Assembling pre-printed labels

FRITSCH expands the FEEDER range with a labelFEEDER

In electronics manufacturing, the labelling and tracing of assembly groups is becoming increasingly important. 

With the labelFEEDER, Fritsch GmbH provides a professional solution to the automatic application of labels on PCBs, or even on specific components. The feeder feeds the printed labels from the roll to the extraction position in the pick & place machine. A vacuum nozzle picks up the label and places it in the exact desired position.

The design of the labelFEEDER is based on the smart tapeFEEDER that has been successfully used for many years. The labelFEEDER can thus be put in any place on a feeder rack of the placeALL® pick & place machine. Its slim design means that only three feeder slots are required. It can apply labels from 4x4mm to 30x30mm.

All settings can be made via a four-button control directly on the feeder. Its precision, short set-up times when changing the label and the easy adjustability to the usual label sizes make the feeder an efficient labelling solution. 

Together with the PATrace module, all the data needed for continuous traceability in manufacturing PCBs is collected.
