The granted patent (Publication Number: US11884443B2) discloses a method for labeling a reel with a central hole and cylindrical inner surface using a robot and label printer. The method involves engaging the first portion of the inner surface with a movable expansion shaft of the robot while leaving the second portion unengaged, printing a label on an application roller, and attaching the label to the second portion of the inner surface while the robot engages the first portion. The printed label has an adhesive surface facing outwards and is retained on the application roller by suction, being released by blowing.

Additionally, the method includes attaching a second label on the outer surface of the reel by positioning it in contact with the application roller with the first label and rotating both about their respective axes. The application roller moves from a retracted to an extracted position before engaging the second portion of the inner surface. The patent outlines the steps of providing the reel with the central hole, the robot with the movable expansion shaft, and the label printer with the application roller, emphasizing the automation and precision of the labeling process.
