MAXSON Tag Inserter
A pneumatically actuated tag inserter is used to count and mark the number of sheets in a pile.
Compressed air passes through an adjustable flow control valve and actuating an air cylinder, feeds out 6″ (150 mm) of tag stock. When the solenoid is de-energized, (after a dwell time that allows a few sheets to gather on top of the tag), the cylinder which fed the stock out, retracts, cutting the tag off.
The tag inserter can be easily mounted on rotary sheeters, printing presses and the like. Because of the compact design, the units can be placed in tight quarters in various positions. The narrow snout of the tag inserter permits access in difficult to reach applications. Thousands are in operation, installed because of the tag inserter’s outstanding reliability and jam free operation.
Using a counter/multiplier, at a preset count a solenoid is activated that initiates the tag insertion, insuring an accurate count within the skid. The tag stock is a standard weight, 3/4″ (15 mm) wide, maintained in stock. Cartons of 20 rolls are available for quick shipment.
