How does the lid punching machine work?
The paper is fed into the thermal transfer printer via an unwinding unit, where a lot number and best-before date are printed onto it. This step does not happen if the colour sensor detects coloured tape. If it does, the machine doesn’t print anything.
The lid then passes under a camera which checks if the lids contain the correct data and material codes. This Optical Character Recognition (OCR) check recognises the text and, based on that, makes the decision to punch the lid. If necessary, the lid is also perforated. Lids then enter the warehouse.
If a lid has been rejected by the Vision System or has coloured tape used to stick various rolls together, it is not punched out but sent to the waste bin together with the remnants of the roll. This process is called Splice detection.
- Suitable for punching and printing lids of different sizes
- Perforates, prints and punches lids and labels
- Handles rolls of Tyvek, medical paper and other material with max. diameter of 400 mm
- Easily swap out parts to change sizes
- Ideal for high-mix, low-volume production
- Colour sensor prevents printing on positions with coloured tape
- Camera checks presence of correct data and material code on each lid
- Can be combined with other machines like the LAP-C and LAP-L for assembly, packaging and blister-filling-and-sealing machines
