Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0000397A2] Attraction (106) and cutter (130, 170) mechanisms are used on a rotatable drum (100) to controllably sever segments of material from a web (4), with the drum (100) rotated at a rate greater than that of the web (4) to provide tension in the web. A carrier mechanism (400, 460) may be used having at least one article carrier (410a-410e) pivotably coupled to a rotatable hub (409) and controlled via a camming mechanism (429, 442). A fluid dispenser (1094) may also be used to direct a flow of fluid toward a nip (1178) formed between an adhesive roller (1092) and the drum (1038), from a position upstream from the nip (1178). A starwheel (1020) may also be used including a rotatable hub (1204) and an engagement surface (1208, 1210) resiliently coupled thereto defining a pocket (1024) for engaging an article. Furthermore, a discharge starwheel (1042) may be used to transfer articles from the discharge end of an arcuate guide (1040) that opposes a label transfer drum (1038).
