Model 4300 tamp-blow label printer applicator


4300 Tamp-Blow Label Printer Applicator

Model 4300 tamp-blow label printer applicatorWeber's economical Model 4300 Pro-Apply label printer-applicators feature the functionality often limited to higher-duty production systems. 

The result is a versatile in-line system combining high-quality label printing and application that ensures fast, accurate pressure-sensitive labeling.

The Model 4300 Pro-Apply system is designed and engineered by Weber, and are assembled in our own U.S. manufacturing facility. Each unit is equipped with an on-demand, thermal/thermaltransfer 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.

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

• Various tamp lengths and pad sizes available
 Available with RFID capability

Increase Labeling Efficiency with Transthin 400 Labels

Do you run high-speed labeling systems on your production lines? Our new Transthin 400 is a blank thermal-transfer label material that features both a thinner facesheet and a thinner release liner. The facesheet is just 2.1 mils thick but still retains the excellent dispensing characteristics required for successful print-apply application.  

Transthin 400 label materialThe release liner is just 1.5 mils thick but also retains the strength needed for the tension of the rewind reel. Transthin 400 uses a versatile acrylic emulsion adhesive that is well suited for corrugated and plastic packaging. 

The combination of a thinner liner and thinner facesheet adds up to more labels per 12" roll. Typically a 4" x 6" roll now contains 3820 labels (1950') instead of just 2500. That's over 50% more labels per roll! And that means you can run your production line longer without as many changeover stops and starts.

4300 Tamp-Blow Label Printer Applicator
Model 4300 print apply systemThe Model 4300 Pro-Apply is a versatile in-line system that combines high-quality label printing and application that ensures fast, accurate pressure-sensitive labeling.

The Model 4300 Pro-Apply system is designed and engineered by Weber, and is assembled in our own U.S. manufacturing facility.

Model 4300 Pro-Apply label printer applicator labeling cartonLabels 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 tamp-blow 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 pad is extended (select from 2" to 12" strokes) and blown onto 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.

Special Features & Options

The Model 4300 tamp-blow 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 tamp-blow 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.
