Print and Apply
Built for Easy Integration, Maintenance, and Operations
The pandemic expedited the transformation of automation, including print and apply applications. Automated labeling solutions replace manual workflow for better efficiency, reduce high costs caused by human errors, and increase 24/7 productivity. Automated print and apply systems are used in high volume applications on labels, cases, pallets, and in the following industries: logistics, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, as well as food and beverage applications.
Points to Consider
To build a print and apply system, automatic labeling operators must integrate a variety of elements together including PC/PLC controllers, scanners, conveyors, system hardware and software, and label design software, etc. Whether you plan to replace a current print engine or add a new print engine on to the production line, there are three key points to consider before you choose the right one.
To synchronize with a systems PC’s or PLC’s to complete print jobs, print engines or print modules must be equipped with a GPIO interface, and support GPIO emulations and printer language firmware to simplify integration and migration efforts.
Print engines or print modules—from components, mechanism design, to mean time between failures (MTBF) and more—must perform 24/7 to maximize uptime.
Select a print engine or print module with the right system design for your applications and daily operations.
