Apparel manufacturers looking for alternatives to sew in t-shirt labels and garment tags (mainly to make the consumer more comfortable in their clothes and to reduce costs) have transitioned to tagless care labeling.
Speed, durability, and ease of use separate the HIX Digital R2R from all other roll label transfer presses. It is designed specifically for high production applications of tagless care labels with transfer times quick as one second on a variety of fabrics. Short web paths, tool-less web guides, and quick release lower platens decrease change-over times and eliminate excessive waste. User-friendly machine controls and a multi-color index reader ensure precise label placement. The HIX R2R easy load system requires no tools, and its sensor adjustment is simple and capable of reading either side of the roll transfer. The reader is programmable to detect virtually all colors in the spectrum in one quick step. Digital controls guarantee precise heat and time control, while the coreless take-up reel makes discarding spent roll stock quick and easy. There’s no need for tape or spare cores and for shaped dies – the quick change over of the lower pad eliminates the handling of hot dies.
