Print and Apply
Built for Easy Automatic Labeling Integration, Maintenance, and Operation
The pandemic expedited the transformation of automation, including print and apply, across industries. Automated labeling solutions replace manual workflow for better efficiency, to reduce high costs caused by human errors, and to increase 24/7 productivity. Automated print and apply systems are used in high volume applications on labels, cases, pallets, and others in logistics, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, as well as the food and beverage market sector.
Points to Consider
To build a print and apply system, automatic labeling builders have to 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 apply a new print engine system on production lines, there are three key points to consider before you choose the right one.
To synchronize with a system’s PCs or PLCs 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.
