There are several ways of achieving this, but for the best quality barcodes (especially if they need to be verified against the ANSI standard) it makes sense to use quality white labels with black print.
As packaging line speeds increase, creative ways sometimes have to be found and one such solution is ID Technology’s Series 45 High Speed Label Printer Applicator.
The conveyor speeds of modern packaging lines are faster than thermal printers, even fancy near-edge models, so the printing has to be asynchronous to conveyor speed, or the labeling system will be unable to keep up with the line.
The ID Technology Series 45 solves this dilemma by using a robust industrial print engine that feeds into a controlled loose loop, rather than directly to the product.
This ensures that the printer can run at a comfortable speed (taking advantage of the fact that it can print during the complete cycle time) while the label can be applied at the conveyor belt speed – up to 250 ft/minute.
The label applicator used in the Series 45 is based on our well proven LSI Series 40 applicator. This compact, well engineered applicator is used for a huge array of labeling applications and is one of the building blocks of our LSI Integrated solutions.
The customer has the choice of which manufacturer’s industrial print engine to use. The Series 45 is designed to integrate Zebra, Sato or Datamax print engines, giving a choice of print resolutions of 203, 300, 400 and 600 DPI. Like our applicator, the print engines have been proven with thousands of installations all over the world.
The Series 45 is just one of the many labeling systems that ID Technology can provide. Whatever your labeling application, we can offer a well engineered solution, designed to provide maximum uptime and lowest cost of ownership (especially if combined with ID Technology labels and support services).
