Time To Test-Drive Weber's Newest Print-Apply System

Weber has been building label printer applicators for over 25 years and has thousands of ultra-reliable systems happily churning out labeled packages around the world. Our Models 5100, 5200, and 5300 print-apply systems have evolved over the years from simple to complex, with a variety of label application arms for just about any production line. You wouldn't believe some of the things we are successfully putting labels on.

But when our Engineering Team sat down to devise the next generation of Weber printer applicators, they decided to address the long wish-list of features suggested by our customers. (Most made sense, though asking for tail fins might have been asking too much.) We wanted to build the most reliable print-apply system available with efforts to reduce maintenance and running costs, and keep the system user-friendly and easy to operate. 

After a few years of design, testing and implementation, Weber is now pleased to roll out our new Model 4050 tamp-blow printer applicator. The unit is manufactured in the USA at our headquarters in Arlington Heights, IL. It uses a modular base system design for fast assembly, minimal maintenance, and reduced downtime. The 4050 allows the customers to provide a non-contact method of labelling products quickly and efficiently on their production line.   

The applicator uses a modulated vacuum to reduce air consumption, using over 80% less air than previous models. And while other brands are using air-free solutions via fans, we saw that the convenience of using fans falters from the cost of maintenance and downtime. The 4050 labeler has a clear cover over the pneumatic system which makes it easy to view and access during operation.

The Model 4050 also features a powered label unwind and rewind to reduce print engine wear and provide smooth feeding of the supply roll while not creating as much pull friction on the print head. Anyone who uses a print apply system knows that the number one problem is the constant tugging of the labels from the supply roll that can actually wear grooves in the rollers and wear down the print head from continuous use. The powered unwind/rewinders all but eliminate that wear.

Meet the Weber LA-6000 Variable-Height Labeling System

Everyone loves to shop online. Great deals. Usually free shipping. Sales tax - maybe. And the number of shoppers is growing at an ever-increasing rate.

But someone has to ship all those products. And if you are a company that sells a wide range of packages, you can run into a bottleneck when trying to apply shipping labels to cartons as they fly down the conveyor of your distribution center. You need label printer-applicators that ccan keep up with demand yet be flexible enough to handle variable-height labeling.

Answering the demand for newer, faster and more versatile labeling systems, Weber has created the LA-6000 Label Printer Applicator to meet the requirements of distribution centers to label variable-sized cartons at ever increasing line speeds with accurate shipping information. This reliable and cost-effective printer applicator uses the tamp-blow method to print and apply up to 40 labels per minute to products that vary in height up to 19.68” (500mm).
