The new PA1200FA front-apply label printer/applicator can print and apply labels to the leading side of a product moving down a conveyor and is currently available with the co.'s H-Series thermal/thermal-transfer printers, with print resolutions of 203 or 300 dpi. After a label is printed, it is stripped from the liner and held by suction on the applicator tamp pad. The tamp pad is mounted on a heavy-duty swing arm that extends over a conveyor and tamps the label to the product. Labels can measure from 231 to 4.438 in.
