• Modular design provides eight different label application configurations
• Choose from a wide range of 203-, 300- and 600-dpi print engines
• Capable of handling print speeds up to 16 ips
• Numerous I/O's ease interfacing with external devices
• Monitor operation via a web browser
• Available with RFID capability
Weber’s Model 5300 system is redefining the meaning of versatility in pressure-sensitive label printing and application.
In addition to offering a broad selection of high-quality print engines that feature various print resolutions and label dispensing rates, the Model 5300 system is available with optional RFID print-encode engines.
Standard direct- and thermal-transfer print engines from manufacturers Zebra, Sato and Datamax produce text, bar codes and graphic images at 203-, 300- or 600-dpi. The Zebra-based RFID models combine these printing capabilities with the encoding and verification of RFID inlays to meet EPC Gen 2 protocols.
The Model 5300 printer-applicator system’s modular design provides one standard system, yet a choice of eight distinct methods of label application that are accurate to ±0.03 inch:
• Tamp-blow. This is a very popular method of air-assisted label placement used with standard applications, and is particularly useful in the labeling of recessed areas. A printed label is fed onto a tamp pad and held by vacuum, a pneumatic cylinder extends to within .25 inch of the product, and the label is blown onto its surface.
• Air-blow. Another air-assisted process. The label is blown onto the product from a fixed distance without the aid of a pneumatic cylinder.
• Direct tamp. This method is similar to tamp-blow, but the flexible tamp pad makes direct contact with the product during application.
• Swing-tamp. Labels are applied to the front or back of a product using a 90-degree swing arm applicator and tamp-blow technology.
• Twin-tamp. Special rotary arm enables the application of two labels to the front and side of a product; or its side and back; or one label can be placed on the front, side or back of an item using tamp-blow technology.
• Corner-wrap. One label is wrapped around the corner of a case using an articulating, contact method of application.
• Dual-Label. For the printing and two-label, adjacent side labeling of pallets in line.
• Electric tamp-blow. Electrically-operated cylinder extends to the product and the label is blown onto its surface. Ideal for very high-speed labeling.
In addition, an optional secondary label wipe-down station is available as a complement to any of the above application methods. Quick-change tamp pads also may be ordered to accommodate various label sizes.
The Model 5300 labeling system’s modular design ensures that the system can be reconfigured to address subsequent print-and-apply labeling requirements. This modularity can preclude the future acquisition of an additional printer-applicator.
Special Features & Options
The Model 5300 system includes a number of noteworthy features that add to the operational versatility of this printer-applicator:
Model 5300 feature include browser-based monitoring, one-to-one media consumption and remote location of the unit's controller.
• 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.
