An Overview of Our Label Sensors

The LabelX Label Sensors combine small spot size and fast response for high-speed label detection. LabelX detects a wide variety of adhesive labels on many different types of web backings by differentiating between the gap and the label. The LabelX sensor’s fast response provides precise spatial resolution of the label edge. The Teach Key makes this label sensor fast and easy to use.

Choose from two models:

LabelX – LBX-50

The LBX-50 is the right choice for standard and low contrast labels. In Teach-Standard mode, one press of the Teach Key sets the switching point for standard labels. In Teach-Thin mode, two presses set the switching point for low contrast labels.

LabelX – LBX-100

The LBX-100 provides higher sensitivity for nearly clear labels. In addition to Teach-Standard and Teach-Thin, the LBX-100 also provides Custom Teach-In. Custom Teach-in records a separate measurement on the gap and on the label to allow for optimal detection of difficult labels.

Applications for Our Label Sensors:

  • Label applicator machines
  • Label counting
  • Splice detection
  • Mark detection on translucent film
  • High speed dispensing
  • Label registration
  • Double sheet detection
  • Winder, re-winder
