The Weber Model 5200 Label Printer / Applicator
For nearly seventy years, Weber has helped Peacock Bros customers meet all of their labelling and coding needs. We've applied that experience to creating the new line of Model 5200 Series label - printer - applicators.
High Quality Print Resolution
Designed, engineered, and built by Weber, these systems provide high quality printing, precise application, and unprecedented versatility - all at an economical price.
Offering a wide range of on-demand printers - from renowned vendors such as Zebra Technologies - the new Model 5200 Series label applicator provides crisp text, in-spec bar codes, and eye-catching graphics at 203 or 300 dpi resolution.
Depending on the print engine, the Model 5200 Series label applicator outputs pressure sensitive labels from 1' to 6' wide and up to 6' long. The systems can keep pace with high-volume, high-speed production lines with label print speeds varying from 5' to 12' per second.
All Model 5200 Series label applicator systems print labels in a next-out mode, offering a choice of one of three different application methods: tamp-blow, Weber's exclusive Flex-Tamp, or air blow.
Tamp-blow provides precise application without product contact. The label is printed, peeled away from the liner, and held by a vacuum on the applicator pad. As the product or carton moves by, the applicator extends to within .25', gently blowing the label onto the surface. The applicator then immediately retracts to receive the next label.
Available only from Weber, the Flex - Tamp applicator functions in a similar manner to the tamp - blow, but makes gentle contact with the carton or product as it passes. Both the tamp-blow and the flex-tamp methods utilize a newly engineered tamp assembly that enables greater versatility in choosing tamp pad sizes and stroke lengths.
All three methods of application are accurate within - 0.06' and are capable of applying labels to the tops. bottoms, or sides of cartons or products.
Applicator pads are available in a range of standard sizes. And to make the system even more versatile, an optional quick change tamp pad is available. In just a few seconds, the tamp can be removed and another slid into place to accommodate a different size label.
Other options to maximize versatility include a product height sensor, which allows the system to label items of varying height running along the same conveyor. Multiple I/O's permit operation in conjunction with PLC's, Scales, or a PC.
Label and printer ribbon strobe light alerts an optional label-on-pad sensor further enhance the system's operation. An adjustable stand can be added to orient the Model 5200 Series in virtually any position.
The units also include a built-in connection for Weber's LegiLink terminal, which enables the remote input of label information.
The Model 5200 label applicator by Weber is constructed to withstand harsh industrial environments. Vital electronic components are safely housed in a corrosion-resistant stainless steel casement, with an anodized aluminum faceplate facilitating integration of the print engine, label/unwind rewind, and other components.
The system is simple to use, as well. The exterior microprocessor controller and tamp assembly allow the unit to be set-up and adjusted quickly and easily.
All Model 5200 Series printer-applicators can be operated using Weber's exclusive Print-Apply software. This Windows based software package simplifies label design, editing, and printing to help you instantly create great looking labels.
Additionally, Weber manufacturer's pressure-sensitive labels materials suitable for a vast range of applications. Labels are available in a multitude of stock sizes, or can be custom-designed and pre-printed to contain permanent information. Weber also provides thermal transfer ribbons compatible with print-apply use.
Weber's exclusive Model 5200 RFID label printer-applicator makes it easy to print, encode, verify and apply pressure-sensitive RFID smart labels to cartons and pallet loads in one automatic operation. In addition, the system determines if a tag is unverifiable and rejects it prior to application.
Designed and engineered by Weber 5200 RFID offers a selection of thermal transfer print-encode engines that produces smart labels imprinted with text, barcodes and graphics at 203 dpi. Depending upon the print engine selected, smart labels can be 5' wide and 6' long and can be dispensed at up to 12' per second.
As a smart label is printed, the Weber 5200 RFID's integrated encoder simultaneously transfers digital information to the thin, ultra high frequency (UHF) transponder that is embedded in the pressure-sensitive label material.
The encoded information instantly is verified by the system, which then applied the smart label to the top or side of a carton or pallet load as it moves by on a conveyor line. Labels are applied using the non-contact, tamp-blow method, which gently blows the label onto the surface from .25' and is accurate to within .06'.
If a tag is not verifiable, the system's unique swing plate automatically is deployed to intercept the smart label prior to application. This method does not alter print engine operation, media handling or dispensing, yet collects and counts the rejected labels for subsequent disposition.
The print-encode engines, which encode EPC UHF Class 1 transponders, are fully upgradable to meet future EPC Generation2 protocols. In addition, Weber is offering special retrofit kits that will enable present users of Model 5200 printer-applicators to upgrade their units to meet the requirements of smart labelling without completely replacing existing systems.
The Weber 5200 RFID is constructed to withstand harsh industrial environments. Vital electronic components are safely housed inside the applicators corrosion resistant, stainless steel casement.
Labels are formatted using Weber's Print-Apply software, a package that combines label design, editing and printing with RFID encoding to create great-looking, readable smart labels.
Pressure sensitive smart labels embedded with EPC UHF Class 1 transponders are available from Weber. These labels are also ideal for high-quality thermal transfer - direct thermal imprinting. Weber supplies a variety of compatible thermal-transfer ribbons as well.
