Clear Label Sensor Now Offers "Gap Quickset" for Easier Setup
Press release date: February 19, 2013
While not a teach function, the new Gap Quickset does save the operator a little time by automatically adjusting for the gap that is currently in the sensor, saving the user a few button clicks. If the operator thinks the setting can be improved, he or she can just make a small adjustment with a few clicks until satisfied.
In terms of speed and registration accuracy, ultrasonic technology is distinctly inferior to the capacitive technology found in Lion Precision’s other clear label sensors. A detailed study of different label sensor technologies is available at labelsensors.com. The LRD8200 is a response to the packaging industry’s demand for a sensor that works with the largest possible range of materials.
Lion Precision designed the world’s first clear label sensor, the LRD2100 in 1995. The sensor started a small revolution in packaging machinery as the added expense of web eyemarks was no longer required. The new capacitive technology performed equally well on standard paper labels, eliminating the need for traditional optical sensors entirely.
