Labelmate USA, a manufacturer of tabletop label handling equipment, has introduced its new zero tension loop rewinder, the ZCAT-3.
The ZCAT-3 Zero Tension Loop Rewinder is a new tabletop label rewinder that places no tension whatsoever on a printer while simultaneously yielding a consistent and tightly rewound roll. The ZCAT-3 uses a chassis-mounted photo-detector to start and stop the rewinding action. A "loop" of labelstock is created between an adjustable roller and a nip roller assembly thereby eliminating all tension on the printer, and the photo-detector turns the rewinding action on and off to maintain the optimum depth of the loop.
