MINDING THE LABELLING GAP WITH NEW SICK WFS FORK SENSOR

October 10

The new WFS Fork Sensor launched by SICK (UK) brings new precision to label printing for packaging and other production operations. Designed specifically to be mounted at the outlet of the label dispenser, it accurately detects label location and interval on the substrate, allowing rapid adjustment to different label runs with exceptional repeat accuracy.

The SICK WFS’s compact design provides edge detection of non-transparent labels on different web materials, and also double sheet fed incidents. The 50µs response time ensures rapid reaction at high web speeds, and fast response to adjustments.

New labels can be taught-in remotely via a PLC or control panel during operation and on-sensor controls provide fine tuning, and the light / dark switching function enables rapid contrast switching.

The plastic housing allows easy mounting over the edge of the label strip, and is environmentally protected to IP65, to ensure long reliable sensor life under production conditions.

For more information on the SICK WFS sensor, please contact: Ann Attridge or Andrea Hornby on 01727 831121 or email ann.attridge@sick.co.uk or andrea.hornby@sick.co.uk.
