With a labeling accuracy of ±0.01 in., the Alpha HSM can handle labels as small as 0.39 in. x 0.39 in. (10-mm x 10-mm) and up to 12.5 in. x 78.7 in. (320-mm x 2000-mm) (W x L). Depending on the label width configuration, the HSM can handle label rolls up to 19 in. in diameter on 3 in. diameter cores.
Three different user interfaces are available including OLED display, external PLC module or a web-based control. And the system is IP65 certified for dust and water spray protection and is constructed of durable aluminum with high rigidity for all working label widths.
The standard mechanical label unwinder and rewinder can be upgraded to a motorized servo-controlled system for higher speeds. Application modules for the HSM include a fixed peeler plate, a swiveling peeler plate, a pneumatic peeler plate, and adjustable peeler plate or a pneumatic applicator. Label sensors can handle standard and transparent labels.
Multiple interfaces allow connections for HMI display, product detector, rotary encoder, I/O signal, Ethernet network, and an aux in and aux out for sensor attachment.
