CTM‘s 360a Series Label Applicator
Evolved from the 360 Series Platform, industry standard, the 360a Series Label Applicator easily configures as a merge, blow-on or tamp-blow applicator. Also driven by a stepper motor, the unit includes state-of-the-art electronics and a “self-teaching” label sensor. On top of that, it is programmable to dispense labels at up to 3000 inches per minute.
The 360a features a combined power supply, amplifier and position controller comprised of a single drive package. The new single-axis digital stepper/servo controller can control up to five tasks simultaneously. All this, plus management of variables with expanded I/O makes this drive well-suited for the most demanding production applications. The 360a controller is also equipped with onboard I/O prewired to external connectors to accommodate the following:
low label – single, double or triple lightstack
web break – encoder velocity compensation
loose loop control – product shape profiling
imprinting – zero downtime configuration
As a result, each machine is shipped preprogrammed and can have the additional hardware installed at a later date for a simple “plug n play” operations. The electronic control assembly even comes with a module, easily removed for repair or replacement, eliminating costly downtime and servicing.
The 6″, 256 colors, TFT touch screen operator interface provides a bold, bright, high-contrast display also with self-diagnostic platforms and multi-level intuitive set-up features. So, it’s programmable to 3000 inches per minute with secondary unwind and vacuum takeaway. Programmed with speed profiling ability.
