Cutting of continuous labels without print marks

Continuous labels for bottles must be cut in exactly the right place before they are applied. The PS30 pattern sensor locates the cutting position precisely without print marks, even at high process speeds of up to 10 m/s. The sensor reads a pattern based only on the contrasts in the printed image and calculates the position sought from that pattern. This opens up a whole new world of design freedom for more attractive labels.
