it around an item takes 1.8 to 6 seconds, depending on the number of wrap-arounds. Operation starts as soon as an item has been inserted. It may be triggered also by a foot switch, a data interface or an I/O interface.
Operations require materials guided centered on a printer, as well as a slim DR4-M60 print roller. For printing this type of labels, we recommend the cab label printer model SQUIX 4MP with centered material guidance.
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 item. A finger guard covering the feed opening prevents items from being inserted or removed during wrapping around.
Only wrap-around labels provided by the manufacturer guarantee reliable applications. Make sure item surfaces are clean and free of lubricants. Pivoting the applicator allows label rolls or ribbons been replaced easily. A service door enables access to the wrapper head in cases of errors, such as label jams.
