How the Velocity Control effects picking up the label on every Bear Label Machine. Every can that rolls into a Bear Label Machine uses the Velocity Control damper continuously. Without it the labels will bounce up and down out of control. This will lead to standing up the label stack and every following can will not pick up a label. The Primary Table Adjuster allows the operator to position the leading edge of the label to the correct height. This adjuster has a spring on top of the knob to absorb the impact of the can as it rolls onto the label stack. Immediately after this happens the label stack will rebound upwards. The Velocity Control damper maintains a constant label height for the following cans. As hundreds of thousands of cans get labeled everyday eventually this part will wear out and not function properly. The life cycle of a Velocity Control damper will vary depending on can speed and how many shifts of production are scheduled each month. When worn out this part will no longer offer the resistance of the labels upward motion. The best plan of action is to add this inspection to the monthly PM schedule and have an extra replacement in your inventory P/N H3000.Read More

Advantages of buying and running a Glue Extrusion System for your Bear Label Machine
By Darel Francis / October 10, 2019
Advantages of buying and running a Glue Extrusion System for your Bear Label Machine Bear’s cold glue can now be applied through a pressurized stainless-steel tube. My first experience with applying cold glue to the lap end of a label involved a paste belt. The glue of choice back then was a dextrin water-based product made by HB Fuller. All Bear Label Machines back then had a paste belt to apply this glue to the paper label. This was a very messy system that required a lot of maintenance and cleaning. Currently all Bear label machines are manufactured with a PLC controlled system called Glue Extrusion. There are several advantages to applying cold glue through a pressurized stainless- steel tube ratherthan a nylon belt. First, it is more efficient and operates much cleaner. Secondly, this new glue extrusion system allows you to run a much more aggressive resin glue that sets up much quicker. This allows for higher production rates with less downtime. Bear Label Machine offers this as an upgrade kit to all machines manufactured before 2008 for under $9,000.00. Most currently produced paper labels are using highly recycled products and slippery varnished coatings. By adding Bear’s glue extrusion, you will experience better production rates through your label machine.
