Adhesive label sensor

1 January 2019 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

The Label-Eye from Tri-Tronics is a special-purpose gap or slot sensor optimised to sense adhesive labels adhering to a roll of backing paper. The web of labels is directed from a roll across a peeler plate or around a sharp edge. As the web passes around the sharp edge of the peeler plate, the adhesive label peels from the backing material.

The function of the Label-Eye is to look through the backing paper to detect the gap between the labels and signal the labelling machine to stop the dispensing mechanism before the label is completely dislodged from the backing material. With the next ‘up’ label protruding off the end of the peeler plate, it is now perfectly positioned to be applied to the next product as it passes by on a conveyor.

Setup is accomplished by the single push of a button, and the device supports both opaque and translucent labels.
