In response to customer demand, Lion Precision of St. Paul, MN, has released an optional extended baseplate for the new LRD8200 Ultrasonic Label Sensor.

According to Mark Kretschmar, communication manager, “The LRD8200 has been very successful since it launched, but several users have suggested that a longer baseplate to support wider webs would give them better web tracking on their machines.”

The optional baseplate extends two inches (50 mm) from the end of the sensor. The standard baseplate is easily replaced by the user by removing a single screw. The extended baseplates can be purchased separately or the label sensor can be shipped with the extended baseplate installed.

More detail on the LRD8200 and the extended baseplate is available at where sensors and accessories can be purchased online.

Lion Precision’s LRD Label Sensors are the world’s leading clear-label sensors for application registration and counting applications.
