    • Loading label into Labeller - The loading process might be daunting at first. With the correct steps and notes taken, the sticker roll can be easily maneuvered into the labeler. When releasing the bottom hatch/cover, you will notice the gears moved to form an opening from the top. The label can be slide through this shaft, emerging from the bottom of the labeller. To aid this process, the tip of the label is folded to ensure easy entry into the labeller. Below is the diagram showing the opening of bottom hatch and the opening of shaft for label entry:

    • PB2 Hatch
    • Reel knobs - The revolving reel is what pulls and moves the labels. There are existing holes (guides) on the labels which serves this purpose. They are the angled U-shaped cuts on the label. You need to position the label guide onto the reel knob properly. Before you do that, the stickers are peeled off from its backing paper. This step removes the problem of sticker jamming up the reel. After ensuring the label guide is in position, close the bottom hatch/cover. Diagram shown as below:

    • PB2 Gear Knob
    • Label Print Position - Most application will not involve all characters in the print band. Hence, the end result of the printing may look misalligned. As such, there is a need to reallign the printing position. This can be done by moving the print mechanism away or towards the machine. When moved away from the labeler, the characters will print more towards the left of the label. Else when moved inwards, the printing will allign towards the label's right side. Below is the guide to adjust the print position:
