Weber Packaging Solutions (www.weberpackaging.com) has introduced its all-new Alpha Compact label applicator, an economical system that features a small footprint, yet uses the highly-accurate wipe-on method of application to affix pressure-sensitive labels to packages and products.

Weber’s Alpha Compact automatically unwinds its supply roll and peels the labels from their liner, then precisely applies them to products or packages as they pass by on a conveyor line. The standard unit applies labels up to 4.7 inches wide and 11.8 inches long at speeds up to 164 feet per minute, with ±0.03 inch placement accuracy.

The versatile Alpha Compact can be oriented to apply labels to the sides, top or bottom of packages. To accommodate various production environments, the unit can be specified for right or left-hand applications.

Depending upon the complexity and demands of the particular labeling operation, the Alpha Compact is available in three separate interfaces:
  •     An external panel that provides control through a pair of potentiometers and push-buttons;

  •     an external LCD display;

  •     and USB connection that permits PC-based configurations.
Each version of the Alpha Compact features rugged die-cast aluminum construction, single-key calibration, automatic recognition of missing labels, in-production speed adjustment, and more.
