With the expansion of our brewery, we are working with a P.E. Modular Plus labeler with a very testy auto-splice system. The problem appears to be with the vacuum portion of the unit that holds the start of a new roll to be spliced into the run. The unit that handles our neck labels works like a dream, but the one that handles our body labels will turn on once a month or so if we're lucky. I'm inclined to believe it's an electrical problem, but I wanted to see if the community here has any experience with this or a similar machine who might be able to shed some more light on this mystery. We have a tech coming in two weeks, but that's a long time to wait while we stop mid-run to change label rolls.

Thanks all.
