Erhardt+Leimer – Equipment for web guiding and tension control

USA • The German company Erhardt + Leimer will show equipment for web guiding and tension control and video and inspection systems for quality assurance at Labelexpo Americas 2018 Chicago (Stand 327).

The brushless, thus wear-free DRB 23 web guider from the El Guider product family is designed for Ethernet networking, making it possible to use web-based management. An option enables the integration of a splice table with an adhesive roll and pneumatic web clamps. The key parameters are already pre-set on delivery, and a commissioning wizard guides the operator step-by-step through the additional input windows that need to be filled in. The unit is operated via touch display. The installation situation is visualized for the customer on this display in the same way as it presents itself to the operator on the actual machine.


Smartscan is an inexpensive, camera-based quality assurance system. In addition to a video function with zoom, it also enables 200% print image inspection for reliable defect detection, splice detection and detection of missing labels and unremoved matrix. According to E+L it is easy to operate – one button needs to be pressed in order to start the inspection.

Also on exhibition will be the Elscan OMS4 video system with a high image quality. New features include e.g. the user interface can be configured and a joystick keyboard comes with an integrated wheel for navigation and zooming and quick selection function buttons. Elscan now comes with a more powerful computer, offering several additional functions. Different flash systems, e.g. a UV flash, can be selected for a range web surfaces.
