Weber to Highlight Exclusive Line of Label Printer-Applicators at Pack Expo 2002

Applications: Weber labeling and coding systems are used throughout industry, in markets as diverse as food and fabricated metal, pharmaceuticals and lumber, chemical and consumer products -- virtually any business where products or packages need to be identified.

Arlington Heights, IL - Weber Marking Systems will demonstrate a complete offering of labeling and coding systems at Pack Expo 2002 booth S-2274, with special emphasis on its exclusive Model 5200 label printer-applicator. The show will be held November 3-7 at Chicago's McCormick Place.

Designed, engineered and manufactured by Weber, the Model 5200 comes with a choice of high-density thermal/thermal-transfer print engines that produce labels with text, bar codes and graphics. Print engines are available in 203- or 300-dpi models and accommodate pressure-sensitive labels up to 6" wide by 6" long at print speeds up to 12" per second.

The versatile Model 5200 offers three label placement methods in order to address the diverse range of applications found throughout industry. Air-blow, flex-tamp, and tamp-blow methods all provide precise label positioning of +/- 0.03", and are capable of applying labels to the tops or sides of products, cartons, and other packages as they travel down conveyor lines.

Many options also are available for the Model 5200. These include a quick-change tamp pad that allows the systems to handle different label sizes with ease, and a product height sensor to enable the unit to label items of differing heights.
