cab sets technological milestones in the development and manufacturing of devices and systems for product marking. Barcode printers are as much part of our delivery program as label printers, print and apply and marking laser systems. Customers in industry, services and trading rely on cab’s high quality standards. Product marking - Made in Germany.
Dinzenhofer (Amoena): First of all we expect precise marking and that the imprints are of good quality and sustainability. A good contrast of the barcodes assures quick and easy scanning both in our house and at the customer. When using new ribbons we first print labels with different print parameters and then check the abrasion with a pull-off test. An error-free print image is the first condition. We furthermore differentiate between the applications. The product labeling must be of a higher quality than the labeling on packaging for logistic purposes.
Dinzenhofer (Amoena): The cab printers enable us to realize everything that is needed. Thereby, we achieve very good results.
„Standard product, not a custom design“
A manufacturer of stamped metal electrical components located in the Northeastern U.S. was looking printer/applicators to replace obsolete custom-built machines used to apply 1.63” x 1” UPC-A barcode labels.
The labels are applied to the pouches as they exit the flow-wrap packaging machine at a rate of 40-100 parts/minute. Experience with their obsolete machines made the requirements for the new machines obvious and clear.
Working together with our local cab distributor, we developed a solution that met and exceeded the customer’s requirements using standard components from cab’s extensive line of modular printers and printer/applicators .
At a filling line 200 liter plastic barrels are passing by on a conveyor belt. The labels on the barrels display Borron® LB, a complexing agent used in the wet process in a beamhouse. Each barrel that arrives at the labeling station has already been automatically filled in the line, provided with a lid and screwed.
Labeling on barrels requires different demands on Hermes C. Each barrel needs to be marked with two labels, not from top but from the side. Hence, Hermes C has been horizontally mounted. A roll-on pad has been chosen as transfer module, because the barrels to be marked are round objects. The roll-on pad sets the left margin of the label to the barrel. At the same time the rotary table, on which the barrel stands on the conveyor belt at this moment, starts to rotate. During the rotational movement, the label is completely rolled on the barrel.
Two-color printing and dispensing
The new Hermes C is worldwide the first system for real-time printing and applying of individual two-color labels.
- For marking of chemicals and hazardous substances
- On drums, buckets, boxes and palettes according to GHS
- Designed for industrial application in production lines
Nominated for German Packaging Award 2015cab wins German Packaging Award 2015 in category "Labels, seals and other packaging aids" with Hermes C. The award was presented on FachPack in Nuremberg in September.
For real-time labeling on packaging or products
According to the type of pad the product is either in motion or not. Labels may be applied on the product from all sides.
The pad is positioned above the peel-off plate. The label is held by the applicator during the printing process. A short stroke cylinder turns the tamp pad horizontally to the labeling position and places the label on the product. The cylinder stroke defines the maximum distance from the peel-off plate to the product.
Performance and quality of a marking mainly relies on the output power and the laser beam‘s focusing. cab marking lasers FL+ are diode-pumped, air-cooled and offer highest beam quality and pulse peak power. An output power of the laser source of 10 up to 50 Watt is available.
Different plano-spherical lenses allow the lasers to mark in a field of 69x69 up to 290x290 mm. The lasers are used to mark on plastic, metal and color-coated surfaces.
The marking lasers FL+ consist of two fiber coupled functional modules: The scan head and the control unit with integrated laser source. The scan head may be assembled in each installation position. Control unit with integrated laser source is available in two different designs.
Design- control - monitor
All FL+ marking lasers have installed the marking software cabLase Editor 5. Key features are:
Graphic design of layouts
Control of marking
Monitoring marking process
cabLase supports marking without the need of a PC. Marking layouts and associated fonts are downloaded and then transferred to the laser control for further management. Allows process control and monitoring by digital signals.
Remote host mode
cabLase allows to be remote controlled via serial, Ethernet or ProfiBus connection by a host control e.g. PC, PLC. Programming commands are available to select layouts, to change marking data, for process control and monitoring.
Remote API interface
Specially designed to be integrated into demanding manufacturing environments. Allows to generate objects, its parameter setting, management and processing of associated layouts and variable contents.
COM Automation Server vergrößern
COM Automation Server
For individual, customizable marking applications. Offers a command library with all functions of the marking software cabLase.
Mark and cut labels in different sizes out of continuous material
The laser label marker LM+ allows to precisely mark and cut labels in different sizes out of continuous material without the need of additional tools.
The labels can then be separated via cutter or rewound by using an external rewinder.
Easy and fast marking of single workpieces and small series
The laser safety housing LSG+65 offers a professional solution that allows an easy and fast marking of single workpieces and small series. The desktop version provides enough working space even for larger workpieces.
The manual operation door is balanced. Keyboard and monitor may, as an option, be installed in an ergonomic way on a pivot arm.
- 6.2 Pivot arm for monitor with keyboard tray
- 6.3 Rotary axis
- 6.6 Suction hose
- 6.7 Mobile cart
Industrial solution that allows the marking of parts in series with the FL+ marking laser
The laser safety housing LSG+100 offers the industrial solution that allows the marking of parts in series with the FL+ marking laser. The robust metal design provides a large working area and enough space for the integration of laser source and industrial PC into 19“ rack mounts.
Keyboard and monitor are installed in an ergonomic way on a pivot arm. The operation door opens and closes pneumatic driven.
Durably mark flat parts as e.g. typeplates or marker sheets made of plastics or metal
The laser typeplate handling THS+ allows to durably mark flat parts as e.g. typeplates or marker sheets made of plastics or metal.
Designed for the processing of nameplates for motors, pumps, control cabinets, and others it is used for applications in demanding industrial environments where the contents needs to be clearly legible even after years.
Two different designs are available
Type 1 “THS+Basic”
Plates or other flat parts up to a thickness of 4 mm are individually inserted into a jig, fed after start, marked and then automatically rejected.
Type 2 “THS+M”
The plates are stacked in a magazine. The upper one of a stack is marked and then automatically rejected.
Protects the operator’s health and prevents the working area and lens from being contaminated
Material processing with lasers produces toxic dust and gaseous contaminants. The extraction system protects the operator’s health and prevents the working area and lens from being contaminated, thus providing a constant laser output power.
The contaminated air of the working area is extracted by a high-power turbine and transported to the filter unit via a flexible hose. Contaminant particles, respectively dust are filtered out in the pre-filter and filter for suspended particles. Gaseous contaminants are absorbed by the activated carbon filter. The cleaned air is then diverted into the environment.
The extraction and filter device AF1 features
- compact design,
- small footprint,
- simple and fast change of filter,
- low sound level due to extract air silencer,
- monitoring of filter saturation and motor.
- 10.5 Pre-filter box
