LD5000 and LD7000 Set up and Maintenance Instructions

The LD5000 (NV5000) and LD7000 (NV7000) label dispensers will handle up to 5" and 7" respectively in label widths.  The following instructions are for setting up and maintaining your label dispenser for years of service.

Set Up Instructions

Using the enclosed 5/32" hex wrench, adjust reel holder arm to vertical.

Place the label roll onto the 1" reel hanger bar.  Slide reel guide arm snug with labels and lock in place with enclosed 3/32" hex wrench to keep the roll in place.  The roll should be against the reel holder arm so that is is held straight. 

Thread the web under the guide rod, between the hold down brush and the strip plate and back under the strip plate.  Lay the web across the slot in the take-up hub.  Lock the web in position with the metal lock rod.  (The take-up hub turns counter-clockwise.)


Hold Down Brush:

Using the upper red thumbscrew on the side of the machine, adjust the hold down brush for tensioning.  For best results, labels should be pressed firmly against the strip plate.  However, if the labels are held too tightly, they will cause excessive drag on the motor.

Photo Sensor:

The photo sensor can be adjusted in any direction to accommodate virtually any label.  Loosening the lower red thumbscrew on the side of the machine allows the photo sensor to swivel and set the overhang distance of the label over the strip plate.  When the label is being fed the correct distance, tighten the lower red thumbscrew. 

Loosen the two screws on the front of the machine to align the photo sensor with the center of the label.  If there are two or more labels across, align the photo sensor with the last label to be removed.  When these two screws are tightened the machine is set.


  • Turn machine off when not in use.
  • Remove liner material from take-up hub at approximately 3" in diameter or if the motor appears to be straining.
  • Do not operate machine without covers in place.
  • Do not operate if inspection reveals a damaged power or sensor cord.
  • Keep strip plate, hold down brush and hub free of adhesive build-up.
