The Marathon® XLA offers fast size changeovers, low maintenance, high operating efficiencies and the ability to handle containers from 8 oz to 3 L at up to 650 containers/min. Features SMARTdrive™, a multi-axis servo-motor drive train with automatic label registration and timing that achieves extreme positional accuracy over the life of the labeler. Five independent servo motors communicate on a high-speed digital bus to synchronize label feeding, cutting, gluing and container transport, eliminating gears, belts and chains. The complete Allen-Bradley drive-train and controls platform consists of servo drives, servo motors, programmable logic controller (PLC) and human machine interface (HMI).
