An aspect of self-adhesive labelling which often gives cause for concern is the loss of production time incurred by label replenishment. Such losses become increasingly significant as machine speeds increase – more frequent reel change-overs result in more production down time.
The Easisplice overcomes this concern by enabling reel change-overs to take place with no interruption to the supply of labels to the label head.
The Easisplice is supplied as a free-standing unit complete with an angled twisting bracket.
The Easisplice unit holds two reels of labels – one acts as the current label supply while the other is positioned to facilitate rapid splicing. A microprocessor control unit working in conjunction with photoelectric cells ensures that a constant buffer stock of labels is available in the buffer bin to the labelling machine.
As the current label reel nears its end, a flashing beacon alerts the operator, who triggers the reel to fully dispense into the buffer bin.
The end of the label reel is automatically detected on the splicing table, signaling the Easisplice to stop. The second reel is manually spliced whilst labelling continues using the labels in the buffer bin. Once the splice is made a reset button is activated and uninterrupted labelling continues
