ALpeel is a fully metallised industrial label dispenser which is easy to operate and extremely flexible, working with virtually any type of label commonly in use, automatically peeling and presenting a label to the operator off its backing paper for easy removal as the last label is removed.
ALpeel can dramatically improve the efficiency of many manual application labelling tasks, either providing the perfect entry to automatic labelling or the best "compromise" on the rare occasions it is either not possible or not cost effective to implement a fully automatic labelling solution.
ALpeel can accommodate label reels up to an impressive 300mm in diameter, equivalent to most fully automatic label applicators and much greater than the majority of desktop label printers, meaning you can be sure your label reel will fit the unit. It is available in two model widths:
- up to 100 mm
- up to 200 mm
(Maximum label leading edge width on the reel)
The standard ALpeel unit is fitted with a fixed position self learning photocell label sensor which automatically detects the contrast difference between the label and its carrier backing paper, presenting the label on the peeler almost fully dispensed for easy removal. After the label is removed the next label will be automatically dispensed.
Where circular or transparent labels are required to be dispensed, ALpeel can be supplied with a moveable (i.e. allowing it to be positioned on the arc of a circle or shaped label to correctly stop the label on the peeler) mechanical micro switch label sensor in lieu of the standard photocell.
The mechanical sensor detects the difference in the label thickness from the backing paper rather than the contrast difference. However it should be noted that the micro switch version of the machine includes a "clicker" which requires pressing for the next label to be dispensed (can normally be activated as the last label is removed) rather than auto advancing as per the photocell version.
Further options include a pre-selection counter - i.e. to dispense a definable quantity of labels, and a battery pack with handle, to allow up to 4 hours of autonomous operation, with built in battery charger mounted internally next to the units control card.
As standard all models also include a manual jog function button positioned on the front of the machine and an acoustic alarm in the event of label reel end or break.
