P3 Label and Note Applicator: Common Issues (FAQ's)...
  1. Recommended Specifications: Manufacturer & Number: Avery #4013 or #7252 Tie & Perf. - White Label

  2. General Overview: The P3 Label & Note Applicator uses a precision servo motor for proper label advancement. The direct coupling of the servo motor to the applicator drive shaft eliminates all clutches, chains and other drives found in other applicator designs.

    Note: The use of thin web backing paper and weak perforations will only lead to web breakage and rethreading down time. If in doubt, use any of the recommended note providers on the Note Vendors link.

    The P3 label and note applicator runs on 120 VAC 10 Amp service. It is important that all care be taken to insure this line is isolated and free of potential electrical spikes and noise. The Applicator should be unplugged from its power source after operation.

    The servo motor, controls and sensors are powered by 24 VDV. The servo motor is programmed through an optical I/O board located in the control box All inputs and outputs originate here and is only accessible by factory personnel. Tampering with this systems rejects warranty.

  4. Double Labeling: Make sure dispense tip isn't too far away from the product. The label must dispense onto the product immediately and not float off of the tip. Check the dispense tip label overhang. The product might be catching the label as it passes underneath. Address labels must not have more that 1/8" overhang. Adjust accordingly. Make sure you are in the right label size mode on the control console. Check product sensor for proper alignment. Make sure the sensor isn't giving off a double signal or a signal when the product isn't present. See line noise below. Check slot sensor for proper functioning. Dust build up may occur in the bottom sensor area.

  5. Erratic Label Placement: The dispense tip may be too high off of the paper or too close. The application head angle could be to steep to the product. The label press down roller could be set to far away from the application area. Make sure the proper label size mode is selected. Ensure the products are crossing under the product sensor properly, and that the product is not jamming under the dispense tip. Check that the Idler drive rollers are engaged.

  6. Note Folding As Applied To Product: The dispense tip may be to close to the paper. It needs to be at least 1/2" off of the product.

  7. Intermittent Misses: Product may not be crossing the product detector. Product sensor reflective tape may be dirty or worn out. Contact Profitpackaging for replacement reflective tape. Product sensor may be out of alignment.

  8. Web Breaking: Weak perforated labels are the most common reason for this happening. The label backing paper may be to thin. Restriction in label stream or tension pads set too tight can also be factors.
