ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. – With the packaging industry asking for higher labeling speeds and more flexibility, Weber Packaging Solutions has just announced the arrival of its newest label applicator: the Alpha HSM. Featuring modular construction, this high-speed labeling system can be configured in a variety of models that can handle multiple speeds and label sizes.

Every packaging line is different, so Weber engineered the modular Alpha HSM so that it can be ordered in ten different versions to fit just about any labeling application. Available in right- or left-hand versions, the Alpha HSM has 5.3” (135mm), 7.8” (200mm), 9.8” (250mm) and 12.6” (320mm) label width versions. The HSM can keep up with line speeds up to 500 feet/minute.

With a labeling accuracy of ±0.01”, the Alpha HSM can handle labels as small as 0.39” x 0.39” (10mm x 10mm) and up to 12.5” x 78.7” (320mm x 2000mm) (W x L). Depending on the label width configuration, the HSM can handle label rolls up to 19” in diameter on 3” diameter cores.

Three different user interfaces are available including OLED display, external PLC module or a web-based control. And the system is IP65 certified for dust and water spray protection and is constructed of durable aluminum with high rigidity for all working label widths.

The standard mechanical label unwinder and rewinder can be upgraded to a motorized servo-controlled system for higher speeds. Application modules for the HSM include a fixed peeler plate, a swiveling peeler plate, a pneumatic peeler plate, and adjustable peeler plate or a pneumatic applicator. Label sensors can handle standard and transparent labels.

Multiple interfaces allow connections for HMI display, product detector, rotary encoder, I/O signal, Ethernet network, and an aux in and aux out for sensor attachment.
