FAQ

Yes.  We do this by means of an pacing conveyor and guide rails.

This is highly dependent on size of the label & label content.  A safe number is around 120-130 per minute.

Yes.  However, the label contents must be stored on our system (SDS Controller).  Even if the plant network goes down our system will continue to weigh boxes and print a label.  When the network is back up, it can access our on-board SQL database to pull the weight information for each box.

Primary Components

  • Conveyor with product guides to move products past labeling applicators
  • Top and/or Bottom Labeler to apply labels to product
  • Optional Printer for on-demand real-time printing

As the product moves along the conveyor, photoeyes will determine the leading edge. Once the product interrupts the photoeyes, a countdown will begin. After a predetermined time a label will be applied as the product moves over the bottom label applicator. The rate of label advancement matches the conveyor speed thereby ensuring proper label placement. The sequence above is the same whether a top or bottom label is applied.
Labels are advanced through a gap in the conveyor.

For applications needing a label on both the top and bottom of the package, Vande Berg Scales will build a combination top/bottom label applicator that exactly matches your needs.
