Print and Apply Labeling Machines
Print Apply Labeling Machines are labeling systems that incorporate a thermal transfer print engine to print labels with barcodes and other variable data on a system that applies the label to the product such as; bottles, boxes, bags, or even full pallets. Thermal Transfer printers are also available to imprint RFID information. Print apply labeling machines come in two types; Direct print apply or Loose Loop print apply.
Direct Print Apply Labeling Machines
Direct Print Apply Labeling Machines apply the label that has just printed, in other words directly to the product. This is useful if this label has to go on only this product such as for serial numbers, in pharmaceutical trials, or a just weighed product. Direct Print Apply Labeling Machines are also useful if the production speed requirements are not very high such as on slow moving cartons, pallets or low speed bottling.
Loose Loop Print Apply Labeling Machines
Loose loop print-apply labeling machines are used
for higher speed applications when direct print apply labeling
machines don't have the print speed capacity to keep up with line
speeds and the label information does not change for the batch being
labeled. Print engines typically print at 12 inches/second (203 dpi)
or 8 inches/second (300 dpi). So if we were labeling a bottle at 50
bottles per minute with a 12" label we simply could not keep up with direct
print apply labeling machines. (There is a delay when printing single
labels at a time). But with loose loop print apply labeling machines
we can print continuously by printing on demand while the label
applicator with its higher speed capacities keeps up with line speeds.
