Alpha Compact 3-Sided Label Applicator

This Alpha Compact labeling system features a small footprint, and uses a split conveyor for a highly accurate method of applying wrap-around labels on various containers. This system is ideal for presenting and applying labels to clamshell packaging of bakery good, produce and other products that need tamp-evident closures. It can also be used to seal chipboard cartons of hardware products such as nails, screws and other items.

Applies labels up to 4.7" (standard) or 6.0" (optional) wide x 11.8" long
Operates at up to 164 feet/minute
Wraps labels around top, bottom and side of packages

The labels for this system wrap around the top, front and bottom of a product container.  The label is presented as the product travels toward it on the conveyor. The container then actually runs into the label which is wrapped around the top and bottom with a pair of brushes.

If you are looking for a reliable, economical labeling system that is easy to set up and simple to maintain, then check out the Alpha Compact.

Features

Alpha Compact Wipe-On Label Applicator

Alpha Compact label applicator HMI controllerThe Alpha Compact unit automatically unwinds the supply roll and peels the labels from their liner, then wipes the label on to products, cartons or other packages as they travel past the system on a conveyor line. This system applies labels up to 4.7" wide and 11.8" long at speeds up to 164 feet per minute to a tolerance of ±0.03".

Using a split conveyor, this versatile unit applies labels to the top, side and bottom of clamshell or chipboard containers. To accommodate various production environments, the Alpha Compact can be specified for right- or left-hand applications.

Three Interfaces

Depending upon the complexities and demands of the particular labeling operation, the Alpha Compact is available with three separate interfaces:

Panel HMI includes an external operator's panel that provides system control through a pair of potentiometers and four push-buttons.

Display HMI replaces the operator's panel with an LCD display that provides full access to all adjustment parameters.

USB utilizes a USB connection that permits the unit to be configured from a PC.

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.
