The LAB01 comes with 2 guiding bars, 2 hubs, a crank handle and an Allen key.
First screw the crank handle onto the main roller. Then adjust the distance between the two guide rollers according to the width of the bottle or cylindrical container using the two black plastic rotating disks. For smaller products the main roller must touch the black rubber roller. On the other hand, for larger objects, the two rollers must be completely separated. The ideal fit is observed when the bottle is located just above the black metal bar at the end of the rubber roller.
Once the gap is adjusted, grasp the Allen key supplied with the unit, and tighten the two screws located on each side of the guide roller to secure it.
Then insert the two hubs on each side of the chuck of the roll of labels. Take the first guide bar and slide it along the home cylinder of the spool, then fix it with the black dial on the same bar. Next, place the spool of labels on the hold bar so that the labels appear on the top of the liner. Then slide the second guide bar to the outer end of the spool of labels and secure again by tightening the wheel.
The user will then need to raise the tension brush to pass the strip of adhesive labels. Pass the end of the strip of labels under the label separating bar to the drive rollers. Then release the pressure of the main roller by loosening the two knobs. Guide the label under the first black roll, then under the metal cylindrical roller.
Once the liner is well positioned on the outside of the unit, tighten the two knobs. Then turn the crank handle to launch the device and apply the first label. Position the adjustable brush on the guide surface and remove a new label to verify that the brush pressure is sufficient.
After that, place the center separating bar between two labels, then retighten the wheel. Finally place the bottle between the drive rollers and then operate the crank.
The device is finally installed and ready for use.
