Step 6B.4: Label from Magazine to the P&P Tool

This Step reviews the design that is necessary to transfer the label from the Magazine to the P&P Tool.

tog_plus        Requirements Specification

To transfer the label from the Magazine to the P&P Tool.

Make the position and motion of the P&P Tool agree with the Stationary Magazine

It is important that the tool does not slide across the label. The label may crease and the print may become damaged.

There are two motion types that satisfy this motion requirement.

a 'stamping' action,

a 'rolling' action.

Nearly all labelling machines use a rolling action to transfer labels.


Design Variables:

Shape of the Magazine - NO: We cannot change the shape of the Magazine - the Magazine is flat.

Motion of the Magazine - NO: We cannot change the motion of the Magazine - the Magazine does not move.

Shape of the P&P Tool - YES: We can change the shape of the P&P Tool

Motion of the P&P Tool - YES: We can change the Motion of the P&P Tool
