WT-25

WT-25

ECONOMICAL

FAST, EASY TO USE

REQUIRES PRACTICALLY NO SET-UP TIME

QUICKLY REWINDS LARGE MASTER ROLLS INTO ROLLS OF PREDETERMINED LENGTH

GENERAL INFORMATION

Since their introduction in 1976, Web Techniques roll label rewinders have earned a reputation for providing an economical and efficient means of rewinding printed material. With an optional Razor Blade Slitting Attachment, they can also provide an inexpensive means of slitting multiple-width pressure-sensitive die-cut labels into individual rolls. The WT-25 does not require a skilled operator so labor costs are low.

Running speed is infinitely variable. Dynamic braking and solid state reversing let you reverse the direction of rotation of the rewind instantly (by flipping a switch) without damaging the motor or control. The large control cabinet has ample room for ease of servicing.

To prevent overruns, separate slowdown and stop points can be programmed into the high-speed electronic predetermining counter. Automatic bi-directional counting is incorporated so that the counter subtracts when the web is manually pulled backwards.

All idler rolls are 3 inches in diameter to prevent distressing and lifting off of labels during the rewind process. The heavy-duty steel frame and extra thick (1-3/4 inch) laminated table top provide a rugged, stable unit. The 14-gauge stainless steel top is durable and easy to clean.

Operators like the attractive appearance, convenient work height, easily accessible controls, and smooth quiet operation.

WT-25LC

WT-25LC

BUILT-IN PHOTOELECTRIC COUNTING SYSTEM

QUICKLY COUNT THE NUMBER OF LABELS ON A ROLL

HELPS SOLVE LABEL INVENTORY PROBLEMS

GENERAL INFORMATION

The WT-25LC features a highly refined photoelectric counting system. This makes it ideally suited to the pharmaceutical roll label printing and packaging industries where label count reconciliation is required. For simple operations, the counting system can be set to operate in the length counting mode.

PHOTOELECTRIC COUNTING SYSTEM

A thru-beam type scanner is supplied as standard equipment. The web passes between a light source and a photodetector. Pressure-sensitive die-cut labels with a space between them appear as dark images to the scanner. This scanner can also be used to count labels with punched holes.

A “Count/Standby” switch allows the unit to retain its count and resume when desired. A “Manually Increment Count” pushbutton allows the operator to compensate for labels that have passed the scanner location during initial set-up. When used in conjunction with the “Count Up/Count Down” switch, the operator can also subtract counts when removing labels or pulling the web backwards.

An indicator light reminds the operator that the counter is in the “Count Down” mode and must be returned to the “Count Up” mode before resuming normal operation.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM FEATURES

The electrical system was designed for high reliability, safety, and ease of maintenance. Special attention was also given to providing for future expansion. Spare terminals at strategic points make it easy for customers and systems integrators to connect auxiliary equipment. This includes terminals to connect “Stop” signals from external apparatus and terminals to operate other devices when the WT-25LC motor is started or stopped. A set of spare terminals in the photoelectric counting system makes trigger pulses available to such devices as bar code readers and imprinters.

WT-25LCI

 

WT-25LCI

WT-25LCI

SYNCHRONIZED STROBE LIGHT FOR HIGH-SPEED VISUAL INSPECTION

PHOTOELECTRICALLY COUNTS THE NUMBER OF LABELS ON A ROLL

GENERAL INFORMATION

The WT-25LCI incorporates many features that make it a practical alternative to expensive upright slitter/rewinder machines. It has an automatically synchronized strobe light that flashes with each passing label. This provides a “Stand Still” effect permitting the operator to evaluate label print quality at high running speeds.

The oversize table top and long web path provide additional stopping time when a defect is observed-before it is wound onto the rewind roll. The large table top also makes the WT-25LCI an ideal web handling platform for such devices as bar code validators, optical character recognition (machine vision) systems, and imprinting devices.

Additionally, the highly refined photoelectric counting system makes this machine well suited to the pharmaceutical roll label printing and packaging industries where label count reconciliation is required. For simple operations, the counting system can be set to operate in the length counting mode.
