The operator positions the tags in the loader and uses the software to start the cycle. At this point, the tags are automatically marked, picked by the Pick&Place system (equipped with a suction cup) and then unloaded.
A second magazine (a different from the one used for loading) is used for unloading, for “ordered unloading”. Otherwise, a slide unloads the tags (“disorderly unloading”).
The Tower Label laser marker can have up to 4 loaders for higher productivity. Loaders can be used for loading or unloading based on the laser marking cycle demands.
