The ALStep can hold label rolls up to 300 mm diameter for a long operating time and is equipped with a separate control box with cooling fan which makes it possible to operate it in harsh industrial environments.
This system comes in both S and M versions, for label widths up to 100 and 200 mm respectively. Its maximum label dispensing speed is as high as 30 m/min. (20 m/min. in the M version) thanks to a microprocessor-controlled stepper motor enabling the operator to enter all labelling parameters by means of the display and function keys.
Additionally, the ALStep can be equipped with an array of optional devices to solve specific labelling problems, such as:
- Hot foil printing unit.
- Thermal transfer printing module.
- Pneumatic and air-blow applicators.
- Near-end-of-roll sensor.
- Speed control via encoder.
- Label tracing by thickness capacitive sensor
The ALStep is also available in the E (Economical) version for label widths up to 100 mm at a maximum speed of 15 m/min. It is ideal for the applications where cost reduction is a crucial requirement.
The control panel makes it possible to adjust the main functioning parameters (speed and pre-dispensing) by means of digital indicators (contraves), emitting an end-of-roll or web-break alarm signal. A label sensor for transparent material is optionally available.
