Labelmate CAT-3 label rewinders are built for high-speed and non-stop use, ideal for modern production environment.
The most reliable label rewinders on the market
The Labelmate CAT-3 is fast, able to rewind labels up to 1,250 mm/s and has plenty of power to wind large labels up to 10 kg. It’s high-quality, heavy-gauge steel construction and anti-slip feet keep the unit from moving.
Constant Adjustable Torque (CAT) plus
Designed without belts or clutches which reduces the likelihood of maintenance. The CAT-3 has two selectable torque ranges as well as a variable control for fine tuning tension between the printer and the label rewinder.
Standard Model (6-inch): For winding labels up to 155 mm (6-inches). Fitted with 76 mm fins as standard for winding labels onto 76 mm cores. Additional fins can be bought to allow the user of 38 mm, 40 mm, 44 mm, 50 mm, 70 mm and 100 mm diameter cores.
Wide Label Model (10-inch): Same as standard model but with a longer shaft for winding larger labels up to 255 mm (10-inches) wide. Fitted with 76 mm fins as standard for winding labels onto 76 mm cores. Additional fins can be bought to allow the use of 38 mm, 40 mm, 44 mm, 50 mm, 70 mm and 100 mm diameter cores.
Adjustable Core Model (6-inch): Alternative model with an adjustable core holder to accommodate label core diameters between 25 and 101 mm. For winding labels up to 155 mm (6-inches) wide.
1-inch Core Model: Same as standard model but with a thinner shaft for winding labels onto 1-inch cores.
Optional tension arm for even better winding
All CAT-3 models can be fitted (factory installed) with a tension arm that helps combat a problem where labels at the end of a print run are more loosely wound than those at the start. The tension arm winds consistently from beginning to end, and also prevents the rewinder from pulling labels from the printer.
The tension arm can be used on either side of the rewinder and labels can be wound in either direction. Watch our product overview video to see the tension arm in action on a Wide Label model.
Please note that the tension arm is factory installed and cannot be added later.
