Stainless Steel structure and FDA approved bands -if necessary- ensure the fulfilling of the current regulations concerning the food industry.
The modular design allows to adapt the system to different product dimensions and special weighing capacities, not included in the standard models.
In adition, LS-4000 has been design to facilitate maintenance tasks (quick replacemente of belts, easy cleaning, ...), as well as any future modifications of the production line (for example, inmediate change of working sense, from left to right or viceversa).
3 conveyors: the first one for the entry and separation of packages, the second one for weighing and the third one for the labelling.
Depending on product characteristics, standard LS-4000 models can have weight conveyors from 350x200 up to 600x400 mm (other dimensions in special cases). Dimensions of entry and labelling conveyors depends on application type.
Precise product detection by means of sensors.
Entrance conveyor: Depending on the characteristics of the installation, it could be advisable (or even required) the use of an entrance conveyor. Its function is to separate those packages incoming to the system with not enough distance one from the other and to guarantee a perfect entry of the products (to avoid any oscillation that might affect the weight stability).
Speed: Up to 110 packages per minute, in weighing and labelling, and 160 in only weighing; speed can be globally configured or associated to each PLU.
In order to obtain a high operating speed, LS-4000 equipments are supplied with two CPUs, one for product transport and weighing and the other one exclusively for printing process.
PLUs: 8.000, with 2 product names, price, tare, 3 dates, bar code format, 10 texts of 24 characters, 1 text of 1.000 characters (for 1.000 PLUS); 4.000 ingredients, 1.000 clients, which will enable to manage the labelling of customer´s orders.
The console and graphic display provide the required information to the user and facilitates the programming of the system.
The LS-4000 can be also supplied with 15” touch screen.
Dynamic, it can be programmed as static if necessary, with the following options:
3 kg - 1 g / 6 kg - 2 g / 15 kg - 5 g.
Special models (upon request):
30 kg - 10 g / 60 kg - 20 g.
Direct thermal or thermal-transfer printing, 3" or 4” printer with long life printhead.
“Air-jet” or mechanical applicator for label application. Air-jet non-contact label applicator guarantees a maximum care even for delicate products, piston applicator offers the maximum precision. Underlabelling is also available.
Up to 3 printers simultaneously, with possiblity of over and under labelling.
20 fixed formats + 79 configurable by the user (from the console or from the PC). Up to 60 information fields in each label.
Logos, imported from PC.
Bar codes: EAN-8, EAN-13, EAN-128, CODE 128, ITF-14, etc.
Generic traceability: up to 20 types of products (beef, fish, cheese, ...).
Labels of totals, up to 3 levels: they can be printed with the LS-4000 itself or with a manual labeller connected to the system (Dibal LP-3000), without interrupting the normal operation of the system.
Label size: from 40 x 50 mm up to 102 x 120 mm, in standard models.
PC: RS-232, Ethernet TCP/IP, Wireless IEEE 802.11b/g.
Connection to Dibal LP-3000 manual la-beller for total labels.
Bar code reader: to read EAN-13 or EAN-128 data.
Digital output to control external devices.
RS-232 PC communications, labeller of totals and bar code reader cannot be simultaneous.
Dibal Windows software:
- RMS: programming the machine and management of production data.
- DLD: graphic label designer.
