Cables flagged by labels

Cables flagged by labels

Human beings have been wiring the world since the late 19th century. Cables, whether installed on a permanent basis or in flexible use, regulate electrical goods and electronics, telecommunication services, industrial and home technology. By marking them reliably with labels, data streams, network and voice communication are assured. Handwritten notes have long since ceased to meet the highest standards. Regulations require, for example, data readable by machines, encoding, resistances and protection from manipulation. cab provides suitable equipment.

Thermal transfer method

Cables can be labeled in many ways, depending on the application – amongst others, by labels indicating types or performance, flagging or shrink tubing. In particular in the automotive sector, but also in chemical and pharmaceutical industries, liquids, solvents or chemicals are in use. Mechanical wear is also a factor. Outdoors, markings are exposed to weather conditions, in technical or cryogenic applications to extreme temperatures. Customers benefit from cab’s long-term experience. cab thermal transfer printers enable maximum printable resolutions of 600 dpi, high contrast and sharp-edge print images even in marginal areas. So, even tiny fonts can be verified with the eye and micro barcodes be verified perfectly by scanners. Provided that proper label and ribbon materials have been in use, thermal print images remain legible during processing, testing, storage and transport.

Label flags

If space to apply a label is limited, low-tolerance systems are required. Devices of the HERMES Q series are capable of this with labels as small as 3 x 4 mm. Labels intended to be processed automatically by a cab flag applicator are optimized by cab. Serial numbers or barcodes can be printed on labels and these labels be fold around cables.

Sealing labels prevent from manipulation, either by tearing on removal or by leaving emblems on a surface, being no longer fully transferable.

Wrap-around labels

In addition to identification, such labels also perform protective tasks. Instructions for use or other small texts on a label can be preserved with the help of a protective foil. cab is currently developing a special applicator, to be assembled to a SQUIX label printer in case of applying wrap-around labels onto cylindrical items such as single wires, strands, cables, hoses or round rods.

Shrink tubes

Shrink tubes have proven worthy in electrical cabinet construction and in automation. The plastic tubes contract under heat. Objects which are covered by shrink tubes are electrically insulated. Labeling enables reliable identification and classification. cab provides printers designed for shrink tube labeling with centered material guidance. The XD4T printer model has been designed for printing two-sided. Therefore, two print heads are assembled head to head on the device. Electrostatic charge is derived after printing using a brush. When printing at high heating energy, a separator enables reliable processes by preventing the thermal transfer ribbon from sticking to the material. An additional roller keeps the material in tension.

Fully automatic labeling: applicators for any operation
Every industrial plant has specific requests for fully automatic labeling. Cycle times are decisive, so are variable to be processed at high speed. Whether objects are at rest or moved on a conveyor when being labeled may be as well of importance, as well as the direction from which labels are to be applied. HERMES Q and SQUIX printing systems by cab can be individually combined with applicators or a
Systems dedicated to labeling / Micro-screw tubes as a sample
Convey 180 uncapped tubes. Take liquid from a bottle and distribute into each tube. Pick up screw caps from a tray, seal each tube and check by sensor. Apply a label to each tube. Insert the tubes to racks, starting at position X on rack Y. A cab partner provides solutions for such or similar lab workflows. Pharmacists in research, food and veterinary diagnostics benefit from custom-made automats, operated stand-alone
Always on track: WICON, the cable labeler
Single wires and strands, hoses, tubes and round rods require specific labeling. Their surfaces may be resistant to bending or elastic, grippy or slippery. They are in most cases exposed to rough influences and high mechanical stress. Small diameters in particular offer little space. cab provides labels with transparent laminate. Labels are thus covered and information is protected. Wrap-around labels can be printed with selected models of the cab SQUIX
Smart Packaging - Cobot, take over label!
cab solutions have been enabling reliable labeling for more than 45 years. Companies specialized in the packing of industrial and consumer goods appreciate the wide range of operations possible with the units and systems, as well as their integrability to fully automatic packing lines. At the cab Fachpack booth, a collaborative robot application complements proven disciplines of labeling. Already in 2012 cab demonstrated with an early HERMES system how to apply
