A “loop” of label stock is created between the two horizontal support rods. A photo-detector observes when the loop is no longer at optimum length and turns the rewinding action on or off. The loop length is simply adjustable by the position of the photo-detector beam.The CAT-3-LC can easily be turned into an Unwinder by a switch. The paper loop allows the CAT-3-LC to feed the printer without any undue tension.The only tension on the label web is determined by the free roller. Its weight can be changed without difficulty by the user, to ensure a tight rewound roll.The CAT-3-LC uses the reliable gear motor used in the CAT-40G as well as a special chassis-mounted photo-detector to start and stop the rewinding action.
