      • A visit to the world’s market leader for breast prostheses

      • What do you expect from your printers?

        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.

        So what is your conclusion?

        Dinzenhofer (Amoena): The cab printers enable us to realize everything that is needed. Thereby, we achieve very good results.

      • Manufacturer of electrical components

      • First of all more flexibility in the marking of flow-wrap pouches

        „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 TFL various chemical containers are labeled with Hermes C systems

      • Labeling on barrels

        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.

            • Extraction and filter device AF1

            • 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,
