Product Information

Asona Cassette Labelling jig

We have several of these available. This one is the cheapest as the screw cap to the liquid reservoir is siezed and cannot be opened. If you wanted this to work (instead of a collectors' piece) then you'd need to drill out a hole through the screw and/or drill out the whole screw and fit a new one. Other than that it's in great used condition. Complete machine.

When these little hand labelling jigs were first introduced (perhaps early 1980s possibly earlier) they increased cassette labelling time x 4 compared to hand labelling with sticky labels. They were an absolute 'must have' for every small/medium sized cassette duplication company. The workings are very simple. There's 2 x spring loaded columns holding paper labels, printed for A and B sides of the cassette. There's a reservoir to hold a plastic melting fluid known as 'Perc' which has a felt pad constantly soaked in fluid which lightly covers the exact labelling area on the cassette plastic side and softly melts the plastic for a few seconds in which time the operator pushes down on one column holding the paper labels which the top label neatly affixes to the shell. Repeat for side 2  (B) label. They were supplied as you see in the picture but many customers built their own little boxes to hold them into about the size of a shoe box, however they worked just as well without. There is nothing that can really go wrong with them except the springs may weaken over yeasr of use and the guide post sometimes needed re-alighning and tightening the screws.

They cost around £300 back then which was quite expensive considering there's little to them (over £1000 in todays money!) yet worth every penny, you'd recoup the cost in a month or so with the savings on labelling costs.
