Allen introduces all-electric labelling system

29 June 2011

Allen Coding Systems has introduced Diagraph’s Platinum E Series All Electric Labelling System, which uses 50% less energy than other pneumatic models

Steve Ryan, UK Sales and OEM Manager at Allen Coding, says: “We are now able to supply an all-electric labelling system that offers all the performance and throughput features customers are used to, with the added financial and environmental benefits associated with using less energy.”

As well as using less power than a hair dryer the Platinum E-Series does not use compressed air and is easy to move from one production line to another without the problem of air hoses getting in the way.

Steve continues: “Other benefits of the Platinum E-Series include its reliability. With a typical MTBF (mean time between failures) of 25 million cycles, there is significantly less maintenance and downtime than with alternative label applicator systems of a similar design.”

“Also, with fewer controls than comparable pneumatic systems, it is very easy to use, plus it is extremely flexible and is capable of various orientations to accommodate label application to the side, top, bottom or corner-wrap of substrate panels.”

Features include a counter rotating blade fan that secures labels during application to avoid label skew on users’ products. A wide label range - 1” to 6” wide, ½” to 13” long – ensures a good variety of potential applications, and a “No-Change” tamp pad allows operators to change label sizes without having to alter tamp pad or selection valves.

Operating at up to 16 inches per second with a standard 10” and 20” stroke lengths and offering a print resolution of between 200 and 600dpi, the Platinum E-Series, features a pivoting tamp pad as standard, which conforms to irregular surfaces.
