“TWIN-cat-2”
Dual Spindle Unwind / Rewind Station
Versatile Stand-alone Label Unwind / Rewind Stations with Label Inspection and Counting Options!
Now you can conveniently Unwind and Rewind Label Rolls on one piece of equipment!
The world’s easiest solution for wind-in / wind-out, label reversing and inspection applications.
Here’s LABELMATE’s new Dual-Spindle Heavy Duty Unwinder / Rewinder, the TWIN-CAT-2. With two powerful
motors and your choice of core holders you have maximum versatility in setting up the operation you need. Both
spindles can rewind or unwind. You control the direction and torque on each Spindle independently. An External
Halt Control allows you to STOP and START the TWIN-CAT-2 with a foot switch or other external device if
desired. A worldwide universal switching power supply is included for extra power.
Here are some of the many possible applications:
ƒ Unwind and Rewind labels on one machine. Ideal for “wind-in / wind-out” operations.
ƒ Reverse the order of serialized labels on a roll.
ƒ Conveniently rewind labels onto a different core size. With universal Adjustable Core
Holders you can unwind from any diameter core and rewind onto any diameter core
within the range of 25 to 101 mm (1” to 4”) in diameter! Great for production shops
with varied jobs.
ƒ Add the Label Inspection option to create a stand-alone Inspection Station. You can
also add a Label Counter if you need one.
ƒ Wind small rolls of labels from larger ones.
ƒ Conveniently strip the unwanted matrix from die-cut labels for easy disposal as you
rewind them in-line with your printer or off-line.
LABELMATE’s new Unwind / Rewind Stations are available in many different configurations to fit perfectly into
your label production. All TWIN-CAT-2 Models operate at up to 76 cm per second. See “How to Order” below.

Label Inspection and Counter Options
The Label Inspection option, INSP-1, adds a handy Label Inspection Fixture to the side of your TWIN-CAT-2. It
has two rollers over which your labels run as they are presented for inspection. You can also wind-in or wind-out
at the same time as you perform the inspection operation. If you want to, when inspection is complete, you can
conveniently rewind the labels back onto their original core one the same machine by just reversing the direction
of the Rewind Spindles.
You can also order a PC-1 Label Counter for your inspection station. This will count the labels as they pass by a
sensor mounted on the Inspection Fixture. The PC-1 counts single- or multi-across labels and you can preset a
batch size. Counts up. Includes a Halt Control Cable to optionally stop your TWIN-CAT-2 automatically when your
job is finished.
