Weiler Labeling Systems: New High-Speed Labeling and Coding

Cutting-edge LC-100 coder and LP-100 printer are for pharmaceutical, medical device and biotech product manufacturers and packagers.

Weiler Labeling Systems (WLS), powered by Pro Mach, introduces their new standalone high-speed LC-100 label coder and LP-100 label printer. Between the two models, WLS offers thermal transfer, laser or drop-on-demand printing for coding, serializing and/or print-on-demand applications providing the quality, productivity, and security required in the healthcare industry.

The LC-100 and LP-100 are for manufacturers and contract packagers of over-the-counter (OTC) and regulated pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and medical devices as well as biotech products and more.

Coding labels offline with the LC-100 enables users to supply coded and/or serialized labels to run on existing labelers, which minimizes changes to the labeling operation to simplify validation and keep packaging lines running at peak efficiency.

The continuous-motion, servo-driven LC-100 prints variable data onto pressure-sensitive labels at speeds up to 3,000 in./min, allowing one unit to supply labels to multiple labelers. As a fully standalone unit, the LC-100 unwinds, prints, inspects (if needed) and rewinds labels. It is capable of maintaining a print placement accuracy of +/- 0.020 in. (0.5 mm), depending on the print specifications and label material. In addition, an optional Interceptor is available, which automatically removes rejected labels from the roll.

The LP-100 features a UV-curing drop-on-demand (DOD) printer from Greydon, another Pro Mach company, that can print high-resolution line barcodes, serialized 2D data matrix barcodes and human-readable codes, as well as the full label, including high-impact visual graphics in full color or black-and-white, at speeds up to 7,500 in./min. It offers superior print quality and print wear resistance on most substrates without the need for special coatings or pre-printed areas. The LP-100 enables customers to digitally print on demand and thereby reduce the number of different labels held in inventory. As with the LC-100, an optional Interceptor is available, which automatically removes rejected labels from the roll

The LC-100 and LP-100 both handle a label roll size up to 18 in. (457 mm) in diameter with a 3-in. (76 mm) diameter core. Print changes are quickly made via recipe downloads on the color touchscreen control panel. Label styles can be changed in less than 5 minutes with no tools required and no change parts. Low level, end-of-web and broken web detection can be programmed to flash a light and/or send an alarm to operators. The HMI is password protected with multiple levels of access to help secure the operation.

Equipped with Ethernet ports, the LC-100 and LP-100 can be connected to plant-wide networks to collect data for reporting purposes and enable remote diagnostics. These compact units feature a balcony-style structure including an integrated electrical enclosure. Their construction is conducive to the demands and requirements of pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers.
