Wipe G2 Applicator Technical Specifications
The EvolabelTM Wipe G2 applicator is developed with ease of use, reliability, and safety in focus. It is fully automatic and no daily adjustments or calibrations are needed. The applicator works with a rotational, step motor driven motion and is built with the EvolabelTM patented applicator pad range to achieve optimal label handling. The patented pads create vacuum locally by feeding compressed air from the applicator.
The Wipe G2 can be mounted on all EvolabelTM printers and is easily mounted with two screws, a tube for compressed air, and an eApplicator cable for the electronic interface.
The applicator is controlled by the printer, normally by using the signal from an external photo sensor as a direct input to detect the product to be labeled. For information about the printers, we refer to the manual Installation, Maintenance & Service D43/T43/T63.
The Wipe G2 applicator is designed for print and apply systems with high demands on performance; primarily corner wrap top-front labeling or top and/or front labeling. The applicator may usefully be equipped with a motorized stand to handle batches with varying product heights and label positions.
A print and apply application with a Wipe G2 normally feeds the labels horizontally with the printed side facing up. The feed direction is usually backward relative the product conveyor's direction.
Wipe G2 monting on Evolabel T43:
Wipe G2 has 6 different arm lengths: 125, 150, 175, 200, 250 and 350 mm
The applicator arm is equipped with a 12° or 25° angle mount as standard (25° for 125-175 mm arms and 12° for >=200 mm arms). The angle mount angles the pad and enables full pad applying and increases the flexibility of utility. The angle mount is used in most Wipe G2 applications. Under specific circumstances it is necessary to dismount the angle mount and use a straight pad.
