Product & Label Changeovers

Series 3 labeling systems are extremely user-friendly and easy to adjust when changing products and/or labels.

Conveyor rails plus modules like labeling head(s), wrap-around belt, backing pad, overhead product hold-down and aligning chains all have tool-less adjustments, in addition to quick-reference rulers beveled into the shafts. These design functions provide reference points that ease system operation.

In addition, the Series 3 features simple electronics and touch-pad controls that provide a number of unique advantages.

On-the-fly adjustments – any label head or module can be adjusted without stopping the system; the touch-pad provides the operator with adjustment options

Job memory – up to 100 jobs can be stored in the system's memory to expedite changeovers

Durability – the system's sealed interface provides protection in chemical and other industrial environments

On-board software – the Series 3 communicates with all popular PLCs, including Allen-Bradley and Omron. All software for any possible upgrade or option is pre-loaded; no downloading of proprietary software is required

Tronics Series 3 labeling systems from Weber also include an array of miscellaneous features, including batch counting, real-time products-per-minute display, total products labeled, additional inputs and outputs for missing/low label and for integration with PLCs on other packaging and handling equipment.
