Quick and reliable label detection

Self-adhesive labels are applied to different packaging. The process of dispensing labels is synchronized so that labels are applied in the correct position. The WFS fork sensor detects the label position and can be mounted near the dispenser edge. Difficulty in detecting the label gap is finally eliminated – the position can be taught-in and adjusted through the IO-Link while the process is running.
