Automatic Label Application Machines
The S3S - Front and Back, Wrap Around, Premier, Stainless Steel

The S3S – Series 3 Premier labeler is Tronics’ flagship automated labeling system. Having evolved over three decades, it is by far the best value on the market today when it comes to an in-line, automatic pressure sensitive labeling machine.

S3S Premier labelers come in standard, medium, and high speed configurations. They can apply automatically front and back and wrap around labels, top and bottom labels, orientate and label products, can apply crescent shaped labels to tapered round products and are offered in Zero Down Time ZDT redundant label heads that switch back and forth as label rolls run out of labels and they have a proven track across all of the major packaging industries.

Tool–Less Setup

The Tronics S3S 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 S3S 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 S3S 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.

The S3S Series 3 Labeler… Tronics’s Top of the Line Automatic Label Application Machine … Flexible enough to grow with your changing needs…

The S3S comes pre-wired with male/female quick-connect military connectors making field upgrade and their electrical connections a snap. Further, your machine comes pre-drilled and pre-tapped, ready to mount future standard modules.  And, we’ve pre-loaded all the software you’ll need to add standard modules to your S3S in the field yourself or via one of our excellent service technicians.

…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.

S3S Upgradeability … We’re ready when you are.

We know how important it is to keep your product labeling system up and running or in getting it ready to run when business needs change. That’s why we’ve developed the S3S field upgrade features with YOU in mind. With Tronics, you get an adaptable machine that expands with your changing needs, in the field, without costing you a fortune in lost production time or lost opportunities.

Well Designed with Easy Access & Standardized Components

The secret to the S3S having such a great service reputation is inherent in the design itself.
Simplicity and standardization make the S3S 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 S3S 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.
