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.
