4300 Swing-Tamp Label Printer Applicator

Model 4300 tamp-blow label printer applicatorWeber's economical Model 4300 Pro-Apply swing-tamp printer-applicator features the functionality often limited to higher-duty production systems used to label the leading or trailing side of a product. 

 

By using a swing arm to grab the just-printed label from the print engine, the 4300 Swing-Tamp can apply the label to a passing carton either on the front or back. The quick-action arm can swing into position and back fast enough to allow fairly close spacing.

• Applies labels up to 6" wide x 6" long
• Prints text, bar codes and graphic images @ 203, 300 or 600 dpi
• Non-contact, swing-tamp application 
• Accurate labeling to within ±0.03"



Features

4300 Swing-Tamp Label Printer Applicator
The Model 4300 Pro-Apply Swing-Tamp is a versatile in-line system that combines high-quality label printing and application that ensures the fast, accurate pressure-sensitive labeling of the leading or trailing side of a product along the production line.

Model 4300 Swing-Tamp print apply systemThe Model 4300 Pro-Apply system is designed and engineered by Weber, and is assembled in our own U.S. manufacturing facility. Each unit is equipped with an on-demand, thermal/thermal-transfer print engine from Datamax, SATO or Zebra to produce 203-, 300- or 600-dpi text, bar codes and graphic images at speeds up to 16 ips.

Labels up to 6" wide and 6" long are printed in a cost-efficient, next-out mode, and then are instantly applied to cartons or products on the production or packaging line.

Utilizing the swing-tamp method of application, a printed pressure-sensitive label is automatically peeled from its liner and is retained by vacuum on the applicator's tamp pad. The unit's 90-degree swing arm then extends to apply the label, blowing it on to the package from approximately 0.25".

Several standard tamp-pad sizes are available, and are provided in quick-change configurations. In just a few seconds, the tamp-pad can be removed and another fastened in its place to handle a different size label.

Standard features include durable anodized aluminum construction, an integrated user interface with LCD display, numerous inputs/outputs to facilitate the use of a product sensor or other optional accessories, and stepper motor-driven rewind.

In addition, system components are readily accessible to ease service, and all units feature zero-downtime connectivity to ensure uninterrupted production.

Options include a variable stroke sensor, a label-on-pad sensor, and an adjustable stand that enables the system to be oriented for top, bottom or side application.

Special Features & Options

The Model 4300 swing-tamp system includes a number of noteworthy features that add to the operational versatility of this printer-applicator.

• Tamp-blow application. 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 to a placement accuracy of 0.03".

Numerous I/O's. The system can be interfaced with many types of external devices.

One-to-one media consumption. Special label unwind and rewind dimensions are matched to the system's ribbon supply to ensure they are consumed at the same rate, reducing downtime and eliminating partial changeovers.

Print job storage. Multiple label printing formats can be stored in the system's memory, making it easier for an operator to select a job directly from the applicator instead of downloading a computer file.

The Model 4300 swing-tamp system boasts numerous additional features as well, including an upgradeable microprocessor controller, various inputs/outputs, plus durable construction that will withstand harsh industrial environments.

There also are several optional enhancements that can increase the system's functionality. A product height sensor, for example, enables the printer-applicator to label items of varying heights delivered by the same conveyor.
