ARLINGTON HEIGHTS IL—Weber Packaging Solutions will showcase its new Model L-A 6000 label printer applicator at the upcoming Pack Expo International 2016 trade show in Chicago, November 6-9, in Booth #3541.

Answering the demand for newer, faster and more versatile labeling systems, Weber has created the L-A 6000 to meet the requirements of distribution centers to label variable-sized cartons at ever increasing line speeds with accurate shipping information. This reliable and cost-effective printer applicator uses the tamp-blow method to print and apply up to 40 labels per minute to products that vary in height up to 19.68” (500mm).

A sensor initially determines the height of the approaching product for labeling and then the applicator moves to the correct position at high speed. This reduces the traveling distance for the label application, allowing the L-A 6000 to simultaneously label more accurately and up to 50 percent faster than a label printer-applicator with a pneumatically-driven cylinder.

 The newly redesigned microprocessor controller is compact and facilitates easy integration into existing operating environments. The system’s modular construction allows easy access to components for servicing and or maintenance, enabling convenient changing of labels and ribbons as well as easy cleaning of the print module’s thermal print head.

Interchangeable dispensing heads allow the use of different size labels. Using print engines from Zebra or SATO, the L-A 6000 can print labels as thermal-transfer or direct thermal.

Peak performance is achieved using a light-weight servo-driven motor applicator of carbon fiber construction. The L-A 6000 also has an ergonomically adjustable reel holder that handles label rolls up to 13.7” (350mm) in diameter for reduced downtime.
