Simple, Fast, Accurate, and Repeatable Changeovers

Tool–Less Setup

The Tronics S3O automatic label applicator is crafted with laser machined precision. Large stainless steel shafts and pressed bushings allow fingertip control over a comprehensive range of 4-axis pitch-n-roll label head setup adjustments. Further, gradient ruled reference marks on adjustment shafts permit repeat jobs to be quickly and easily reproduced in a consistent and repeatable manner.

Touch Panel with 100 Job Memory

Forget about having to navigate through annoying and confusing menu screens. With Tronics labelers, all control panel adjustments are truly one touch away, so making on-the-fly adjustments during production are simple and instantaneous. And, because the touch panel swivels, adjustments can easily be made from either side of the machine. The S3O touch panel stores up to 100 jobs and makes recalling previous labeling jobs for a specific product a snap.

Synchronized Stepper Motor System

All Tronics S3O label application modules contain individual stepper motors that are fully synchronized with the product conveyors heavy duty servo motor and right angle gearbox (there are not any chains or sprockets on the conveyor drive to stretch or wear out). This ensures consistently accurate label placement regardless of changing production speeds. This also proves valuable in machine setup as the operator can setup a new product at crawl speeds knowing the label position will remain constant upon increasing the machine speed to production rates after setup.

Shape & Material

Depending on configuration, the S3O machine can label round, flat sided, Oval and oddly shaped products made from plastic, glass, metal, corrugated, and other materials. Customers turn to Tronics for clear, foil, print & apply, RFID, and crescent shaped labeling applications. Labels can be accurately applied to fronts, backs, tops, bottoms, inside recessed surfaces, and wrapped around right angles on 2, 3, and 4 sides of the product.

Large Sizes

The S3O comes standard with a 4.5” wide and 7.5″W conveyor and the ability to run up to a 8.75” high label web. This allows the S3O to not only run many shapes and materials but containers as large as a 10 gallon container.

…Right now. In the field. Order an upgrade today and run product TOMORROW!

Need to run a wrap, but don’t have a wraparound module? With Tronics, upgrades are fast and easy. If needed, we’ll ship a wrap module to you via next day air and you can be running round bottles the very next day. That’s because most field upgrades can be installed by you, with a minimum of downtime or cost. This advantage eliminates costly downtime incurred when sending a machine back to the OEM for upgrades, or the expense of having an OEM labeler technician flown in to perform the work. Competing equipment often cannot even be upgraded or it is too cost prohibitive to do so resulting in having to buy yet another entire labeler which is why Contract Packagers love the Series 3 labeler and the fact it is scalable.

Service Second to None

S3O Upgradeability … We’re ready when you are

Well Designed with Easy Access & Standardized Components

The secret to the S3O having such a great service reputation is inherent in the design itself.
Simplicity and standardization make the S3O easy to service. One such example is how the electronics slide out towards the technician for easy access due to being mounted on electrical drawers.

Well Documented…

Your S3O label applicator comes with a hard copy and electronic version of a comprehensive owner’s manual. The manual includes exploded CAD drawings and wire schematics. Each drawing includes a corresponding parts list / parts number shown directly on the drawing itself. The owner’s manual also includes an easy to understand operating manual / troubleshooting guide section complete with illustrations and color photographs.
