Loop System Label Rewinders / Unwinders
The new CAT-3L Loop Rewinder / Unwinder uses a special chassis-mounted photo-detector to start and stop the rewinding action. A “loop” of label stock is created between the two horizontal loop support rods. A photo-detector observes when the loop is no longer at optimum length and turns on or off the rewinding action. The loop length is easily adjustable by the position of the photo-detector beam.
The CAT-3L is ideal for applications with printers that back feed as well as for very sensitive ink-jet printers that cannot tolerate much rewind force without causing undesirable registration or artifact problems. Since the only tension on the label web is the weight of the loop, the rewound roll will be very loose, but the printer will print perfectly. The tension of the loop may be increased with the optionally weighted roller.
With an unmatched 5-Year Parts and Labor Limited Warranty, all LABELMATE USA CAT Rewinders and Unwinders are designed for worry-free 24/7 operation.
